Tori Amos announces first signing to her new label
Tori Amos has stepped into the producing game, launching her own label Transmission Galactic. While Amos will continue to release her work through the Deutsche Grammophon/Mercury Classics label, England band The Adventures Of … are the first to record through the Transmission Galactic label.
The band’s album Top Hats and Scary Tales is available immediately for digital release. As well, fans can download two tracks just by “liking” the band’s Facebook page, here. Check out the video for lead single ‘Complication’ below.
