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.
