This is actually a pretty interesting endeavor.
You've got the guitarist of Dance Gavin Dance who formed the label and signed the band.
You've got the vocalist/drummer of Hail The Sun managing and booking the band.
You've got vocalists from Dance Gavin Dance, A Lot Like Birds, and Hail The Sun guesting.
And the band is basically unknown, from what I can tell.

I wonder what kind of traction Stolas can get from all this assistance. I know many people are anti-guest vocals, but I've always enjoyed the concept, even when it's heavily done.

Damn, that's awesome! Never heard of these guys but I'm suddenly highly anticipating this! I wish there was a single to go along with the announcement. It seems that it's gonna be quite a year for Swan. He has this label thing going on, plus new DGD, and new Secret Band, and there was that other project with Matt Geise right?

Sorry, forgot to mention - first single is w/ Kurt, and will release Feb 14.
And yeah, Will's got all the projects you mentioned - should be a busy 2013.
