Official press release:

Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce and co-manager Kyle Borman are proud to announce the launch of KBB Records and the signing of the label's first act, Scare Don't Fear.

"After years of planning, touring, writing and learning, and after ups and downs, arguments and agreements, I have grown to not only love the music industry, but understand it and respect it," says co-founder Ben Bruce. "KBB Records is a label run by artists, for artists. With my love and passion for music along with my knowledge and understanding of the music industry it's our goal to work alongside incredible artists of all genres and to create and release amazing music for the world to fall in love with."

The first band signed to the new label is Scare Don't Fear, a Providence, RI-based fusion of hip-hop and metal.

The band comments: "Everyone in Scare Don't Fear is extremely proud to be a part of KBB Records. SDF are huge fans of Asking Alexandria, so when Ben and Kyle approached us about teaming up, we were stoked. We have been working at this goal for over five years and it's a very rewarding feeling to not only get signed, but to get signed to a label that has such an amazing team behind it. All of us are looking forward to building towards the future with KBB Records."

These guys were reviewed in front of an audience at a conference and the reviewer's quote was "It reminds me of the soundtrack to a frat boy raping."

In 2012 when AA sold $70 million in merch the rcord label gave them one million to split. Now they want to do the same thing to other bands. I get it.

For all the supposed time spent going back and forth and the planning this label, that KBB logo is the shittiest thing I've seen. If I saw that, I wouldn't want anything to do with that label. It they won't even take the time to conjure up a decent image, I couldn't see them putting the TLC into my shit rapcore band.
