We Were Skeletons / Rooftops Pre-orders

New Signing:

Sheesh, what a busy month! We are completely elated to announce the signing of Lancaster, PA's We Were Skeletons. We'll release the band's newest effort, a self-titled album on June 29th on both LP and CD formats. Look for pre-orders to begin around the first of May. The band's brand of screamy, chaotic hardcore should appeal to long-time fans of the genre. The album was recorded with Will Killingsworth (Orchid, Ampere) at Dead Air Studios and is their greatest accomplishment to date. Imagine City of Caterpillar, Kidcrash, Off Minor and Hot Cross, all rolled into one breathtaking statement. We've been listening to it non-stop for months now. Basically on repeat. It rules. The art looks killer too. Nice guys to boot (backed hard). We're excited!

The band will be playing MACRoCk this upcoming weekend and also has several April shows lined up with label mates Pianos Become The Teeth (see below).

APR 03 - Harrisonburg, VA @ MACRoCk – The Artful Dodger w/ Algernon Cadwallader, Native, more
APR 09 - Reading, PA @ Roop Hall (Albright College) w/ Pianos Become The Teeth, Spraynard
APR 10 - Windsor, CT @ Chris Z's House w/ Pianos Become The Teeth, Grown Ups
APR 11 - Newton, NJ @ The Farm House w/ Pianos Become The Teeth, Black Kites
APR 16 - Bethlehem, PA @ Secret Art Space w/ Gods & Queens, Drowning With Our Anchors
APR 23 - Newark, DE @ University of Deleware w/ Paint It Black
APR 24 - Frederick, MD @ Fredrock Free Music Fest

Pianos Become The Teeth

We're very pleased to announce that we've signed Pianos Become The Teeth and will be releasing the Baltimore, Maryland hardcore outfit’s sophomore album, Old Pride, in January of 2010.

The band has a melodic yet uncompromising sound that brings to mind such diverse and influential bands as Thursday, Envy and City of Caterpillar.

Brimming with sincerity and brandishing an experimental ambiance, the band is pushing beyond the boundaries of a stale genre. Mixing elements of screamo, hardcore as well as post rock, Old Pride breathes new life into a once decaying scene. Check them out (and add them) on Myspace.
