Music Industry Goes Dark for "Black Out Tuesday" In Response To The Murder of George Floyd


Metal Injection will be joining music industry members and record labels in going dark tomorrow, in solidarity with the nationwide protests in response to the the killing of George Floyd. We stand in solidarity in support of the black community to advocate in the fight against racism, bigotry and violence.

Among the labels joining in going dark are Warner Music Group, which includes Atlantic Records, Warner Records, Parlophone Records, Elektra Records and subsidiaries including Roadrunner. Capitol Music Group, Universal Music Group, Sumerian, The Orchard Group and all the labels they distribute (Metal Blade, Relapse, and others) will join the black out.

A call-to-action message passed around earlier today noted:

“Due to recent events please join us as we take an urgent step to action to provoke accountability and chance.

“As gatekeepers of the culture, it’s our responsibility to not only come to together to celebrate the wins, but also hold each other up during a loss.

“Join us on Tuesday JUNE 2 as a day to disconnect from work and reconnect with our community.


We will return to publishing on Wednesday.
