Wednesday, November 01, 2006 1:09 AM PT


Victory Records has officially signed a deal with Chicago's 1997. The five piece folk-emo quintet formed in October 2005 and according to Victory owner Tony Brummel, they "are comprised of the same underground rock chromosomes that are part and parcel of the root system that constitutes the overall DNA of the Victory Family Tree."

Additionally, the band features the alternating lead vocals of husband and wife team Kerri and Caleb Pepp. You can check out a few tracks at their MySpace page.

Instead of signing a band named 1997, maybe they shouls sign a band that sounds more like the year 1997

1997 is the landmark year, after which victory never put out another good release

To steveh, yeah it isn't generic metalcore, just generic EMO. Folk emo? What the fck? Folk is like banjo's and trashcan hobo music, isn't it? I got it! Hobo's are sad, and so are EMO's, We'll call it HOBOcore.
