THE SOUNDS GEAR UP FOR NEW ALBUM,
CROSSING THE RUBICON
DUE OUT JUNE 2ND

PARTNER WITH ORIGINAL SIGNAL RECORDINGS (OSR) FOR NORTH AMERICAN RELEASE
(New York, NY) - Original Signal Recordings is proud to announce the release of CROSSING THE RUBICON, the highly anticipated album from Swedish quintet The Sounds. Set for a June 2nd release, CROSSING THE RUBICON, follows up the successful DYING TO SAY THIS TO YOU, which caught the attention of many for it's fist-pumping rock, club anthems and sexed up new wave.

As a band who has carved out their career by doing things their own way, The Sounds formed their own label, Arnioki Records, and created CROSSING THE RUBICON before choosing a label to partner with, giving them complete control in a rapidly evolving music industry. A partnership with OSR is perfect for a band that deserves to benefit from the career they have built thus far. Together, they will seek innovative and dynamic ways to develop the band in a new climate.

Original Signal Recordings Co-Founder Lucas Mann commented, "We are incredibly excited about partnering with The Sounds, not only because they have made a record that we love, but because it further validates the idea that the future of our business is really about talent and hard work within an equitable deal structure. The Sounds personify that work ethic, having built a name brand mainly by true word of mouth and without the benefit of big radio, and we are excited to help take that to the next level." Band manager John Davis adds, "The Sounds have always been forward thinking leaders; through their music, their fashion, and now how they approach the business of music. We are thrilled to have formed a true partnership with OSR where the band have the ability to express themselves creatively, and in a new business model."

Over the last few years, The Sounds have garnered a massive fanbase built upon non-stop touring, two acclaimed records, great film/TV and video game placements and an organic word of mouth response. Renowned for their intense and exuberant live shows, The Sounds have captivated fans around the world by playing more than 500 shows in support of their last album, selling out major venues in over 25 countries worldwide, including the legendary Hollywood Palladium (to the delight of 4,000 fans). The band has been confirmed as support for No Doubt this summer, along with a series of headlining dates (please see below for North American itinerary).

Recorded in Sweden, Los Angeles and New York, CROSSING THE RUBICON continues to deliver gripping hook-filled songs full of the punch and swagger that helped bring the Swedish quintet from Helsingborg to the world. With songs that have an undeniable energy, like the dance electro-funk of "Beatbox," and the powerful combination of heartfelt emotion, soaring guitars and synth-pop on first single "No One Sleeps When I'm Awake," the new album presents a deeper version of the sound that established the band as one to watch.

Original Signal Recordings is a full-service independent record label with major label distribution and works with a wide range of artists including: Ingrid Michaelson, Butch Walker, The Bronx, Longwave, David Ford and Blanche.
