Prosthetic Records signs Junius

Tuesday, March 08, 2011 4:07 PM PT

Official press release:

Prosthetic Records is proud to announce the signing of Boston's Junius, described by Rolling Stone as, "a perfect hybrid of Neurosis and the Smiths." The band, formed in 2003, has previously released material on Radar Recordings and The Mylene Sheath, amongst others and will begin work on their third full-length this spring. Junius has an extensive touring history in North America and Europe, and has shared stages with the likes of Mastodon, Bad Religion, Valient Thorr, Howl, Orbs, Rosetta, Tombs, God Is An Astronaut, Irepress and many others. The band will be appearing at Austin's South By Southwest Festival next week, and have April dates in Europe.

The band commented: "We've been excited about working with Prosthetic since meeting most of the guys in LA on tour last year. We're grateful that we seem to have good luck in finding people who are equally passionate, motivated and most importantly, believe in what we're doing enough to commit their time and effort to allow us to continue doing what we love to do. We're definitely looking forward to some very exciting and interesting years ahead!"

I love this band, but this is just fcking weird/makes no sense. I was expecting them to sign to a 'different' ,for lack of a better term, label.

Prosthetic seems to be trying to distance themselves form bad metalcore lately.

Tax write off signing. Expect more of these in the next 4-5 weeks. Also never heard of the Smiths, judging by this press release they're probably some today is the day knockoff.
