We know we've been keeping quiet over the past few months, and during that time we've been writing, demoing, and working with different producers/record label people. We are happy and excited to announce that we will be singing a deal with Elm City Music, a new label based in New Haven, CT run by Michael Caplan (former Epic VP, Sony A&R, and head of Strawberries Records) and our good friend Vic Steffens (Head of Horizon Music Group). They have a major distribution deal with EMI, and have signed metal super-group Adrenaline Mob (members of Dream Theater, Symphony X and Disturbed) and a Tampa based group called Miggs. We are in the pre-production stage doing final demos, and are preparing to begin recording a new album with both Michael and Vic at the helm. We plan on releasing our follow up to "Mile Marker Zero" in early 2013.
On Sunday Night, Michael and Vic joined WPLR's Local Bands show to talk about the label, and announce that Mile Marker Zero will be the first local act signing with them. They're hope is to bring local CT acts to the National Stage along with other major groups that they are looking to sign.
They also premiered a brand new song entitled "Where I Want You" that was mixed by Richard Mouser (Transatlantic, Weezer, Oleander). You can hear the simulcast of the show at www.thelocalbandsshow.com.
Michael Caplan joined Fox CT Morning news on Monday morning, also announcing that Mile Marker Zero will be signing to Elm City Music.
We are very excited for everyone to finally hear all of the new music we have been working on, so join us on our facebook and twitter pages (links on the main page) for all of the updates, pictures, and videos as we prepare to take this show on the road!
See you soon!
