Published Apr 15, 2010Vancouver, BC's hard-working and harder-touring hardcore band Grave Maker have taken a moment off from playing mosh-ready breakdowns to announce they've signed to long-running hardcore label Victory Records and that a release date for their debut for the label is already set.
The band will be releasing their first Victory full-length, Ghost Among Men, on June 22. Grave Maker were signed with Winnipeg's Smallman Records, who released 2009's Home Is Where the Heartache Is EP and reissued the band's debut, Bury Me at Sea, in 2008.
Apparently, Grave Maker didn't peruse Streetlight Manifesto's expletive-filled memo to Victory Records before signing on that dotted line. The ska band, like several other Victory bands over the years, don't have much good to say about their label's business practices.
Still, congrats to Grave Maker. The band will be celebrating by doing a bunch of U.S. touring throughout April and May; head here for a complete listing of the dates.
Thanks to Punknews for the heads-up.
