The End Records' response:
"We got Green Carnation a van for the tour (drove it 2,500 miles from Salt Lake City to New York), hired a tour manager, rented a backline, pressed them for merch for the tour and paid to have their gear flown in from Norway and back - plus gave them cash throughout the tour. The band kept all the money from their shows and merch sales. The End also helped the band get a tour grant from the Norwegian government which covered all their flights and a lot more. Also the licensing fee was paid to Tchort five months before the tour ever happened. We don't understand why he made such an announcement especially a year and a half after the tour."
