Mediaskare Records launches sub-label

Official press release: Rite Of Passage Records, a new subsidiary of Mediaskare Records has announced its first three signings: Creations, Float Face Down, and Stand Your Ground. All three will have albums in stores this year through the label. "Rite Of Passage Records is the perfect model for an independent label like Mediaskare to really develop and nurture up and coming acts that we feel have a long and bright future without exposing them to too much too soon" commented Mediaskare Records owner Baron Bodnar. "A big problem in the current state of music is that instead of really taking the time to develop bands, labels are throwing them out to the wolves right away and their longevity is dramatically cut short." he added. Australian hardcore band Creations will be the first artist to release an album through Rite Of Passage, with their debut 'The Gospel' set to be released this summer. Meanwhile, New Jersey's Float Face Down and Tennessee's Stand Your Ground are currently in the studio recording their album, which will see release later this year.

LoydChristmas 3/11/2011 5:58:48 PM

young bands, come hear to learn how to not make money.

demonburger 3/11/2011 6:12:54 PM

when I clicked on the homepage link the heading of the webpage said "rite of passge" not passage. >_<

brend00m 3/11/2011 6:26:00 PM

Doesn't Mediaskare have, like, one band signed to them? As Blood Runs Breakdowns or something?

tits_n_bholes 3/11/2011 6:34:09 PM

Baron's a fat dicklickin c*nt. did i miss something? when was mediaskare doing well enough to start expanding? good label if you want no carreer or support. a spade is a spade and mediaskare and all affiliates chug loads all day.

John Calvin is stoked.

timxantihero 3/11/2011 7:17:06 PM

Stand your ground is a hardworking band, sucks they're probably going to end up broke and fcked over.

Landmine_spring 3/11/2011 7:26:56 PM

I wonder how long it took for "stand your ground" to have the stroke of genius that is their band name.

saint_wanger 3/11/2011 8:04:40 PM

Hello Strike First pt2

saint_wanger 3/11/2011 8:08:18 PM

ALSO aka "label pays nothing for recording, does zero promo outside other mediaskare normals which is zero already, and does limited pressing" so stoked!!!!!

burgundy 3/12/2011 12:16:57 AM

If these bands aren't even good enough to be on Mediaskare records...

cnnole 3/12/2011 12:22:47 AM

sucks for these bands...mediaskare is bad enough. they help one or two bands on the main label, so i wonder what they'll do for bands on a sub label? send them a ghost inside cd?

sgd54 3/12/2011 12:36:48 AM

Makes almost as much sense as launching a record store. Good week for the flat-brim crowd.

urmoshin 3/12/2011 2:33:51 AM

Bunch of retards on here that don't know shit. Pretty good bands.

Lolemmure 3/12/2011 7:53:59 AM

Float face down is a piece of shit band....Their singer is an ape...saw them once and he said "kill somebody" at least 27 times.

charliesheen2 3/12/2011 11:23:45 AM

Volumes is stoked

ilovetacos 3/12/2011 2:21:17 PM

deaf god fearing youths are stoked

blankz 3/12/2011 7:51:53 PM

it'd be funny if releases from this "sub-label" were never delayed/pushed backed

firstblood68 3/13/2011 5:09:52 AM

Baron's trying to cash in on Jesus... way to go

Kevinjalmax 3/13/2011 9:20:42 AM

Baron had to be translated by a bilinguist who also livrs on Tatooine.

wordless_chamber 3/13/2011 9:27:02 AM

Shouldn't you be a much larger label to launch a "sub" label? i don't get it

duckduckfootloose 3/14/2011 1:54:46 PM

If Mediaskare is in receivership, this could be a way for Baron to continue to bring in money without having to give it to a bank...

webtrashter 3/14/2011 2:21:52 PM

cool, maybe now ron face down can start paying back the money he owes all the bands in NJ instead of getting more siiiiick god-hate tattoos. must be awesome to be in a band that can't even play shows in their home state.

Lolemmure 3/19/2011 11:25:03 AM

Ron Gilbert is a gay!
