F.O.F. Label Group/EMI has signed the N.E. Pennsylvania rock band, The Drama Club; cited by critics as an “indispensable staple of the rock scene”. “This is one of the hardest working bands out there and they have independently built a buzz since forming nearly three years ago. We’ve got a great team behind these guys and I am excited about the future possibilities,” stated F.O.F. President, Denny Sanders upon the announcement.
The EP was produced by Rob Caggiano (Anthrax/Jesse Malin) and mixed by Jay Baumgardner (Evanescence/Papa Roach) features the blistering lead single “November”, already one of the top songs on Sirius radio’s Octane channel, as well as anthem like follow up, “Brand New Day”. “Early research on ‘Brand New Day’ and ‘November’ are showing signs that these songs are a hit on AOL Radio. With the great listener response, I’m looking forward to hearing more music from this band,” said AOL Radio’s Senior Programming Manager Peter Schiecke.
Over the past three years the band has honed their exceptional live show and shared the stage with dozens of bands including Breaking Benjamin, Velvet Revolver, Hoobastank, Flyleaf, Sound The Alarm Silvertide, Leo and City Sleeps. The band has also been profiled and featured in Metal Edge, Purevolume, Melodic.net and various other media outlets.
F.O.F./EMI will release The Drama Club’s self titled EP on November 11, 2008. Look for the band to tour extensively for the remainder of 2009 and for their follow up debut LP in 2009.
