Swim Deep sign with RCA Records
Swim Deep have announced they've signed with Sony imprint, RCA Records.
The band posted the following message on their Facebook page earlier today:
"We did something we’ve all dreamed of since we were kids, we signed to rca. Now we’re recording an album for you. Cheers to everyone involved, and all of you. Here’s to the future."
We've hears some horror stories recently relating to indies signing to major labels, but we wish the band all the best with this move and suspect they'll do pretty well out of this.
Swim Deep are gearing up for the release of their debut album Where The Heaven Are We, which is available from August 5th via RCA Victor/Chess Club. In anticipation, the Brummie band have teamed up with Fryars for this remix of their catchy-as-hell single, 'King City'. [read more]
