Former THE HAUNTED Singer PETER DOLVING Says SPOTIFY Is A ‘Ripoff Construction’

AltSounds recently conducted an interview with former THE HAUNTED frontman Peter Dolving. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below. AltSounds: What do you think about the new and popular streaming services like Spotify? Do you think it is fair for the artists? Peter Dolving: Well, this is not even an opinion; It is NOT fair to the artists. ESPECIALLY if they sign the rights to their work away to an outside entity. It's really as simple as that. Spotify etc. are ripoff constructions. There is ONE place that do it right, and it'sBandcamp.com. True story. AltSounds: There's still a great discussion about how damaging that music piracy has been to the music industry and to the artists that try to sell their work. Do you think illegal downloads can help people to discover bands and records they would later buy merchandise, go to gigs or even buy original albums?
