A Message From WOBC's Metal Department

This message from Bill at Auburn Records concerning their 25th Anniversary Concert on December 12 at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland, Ohio:

We have just confirmed some new additions to our Auburn Records 25th Anniversary Concert on December 12 at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland, Ohio. An official announcement will soon be forthcoming.

Thank you for all of your complimentary messages of support to both me and the label. It really means a lot to me, especially during these very difficult economic times we are living in. I am doing the best I can to keep things going. Sometimes things do not happen as fast as I would like but there is a lot going on behind-the-scenes as to the reasons for any delays. I choose to keep those reasons private, stay positive and keep moving forward. I operate the label solely out of my love for the music and finance the operation entirely by myself. There are no big investors involved with Auburn Records. The money really means nothing to me. As long as I have enough to keep going, I am okay. Any money the label generates is recycled into more projects. I run a very artist and fan friendly label. Producing a quality product is very important to me. I have been criticized by some of my music industry peers as being too generous. It’s the way I choose to run things and will never change. I am still here after 25 years so I must be doing something right, right? haha…

We have been working very hard to put this special 25th anniversary concert together for you. It has been quite a challenge to organize and coordinate. This event has been taking up a lot of my time but I wanted to make sure we assembled a strong and great line-up for the fans. I decided to make this concert free as a small token of my appreciation to the fans for all of their support over the years. I am fronting all of the production and marketing costs, while the bands are donating their time to perform. Special thanks to my Team Auburn crew and the Beachland Ballroom for their support too. Working together we are going to deliver a first class festival you are not going to forget.

Hope to see you in Cleveland on December 12!
