OK Go leave EMI

OK Go have announced that they’ve parted ways with EMI and that they have created their own company  Paracadute.

A statement released on behalf of the band reads,

“Just as the band saw an opportunity to do something different with their homemade videos, OK Go see untapped potential in the sea change that the music industry is experiencing and believe there are tremendous opportunities for artists capable of managing their own promotion and distribution. The band, who have always controlled their publishing, merchandise, touring, and all other non-recording rights, are parting by mutual agreement with EMI Music.”
