Reign Supreme signs with Mediaskare Records

Philadelphia, PA based band Reign Supreme has signed with Mediaskare Records and will release their upcoming EP 'Sky Burial' later this year through the label. "All the bands I know on Mediaskare love being on the label. That was pretty much enough for me," commented vocalist Jay Pepito. He added, "We just want to work with a label that will bend over backwards to help us achieve our goals as a band, we feel like Mediaskare is that label." The band will soon enter the studio with producer Will Putney (For Today, After The Burial) to begin recording the EP. "Sky Burial comes from the Tibetan tradition of bringing the dead to a mountain, or other place where vultures gather. The vultures and other animals consume the corpse, and hence, it becomes a vessel to feed and care for these creatures," explained Pepito on the title for the EP. "It's a cool idea, wherein your empty shell of a person becomes of some utility to some other thing, and I just found the idea of that fascinating; it makes more sense to me than embalming the dead in an attempt to preserve some self-imposed idea of what they were like in life, and then tossing that homemade mannequin into a pine box, and letting it rot. It seems to me to be more pragmatic, to let yourself be the thing that sustains your ecosystem. It reminds us that we are just animals, that we are not special because of our smart cars and Facebook, and that we, in a sense, are simply carrion." Speaking to what they want their fans to get out of 'Sky Burial,' the band stated, "We just want them to enjoy it. We hope that it brings emotions out in them, and that our music becomes the soundtrack to some of the best years of their lives. There is no socio-political agenda with us, we are just angry, and want to rage."

i confess to enjoying this band, but the less i know about what they're thinking and issuing in press releases, the better

thetowerofrome 7/16/2011 6:13:39 AM

what an awkward terrible choice.

xdarylstrawberryx 7/16/2011 8:49:07 AM

Lolemmure 7/15/2011 6:12:00 PM This just seems weird to me!!! Band is awesome though! why does this seem weird to you? reign supreme is a metalcore band and mediaskare signs predominantly metalcore bands.

polepatrol 7/16/2011 11:24:05 AM

*insert my usual pole smoking comment here* this band is so terrible they don't deserve me putting time into thinking of a clever way to say that they smoke pole
