EXCLUSIVE: Dead Letter Circus Sign Label Deal With UNFD

Apr 23rd 2013 | 3:40pm | Scott Fitzsimons
Brisbane melodic progressive rock outfit Dead Letter Circus have signed to the UNFD label for the release of their second album.

The news comes as the five-piece's debut This Is The Warning was accredited Gold (35,000 sales) earlier this month. Its follow up is slated for release in August this year.

Today the band's vocalist Kim Benzie said he felt UNFD was, “the most progressive label in the country. They are thriving within the new model of the music industry and just seem to go from strength to strength with every step they take.”

UNFD's A&R Luke Logemann said, “Jaddan [Comerford, owner of UNFD] and I have loved Dead Letter Circus for a long time – we even tried to sign them many years ago to our old label, Boomtown Records. That passion for the band never changed, and when we saw the opportunity to work with them, we did everything we could to make it happen. The precision they play with, the dedication to their craft and the maturity of their song writing makes DLC a one-in-a-million band.”

The band are coming off a capital cities tour earlier this month after a year of international exposure kicked off by a SXSW performance in 2012. They've been recording their second album in the past six months with long-time producer Forrester Savell. The first new music will be available to fans in May.

UNFD – who are distributed through Warner – has also had a big 12 months with The Amity Affliction's ARIA number one record and Northlane's recent top three.

This Is The Warning debuted at two on the ARIA Charts in 2010, staying in the top 50 for three weeks, and triple j listeners voted it into the Hottest 100 Albums Of All Time.
