Press ReleaseEISLEY SIGNS WITH EQUAL VISION RECORDS

ON TOUR NOW; NEW ALBUM IN EARLY 2011

Tyler, Texas quintet Eisley has signed with the Albany, New York-based Equal Vision Records. The new relationship with the independent label follows Eisley's departure from Warner Bros. Records earlier this year, after two full-length albums and several EPs. Their third album is tentatively planned for an early 2011 release through Equal Vision. Details on the upcoming album's release date, title and tracklist will be announced in the coming weeks.

Eisley singer/guitarist Sherri DuPree Bemis states, "It's really refreshing for us to be working with a label that's driven by passion and has made a name for itself by working really hard with bands they actually love." She continues, "It's especially cool for Eisley to be on a label that started out as a 'punk' label because despite not being a punk band in any way musically, we have always done our own thing, gone against the grain and fought for what we believe in and that is the true essence of punk. We're happy to extend our (already extensive) family."

Equal Vision Records A&R representative Francesca Caldara elaborates, "We've all been familiar with Eisley for years now; some of us have been fans since high school or college. We're especially inspired by the personal connection they have with their fans and are honored to be working with them." Steve Reddy, owner of Equal Vision, adds, "We have always done our best to maintain a family vibe with our artists, so working with them -- a literal family -- has been very natural from the beginning. We are very much looking forward to working and growing with them, and we cannot wait for everyone to hear the new album."

Equal Vision Records is currently home to artists including Chiodos, Pierce The Veil, and Dear and the Headlights, and the former home to artists such as Saves The Day, Circa Survive, and Portugal. The Man.

Kind of an odd label to pick but I'm glad they're with someone they can hopefully be happy with.

I'm guessing he's referring to Max/Chad stuff. Lame joke regardless of what he meant.

this brings back memories of being 16 and hearing my sister play "treetops" on repeat and me wanting to shoot myself.

I'm glad to see they signed to a label. I just didn't see where being an unsigned band would be productive enough to sustain a career for these guys.

I assumed it was going to be something left field like Equal Vision or Epitaph, just because they have the major label distro Eisley needs.
