SideCho Records is proud to announce their recent signings of Ghosts & Liars, The Only Children, and Peachcake. These are the latest additions to the record label’s growing roster, which already includes bands such as 1090 Club, The Spores, Tokyo Rose, and Blinded Black (another recent signing).
Ghosts & Liars features Chris Du Bray and Rachel Bowman, both of who are already familiar with the label. SideCho Records was home to Chris and Rachel’s former band, Some By Sea, and the new music will be a pleasant surprise for fans of the now-defunct band. Ghosts & Liars will be playing this year’s SideCho Records CMJ Showcase that is to take place at Arlene’s Grocery (95 Stanton St., NYC) on November 1. The debut album will follow in Spring 2007.
The Only Children boasts an already-impressive line-up including Josh Berwanger, formerly of The Anniversary, and drum appearances by both Christian Jankowski (also from The Anniversary) and Ryan Pope (formerly of The Get Up Kids). The band is currently in the studio at Black Lodge in KC and will be releasing an album in Spring 2007.
Last is Peachcake from Carefree/Cave Creek, AZ. Made up of Stefan Pruett on vocals and John OÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢Keefe on keyboards, guitar andÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢â‚¬the combination of bothÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢â‚¬ keytar, Peachcake has already been gaining international buzz by winning the Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Best USAÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? category from the 2006 Toronto Independent Music Awards. Out now on Jim AdkinsÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢ (Jimmy Eat World) Western Tread Records is a CD/EP split with another Arizona-based band Less Pain Forever, titled Now We Have Something To Celebrate. You can currently see Peachcake live on tour with Hellogoodbye, but youÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢ll have to wait until next Spring for the new album.
Blinded Black deliver a unique style by combining a heavy synthesizer sound with power-rock. Hailing from St. Louis, MO, the band developed a strong fan base with constant self-promotion and non-stop touring. The band will deliver their debut LP early 2007 that is tentatively titled If TimingÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s EverythingÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã‚¦
Blinded Black have appeared on tours with Bleed the Dream, A Change of Pace, Limbeck, Letter Kills and have made multiple Warped Tour appearances. The fruits of constant touring propelled Blind BlackÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s current EP, Sealed with a Stitch, to the third top-selling rock artist at Vintage Vinyl, with Fall Out Boy taking second place.
Alternative Press magazineÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s Aaron Burgess has featured Blinded Black in its Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Unsigned Band of the MonthÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? section. The passion Blinded Black put into their music, expresses their desire to grow and produce the best music possible.
