Good Fight Music signs The Contortionist

Official press release:
Indianapolis, Indiana's own The Contortionist
are pleased to announce their signing with Good Fight Music
. The Contortionist have worked hard to earn a loyal hometown following through consistent regional shows, coastal touring and two self-released EPs. Their ability to dole out their sounds to epic proportions in a live setting peaked the interest of the record label Good Fight Music, so in early-2010, shortly after the staff had caught them live, a deal had become imminent.
Guitarist Robby Baca had the following to say about working with Good Fight Music: "We are very excited about joining the Good Fight family. We are confident that their experience in the record industry is exactly what we need to make what we love doing our career. We look forward to fighting the Good Fight with these fine folks."
The Contortionist have tapped Unearth's Ken Susi
to produce their debut full-length album in early Spring of this year. When asked about what drew him to the band Susi said the following, "The Contortionist is not your typical/run of the mill band. Lots of bands in this day and age are copy cats or just plain old rip-offs of other bands. This is truly an original band, from the overall look, sound and structure of the songs."
The Contortionist plan on releasing their album in mid- to late-summer of 2010, with tours all across the U.S. leading up to and surrounding the release. www.myspace.com/thecontortionistband

The music can be best described as The Acacia Strain copying Misery Signals copying BTBAM. Better than most of the shit on Sumerian though.

awful waste of time, this band. any girl jean wearing pussy band that plays choppy breakdowns while squatting in unison can get signed nowadays.

good band. but what the fuck is this label?
3/23/2010 5:15:49 PM
This shit is years better than most "choppy breadown" bands that come out. It's clear these kids are legitimate musicians. Sorry they can't shit on their instruments and record it like Defeater.
