Due to some recent budget cuts at Universal some good artists had to be let go. We recently talked with Shawn Fisher of Son of a Bad Man, whom were one of those good bands to be shown the door, another  was Nashville’s Throwing Gravity. It’s unfortunate that they’re no longer with the label, but even more unfortunate is that the band’s album got shelved because this will further complicate it’s release. Despite the circumstances surrounding the band, Throwing Gravity’s Nick James said that they’re not letting it affect them.

“We're not down on it. We're all glad that it's happening now. I know that the industry is going through a lot of change right now. And it might have been the best thing that could ever happen,” James told Alternative Addiction. “We think that it will. We also feel like that if we had to do it all over again we would make the same choice. I can't see us making any changes from the information we got in the beginning and the people we met."

As for the record that the band recorded for that label debut, it might not be easy to get it released, but it will eventually see the light of day according to James.

“Luckily for us we had some things worked out. It's looking like the albums going to be okay. We're looking out in that area of things. We're just not certain yet about the release. Hopefully ya know sometime before... we die,” joked James.

While waiting to clear the red tape, the band’s not sitting on their hands waiting. They’re currently working on acoustic material. Alternative Addiction recently posted a free download of an acoustic version of their track “Finally Over,” which is available now in the AA Downloads section. According to James, the track is going to be the first of a few songs that the band will release on an acoustic EP they plan to release in the next couple of months.

“We’re working on some of the new stuff, we're looking at putting a new spin on some of the songs,” explained James. “Nothing too dramatic to them, just taking the songs down a notch and putting a new spin on it. I think we're going to do a 5-6 song EP and hopefully release it in March."

So the acoustic EP will come out in March, but other than putting out that acoustic EP, what does the band want to get done? James said a big part of what they want 2011 to be is a tour. "We definitely want to be on the road. That's close to number one on our list is getting back on the road.
