Dear friends, listeners, artists and labels,
It has been one hell of a week, and we could not be more excited to bring you some truly unbelievable news.
On Friday, we announced that we had run out of funding and would be shutting down the Earbits service. We received countless emails from artists and listeners showing their support for the Earbits vision, and they spoke up on Twitter and across the web. Unfortunately, we had no choice but to go offline two days ago.
The sentiment of the community did not go unnoticed. Since then, a strategic partner has stepped forward and provided the necessary funding to bring Earbits back online indefinitely. The web service and mobile apps have been relaunched, effective immediately. Seriously…go look!! —> www.earbits.com
As is the nature of these things, I can’t provide much more information at this time. What we can say is that we feel truly blessed by the support that we received this week. With the help of our strategic partners, we look forward to not only continuing the services that our fans and artists have come to love but positioning ourselves at the center of a music industry revolution.
We will be sharing any further details with our partners, users and the community just as soon as we can.
Thank you to everyone who came out in support of Earbits and our team. It was the most heartwarming show of support anyone could have asked for. Thanks to you, our future is now looking brighter than ever.
