Ferret Music signs Underneath The Gun

Thursday, August 07, 2008 2:39 PM PT

Ferret Music has signed Corona, California metal band Underneath The Gun. Originally formed when its members were only twelve years-old, the group has since independently released two albums.

Guitarist Trevor comments on the deal: "Ferret was the best choice for us because we felt that the label had enough resources to fulfill all of our needs as a band, while still being an indie label which would give us the opportunity to have a personal relationship with everyone we work with. We felt this balance was really important to the future and growth of our band... Our goal for the music we write is to bring a pretty aggressive metal approach, but giving our own feel to it without limiting ourselves to one particular genre of metal. We also strive to write lyrics with a meaningful message about what we believe in a way that we feel everyone can relate to."

You can check out some of the band's material online here.

30 seconds of being on their myspace has led me to this conclusion: gay shit for gays, by gays

8/7/2008 2:55:59 PM
Wow top friends with Emmure plus generic music to boot? Score!

8/7/2008 2:57:19 PM

8/7/2008 3:00:30 PM
my faith in carl severson has just been extinguished.

8/7/2008 3:03:50 PM
This is a joke right? A really, really bad joke? Please tell me it is.

8/7/2008 3:05:01 PM
damn..ferret really went downhill;/

8/7/2008 3:07:16 PM

8/7/2008 3:08:37 PM
Ferret sucks.They sign so many terrible bands.

8/7/2008 3:18:13 PM
i've lost all faith in this music scene

8/7/2008 3:33:38 PM
They're all wearing V-necks......how gay

8/7/2008 3:39:19 PM
fck you guys, this band is great. And my band is playing with them! This is very good news indeed...

8/7/2008 3:59:22 PM
pffft...play with Arsis and then get back to us

8/7/2008 4:06:39 PM
This would not have happened if it weren't for Elysia. Music=politics.

8/7/2008 4:07:31 PM
They are what, 13 now? I think one of them was on Dateline to Catch a Predator as the bait.

8/7/2008 4:22:54 PM
i guess i will have to be the first to make fun of these asshats for starting their band when they were 12. and i'm sure they are probably 15 by now. WOW!!! time to retire fellas

8/7/2008 4:25:13 PM
the last good band ferret signed was Torn Apart

8/7/2008 5:37:40 PM
I think I would rather listen to my sack slap against my leg during a set of jumping jacks, then listen to this band.

8/7/2008 5:40:32 PM
the amount of hatred i have for this band is only exceeded by the amount of breakdowns collectively on the face down label. fck tghis band and the shit they took on both the hardcore and metal genre. fck.

8/7/2008 5:45:11 PM

8/7/2008 5:46:07 PM
wow another band that uses christianity as a marketing scheme. Good job guys keep telling your self God is Love, im sure you'll sell more cd's. Hail Satan. god flip

8/7/2008 5:47:35 PM
hey dude core, make sure that when youre rotting in hell that you tell the dudes from underneath the gun that god is not marketing.

8/7/2008 5:58:28 PM
Yes I hate god. I win.

8/7/2008 6:16:46 PM
Um, anyone's band playing with any independent band nowadays means jack shit. You can book these guys to play for free food in your backyard. Ferret is dead.

8/7/2008 6:54:52 PM
they get 2 tours not yet under their belt and already signed to Ferret? weird.

8/7/2008 7:08:53 PM
Why, Ferret? Why...

8/7/2008 7:48:43 PM
Ferret? Still indie? What? Last time I checked they were owned by a major. Score one for scenesters I guess.

8/7/2008 8:57:21 PM
these gays pray before they play...

8/7/2008 10:48:00 PM
how do you have a press release that is a fairly decent sized paragraph and say absolutely nothing

8/7/2008 11:54:19 PM

8/8/2008 12:19:17 AM
nice v neck shirts gays

8/8/2008 12:54:26 AM
They're barely going on their first real tour and already signed to ferret, and they're not even decent, they'll break up within a year if they even start touring full time

8/8/2008 1:18:09 AM
They had a song called "REPRESENT YOUR HOOD!" rich little white kids the closest hood these kids got to was the one on there American Apparel jackets .

8/8/2008 3:47:27 AM
seriously? does it really take a shit ton of myspace friends and plays to get signed these days? this is fcking bullshit.

8/8/2008 7:33:03 AM
nice kids, i bought them cigarettes the other day, they let me keep the change.

8/8/2008 9:39:11 AM
I suppose I'm too old to understand. This is embarrassing.

8/8/2008 10:05:59 AM
Ferret beat facedown records on signing the next horrible christian metalcore band.

8/8/2008 10:27:17 AM

8/8/2008 10:36:40 AM
likin what im hearing, fck you guys as usual x1000

8/8/2008 12:14:33 PM
so, the whole "they've been a band since they were 12" is a *SELLING POINT*?! what the fck.

8/8/2008 2:48:40 PM
age issues and lack of touring experience aside... they're awful.

8/8/2008 3:09:48 PM
Seriously... This is too much. These c-m guzzlers have to realize that they are raping every single generic gay trend and have zero creativity. Put down the c-ck, put down the guitar.

8/8/2008 11:23:16 PM
fck this shit

8/8/2008 11:52:05 PM
fck everything.

8/9/2008 4:26:04 AM
holla for bands doing things for God. Laughing at all the haters

8/9/2008 7:02:06 PM
Now if they were following every trend they would have to be "God free" like most everyone on this board. That's what deathcore bands are supposed to do right?? Props to them for doing something positive in that genre.

8/10/2008 12:14:17 AM
God is not real

8/10/2008 1:32:43 AM
Carl wears v-necks. so does Jesus.

8/10/2008 10:07:22 AM
The one logo looks like it says Underneath the Guy

8/11/2008 12:15:20 AM
kniferevenge 8/7/2008 3:08:37 PM Ferret sucks.They sign so many terrible bands. This coming from a person who said attack attack was worth seeing. van flip for attack attack

8/11/2008 8:27:33 PM
Facedown would avoid these tools like the plague. Worst shows ever = xIrvinex xVx-xNeckx songs Oh, not to mention that they are down with Josh TCIB and visa versa. Screw the music scene
