Keep up to date with all that is happening with Smallman and all of our no-good bands. As well, we’ll be running exclusive giveaways for the mailing list (pieces of carpet, old fax machines ... you know, “cool stuff”), so sign up now to be part of the magic.
So we’ve been sitting on this one a while, waiting for a couple of things to get worked out - but we can finally ‘officially’ announce this today, on heart to heart day. Sick City, from our hometown of Winnipeg, will be releasing their forthcoming full length on Smallman in Canada sometime in late spring/early summer. The album will be available to all you non-Canadians through some label called Trustkill.
If you haven’t heard this band, you should go now to their myspace page and give it a couple of spins. They are an incredble band with catchy hooks - and gooood looking to boot.
They’ll be heading into the studio to record the full length in March and then the touring will begin in earnest.
Smallman has already been working with the band as management, so they already know how great we are. I mean, we already know how great they are. Semantics…
That’s right. The new video for This is Just The Beginning, has been added to medium rotation at muchmusic.com and heavy rotation at Much Loud. The full video can be seen at the link below. We need you to request the shit out of it at the following emails so that we can get them big, and then they can go to MuchMusic for Much On Demand and talk about great things like falafel and hoagies.
But you’re asking yourself, “how can I, a lowly music lover, help out a such a worthy cause?”. Simple, my friends. Tie yourselves to your computer tonite and just keep emailing the following addresses. And talk to all your cool friends on myspace, you know the one’s with the “you’re so hot” pics, and tell them to request the song as well. We want a veritable email maelstorm. Understand? Good.
As if we’re not busy enough right now - what with the new Comeback Kid release and the new release from The Reason, as well as burning any piece of furniture that we’re not using in order to generate enough heat to warm two fingers so that we can type (‘Holy fuck, it was minus 40 - and that needs no conversion people, that’s farenheit and celsius).
I digress. What that diatribe was leading up to was the simple fact that we’ve signed a new band - Daggermouth from Vancouver. We’ve been liking the band since we first heard their stuff late in 2005…and so in a classic Smallman fashion, we bided our time and dragged our heels and finally started working with them two years later. Make sense? Of course not, that’s why you’re not running an incredibly successful indie label and are probably making 17 times more money than we are. Losers.
We are very excited about Daggermouth. Great people on top of good songs. Their new album, available March 13, is entitled Turf Wars. We’ll probably get some samples up shortly. But in the meantime, check out some of their stuff at their myspace page and home page.
