    I'm really happy that No Devotion found a new home; I was a little sad after that whole Martin Shkreli debacle.

    Yes - tons of potential with that band. I really dug their sound and was bummed that the plug got pulled far too soon. 2021... a year of new beginnings!

    Agree 100%. I was pretty incensed when I read something about Collect Records recently calling it a "shell label for Shkreli" >:-(
