Wrong artist name metadata

Wrong artist name metadata

ThomWim

I would like to report some metadata errors in the Spotify catalogue.

 

This artist name is wrong. The band was never named "The Epidemic". The correct name for this band is "Epidemic" (without the "The"). Their only album's title is also "Epidemic".

 

I first reported this error in 2017 and it was never corrected.

 

For proof, here's an archived version of the band's website.

Hey @ThomWim, thanks for reaching out to the Community!

I'm sorry that you didn't get a response back in 2017. 

I'd recommend getting in touch with the distributor if you can, to let them know. Also, I'd recommend reporting the content following these steps

 

I hope this helps!

The album was released by Warner Music. I don't know how to contact them, but the artist name (Epidemic) is correct on other streaming services.

It's been one month, and the name is still wrong.

 

I just reached out to two band members on Twitter and told them that Spotify got the band's name wrong. [It should be "Epidemic", not "The Epidemic"] The band's bio is 100% correct, but they were never called "The Epidemic".
