Razor & Tie has announced the signing of the Southern California band FINCH. The group is recording its third studio album with producer Brian Virtue (DEFTONES, 30 SECONDS TO MARS, JANE'S ADDICTION, AUDIOSLAVE) for a late 2014 release. A single will precede in June.
Comments FINCH in a statement: "It's been an incredibly productive and busy year for us.
"We're excited about our partnership with Razor & Tie and can't wait to get our new record out this year.
"Razor & Tie pursued us from the beginning of our anniversary shows last year and has shown a lot of faith in the band.
"We're making what we feel is a powerful and meaningful record and we couldn't be happier about all the support Razor & Tie have given to us."
Adds Razor & Tie A&R executive Mike Gitter who signed FINCH: "FINCH are as vital a live band and as focused a creative force as they were when 'What It Is To Burn' was released. The new songs they've spent the past year writing are classic FINCH with the poise and muscle of a band as locked-in and fired up as ever. We're exciting to be working together."
In 2013, FINCH reunited to its nearly original lineup and announced that they would embark on the "What It Is To Burn" tenth-anniversary tour. The post-hardcore band performed the full-length in its entirety with a few extra bonuses for fans along the way to sold-out crowds including Pomona, California; Boston, Massachusetts; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and overseas in London and Paris.
FINCH has released two studio albums, one live album and two EPs to date, and has sold over one million albums worldwide.
FINCH is Nate Barcalow (vocals),Randy Strohmeyer (guitar),Alex Linares (guitar),Alex Pappas (drums) and Daniel Wonacott (bass).
The band is managed by Andy Harris and represented for touring by Jeremy Holgerson at The Agency Group.
