Former Eighteen Visions frontman James Hart has officially signed with Island Records. Hart has issued the following:

"After just a few short months of writing and recording some demo tracks, I have officially signed a record deal with Island/Def Jam. I never really thought things would happen so quickly for me. I am looking forward to working with everyone at Island on my upcoming album which I will start production on sometime in October. Thanks again to everyone involved for giving me this opportunity and thank you to all of my fans who have followed me here! I appreciate each and every one of you."

10/1/2007 10:43:22 PM
fcking why? i was so happy they were gone

10/1/2007 10:56:48 PM
if ICP was really on their label, i can see why they dropped them. but it doesn't excuse them from being an extreme shitty label to shitty music. James Hart is a hypocrite.

10/1/2007 11:07:35 PM
You guys just don't understand what he is going for.

10/1/2007 11:08:01 PM
what a fcking homo, for putting this shit up on here about himself, i really hope he get aids from blowing the singer of papa roach

10/1/2007 11:23:13 PM

10/1/2007 11:29:18 PM
wow what a gay.

10/1/2007 11:38:12 PM
i wonder how long it will take for this dude to break edge and start living the "rock n roll lifestyle"

10/1/2007 11:48:29 PM
this will soon be the anthem of hot topic high school girls around the world!

10/2/2007 12:04:45 AM
finally someone realizes his immense talents

10/2/2007 12:09:46 AM
island put out u2 and the cranberries, and icp and now this...

10/2/2007 12:27:35 AM
looks like someone sucked some fall out boy dck! :-*

10/2/2007 12:59:24 AM
His solo songs suck supreme c-ck. Even worse than that last 18v record.

10/2/2007 1:36:08 AM
Can't wait for this shit to crash and burn.

10/2/2007 1:48:18 AM
to phrase this in a politically correct manner, what a gaybot 3000.

10/2/2007 2:25:31 AM
this will be hilariously awful.

10/2/2007 4:17:16 AM
lol @ comments

10/2/2007 5:53:55 AM
Criticisms aside, does anyone else just find this really weird? Compare this news to 18V about six or seven years ago, it's pretty bizarre.

10/2/2007 7:17:38 AM
It's going to be really hard for him to join Stone Temple Pilots now that he's commited to Island....

10/2/2007 7:53:21 AM
what? how... im pretty sure this dude doesnt play anything... how can he get signed? so fcked up theres a bunch of bands that are good but get no where and this dude sings like a gay and gets signed without a band? WTF

10/2/2007 9:09:23 AM
I wonder if his album will be titled "james hart" I figured Trustkill or Victory would sign his garbage but not island...wow.

10/2/2007 10:03:00 AM
I agree with Mattapooh.. very very strange if you think back a few years ago and what 18v were doing, compared to this. Actually hasn't it been exactly 7 years now since Until the Ink Runs Out was released?

10/2/2007 10:06:16 AM

10/2/2007 12:28:41 PM

10/2/2007 1:06:35 PM
if its like obsession it will be a decent radio rock album. something to put on at parties to get chicks ready to bone.

10/2/2007 4:42:08 PM
booo hooo, someone grew up and out of hardcore.. something you all should try.

10/2/2007 6:11:36 PM
Just fcking gross.

10/2/2007 6:12:49 PM
...btw, you can grow out of hardcore, but it's atavistic to get all emo after that.

10/2/2007 6:43:14 PM
18 roaches, i mean papa visions, i mean god damn it

10/2/2007 7:10:10 PM
enough_to_stop_a_heart 10/2/2007 4:42:08 PM booo hooo, someone grew up and out of hardcore.. something you all should try. ...And you post on Lambgoat?

10/3/2007 6:03:35 AM
I cant beleive how shitty this dudes material is. Listen to Dirty Little girl on his myspace. I actually caught myself scraping my wrist with a rusty razorblade while that played.

10/3/2007 4:18:16 PM
as long as it has breakdowns you can count me in

10/3/2007 4:19:54 PM
dont worry after the guy s album dosnt sell he ll get dropped and he can go back to gbs and doing hair

10/3/2007 11:11:59 PM
I quickly clicked 'Post Comments' before I could even look at the other ones because I knew they'd trash this news far more than what's necessary. All I have to say is, "How can anyone take you seriously after that blacklight skeleton video?".

10/4/2007 2:14:51 AM
papa roach look-alike motherfcker.

10/4/2007 9:02:22 PM
totally lame. totally unfair. total garbage. it's cool, he'll get a decent advance on his album, it will suck, his tours will fail, either as headliner or support, he will be dropped. it'll all be over someday soon kids.
