New Independent UK Rock Label Launched

First wave of roster signings revealed:
Black Art, FOES, I Cried Wolf and V / Vega

New independent UK-based rock record label Crooked Noise Records are pleased to announce their launch today as the first wave of signings to the roster are revealed. The label will be releasing a free download compilation EP on 26th May 2015 featuring a track from each of the artists.

The Cambridge-based imprint was founded by Tom Newman, who comments: “Crooked Noise Records was created out of a passion for truly independent music and helping to build sustainable careers for artists who aren’t afraid to put in the graft. Our first wave of bands is so diverse yet, to me, makes complete sense as we all share the same common set of values and goals. All four bands have killer releases dropping in 2015, so keep ‘em peeled!”

Amongst the first wave of bands to be announced on the CNR roster are Gloucester hard-punks BLACK ART, Merseyside alt-rock outfit F O E S, Banbury metallers I Cried Wolf and ambient alternative quartet V / V E G A from Bedfordshire.

Joe Kibble, Black Art comments: “We are well chuffed to have signed our first record deal with Crooked Noise, an independent label who have entrusted us to make a number of rock songs for your enjoyment. We are made up to be working with an indie label who are giving us their time and money so we can carry on sitting in a dark room writing songs about Satan.”

Joe Danher, F O E S comments: “We’ve been sat on these songs for the best part of a year, so we’re really glad to have teamed up with Crooked Noise for this release. The writing and recording process for these five tracks really helped us develop and refine our sound. It’s the culmination of a lot of hard work.”

Jim Dummer, V / V E G A comments: “This is an absolute milestone announcement for this band and we couldn’t be happier to work with a truly independent record label who share the same vision as us. This is only the start; what we have to come is going to go hard!”

Harry Davies, I Cried Wolf comments: “We are absolutely stoked to sign with Crooked Noise! ‘Hollow Heart’, our new release, is exactly what this band is about – it sums up all of the hopes, dreams, and fears that we share as a band and will give you an insight into the sounds we all love.”

More information on forthcoming releases TBA.
