Smallman Set to Release New CD from CARPENTER

Winnipeg, MB - Smallman Records will release the upcoming full-length album from everyone’s favourite farmcore band CARPENTER, a union both the label and band are thrilled about. 

‘We’re ecstatic about joining the Smallman crew; one of our nation’s finest indies!,” says Carpenter lead singer Dan Sioui.  ‘Many of the SMR bands are bros and we have a ton of respect for their roster, both past and present.  We searched high and low for some dirt on Rob and Co. but couldn’t find anyone to talk trash!”


Featuring Dan Sioui of former Vancouver band All State Champion, Carpenter was baptized in the church of John Cougar Mellancamp and has recruited fellow-devotees Kelly Burnham (ex By A Thread), Ryan Howlett (ex Speaking of Heroes) and J.J. Heath (ex Daggermouth).  Carpenter’s rootsy rock sound is supported lyrically through their outspoken stance against the corporate based Agribusiness industry and in favour of sustainable farming practices.


In the fall of 2007, Carpenter entered the legendary Mushroom Studios (Led Zeppelin, Heart, Sam Roberts) in Vancouver to record their first full-length album.  Co-produced and engineered by Shawn Penner and Aaron Nordean (Bend Sinister, The Februarys, Three Inches of Blood), the album has 10 new songs of anthemic rock n roll music with a message.  ‘Law of the Land” is scheduled for release early this summer.
