RITE OF PASSAGE RECORDS SIGNING + "CHOICES"
Written By: Ashley De Beer, 23/02/2012
We've got fantastic news that comes with our new website! We have just been signed to US record label Rite Of Passage Records /Mediaskare Records. We are so stoked about this, words really cant describe. For a band like us to be a part of a family that gives home to some of the biggest bands in the Metal and Hardcore scenes, its truly something we never thought would be possible when we started out a couple years ago; some of new label mates would include: As Blood Runs Black, Hundredth, It Prevails, Deez Nuts, King Conquer, Betrayal, Confession, Darasuum, Redeemer, Creations, Bury Your Dead, Suffocate, Endwell, Lionheart, Reign Supreme, The Red Shore, Volumes and so many more really great bands.
Mediaskare Records basically started Rite Of Passage Records a short while ago as a starting point for up and coming bands. "Rite Of Passage Records is the perfect model for an independent label like Mediaskare to really develop and nurture up and coming acts that we feel have a long and bright future without exposing them to too much too soon" commented Mediaskare Records owner Baron Bodnar. "A big problem in the current state of music is that instead of really taking the time to develop bands, labels are throwing them out to the wolves right away and their longevity is dramatically cut short." He added.
With all the above in mind, we feel there is no greater home for our band, and for us to be working with a label that understands growth and our ideals as a band, the road ahead can only be a truly exciting one. We'll be gearing up for US tours shortly, news in the coming weeks with follow on all that good stuff.
Red more on the announcement on the Mediaskare Records website here.
In the meantime, check out our new home and get stoked!
"CHOICES" hits stores all over the world May 22nd!!! So get yourself well pumped on that and prepare yourself for an onslaught of us pumping the album's release. Starting right now, go listen to the brand new track "THREADBARE" and let yer mates we're coming!!!
Lastly, we just want to thank you all for your patience with us on this album, its been a long haul all in all but we're pretty sure you guys will all be stoked when you get your hands on this one. Expect some tour dates to follow shortly.
