Xtra Mile Recordings are proud and excited to announce the signing of formidable Tennessee band, Glossary to the label and give details of their forthcoming brand new album!
We welcome the five-piece from Murfreesboro, Tennessee with open arms and already have plans in place to release their incredible album 'Long Live All Of Us' on 15th April 2013.
After amassing a loyal and fervent fanbase Stateside, this will be the band's first proper release this side of the Atlantic. 'Long Live.' takes their influences farther than ever before, adding piano, haunting pedal steel, R&B-influenced horns and more to their own style of romanticized rock & roll. The songs are well-intentioned narratives that emphasize the great attributes of mankind - mercy, redemption, forgiveness and second chances.
Quite simply - it blew us away and by giving this great band a home outside of North America for the first time, we're hoping for big things. This release looks like it could be the one to take them to new levels.
Managing Director of Xtra Mile Recordings, Charlie Caplowe says of signing the band: 'We've been playing this album for a few months now after stumbling across it in the US. I am massively excited we also get to put it out and hopefully more people will now hear it and also love it.'
And the band says: 'We are really excited to finally have the opportunity for our music to reach people in the UK and Europe. We are also very excited to be working with the Xtra Mile team and couldn't ask for a better introduction to this new audience.'
Glossary is: Bingham Barnes, Kelly Kneiser, Joey Kneiser, Todd Beene and Eric Giles.
