Relapse Records signs Genghis Tron

Thursday, February 08, 2007 10:19 AM PT


Relapse Records has officially announced the signing of avant-garde rock extremists Genghis Tron.

Upon signing, Genghis Tron commented: "We're incredibly excited to be joining the Relapse family. The three of us have been huge fans of the label since the dawn of time and we can't wait to work with them on our future releases."

The new Philadelphia transplants (Mookie Singerman, Michael Sochynsky, and Hamilton Jordan, Jr.) released the full-length "Dead Mountain Mouth" last year with Crucial Blast Records and are currently writing the follow-up and Relapse debut. “We're currently building a bold, psychedelic bridge to Godcity studios where we'll be recording our next album in August with Kurt Ballou." comments the band. "Thanks to some serious unemployment we've been fully immersed in erecting said bridge--working 8 hours or more a day, seven days a week on new material. It's sounding insane and awesome and entirely indescribable. We're stoked."

The band's latest material can be heard via the band Myspace page.

shit band, fcking douchebags.

2/9/2007 2:40:20 AM
Figured. I do not like their crucial blast record at all, the first mini was awesome. Just a bunch of posers that wanted to attrackt attention with the mini and then go soft on a CD to sign with a cool label.

2/9/2007 4:42:36 AM
Errr....Groovy

2/9/2007 6:47:19 AM
I liked the first record better, but they're still cool in my book. The next CD should be just as interesting.

2/9/2007 8:59:19 AM
yay! relapse signs genghis tron to initiate scenester ploy!

2/9/2007 9:09:56 AM
