Official press release:
Roadrunner Records Australia is proud to announce the signing of Melbourne's Behind Crimson Eyes.
Jon Satterley, MD of Roadrunner Australia, enthused:
"Thought-provoking, aggressive, experimental, independent?.Behind Crimson Eyes have demonstrated over the past 2 years that their unique and personal brand of emo-tinged heavy rock is light years ahead of the rest of the Australian scene. We are privileged to have this exciting band join Roadrunner's international roster."
Prior to signing, Behind Crimson Eyes have been instrumental in their own successes, which have included:
-The Art Of War debuted at number 17 on the Australasian Aria charts
-The Art Of War debuted at Number 1 on the last ever Triple J Net 50 program
The band played the main stage of the Melbourne Taste Of Chaos at Rod Laver Arena last year
Josh Stuart, BCE vocalist, on the signing to Roadrunner:
"We don't have to compromise our values for them to market our music. They are of the school of thought that the band makes the music and the label does the marketing. So they basically told us to make whatever record we want. And this is what we've done."
Behind Crimson Eyes are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album, recorded at Sing Sing studios Melbourne and produced by Richard Stolz (also producer of the band's former EPs).
