Cinderella are a bluesy glam metal band who had huge 90s hit albums and retain a large live following. Here's their bass player explaining why it's so long since they released new material ... and he was speaking back in 2011, when the economics were more favourable than they are now!
You could argue that there's a false sense of entitlement here, but this is how many acts are viewing the logistics of recording, mixing and distributing new material
In a 2011 interview SCTimes.com, Eric explained why there was little incentive for CINDERELLA to make a new studio record. He said: "In the musical climate these days and the way we like to do things, it's not really worth doing it anymore. Our last record cost $1.2 million to make and the cheapest record we've ever made was $400,000. You can't do that these days because no one even sells $400,000 worth of records, CDs or downloads. Everything's changed. Everyone makes records in their bedrooms basically for next to nothing and in my opinion, most of them sound like it. That's not what we're about."
