THE BAND TO ENTER STUDIO MAY 3RD TO BEGIN RECORDING NEW ALBUM
Razor & Tie is excited to officially announce the signing of The Graduate, an atmospheric rock band based out of Chicago. The band will begin recording a new album May 3rd and are looking forward to begin working once again with producer Brian McTernan, who produced several of the tracks that resulted in their signing.
Previously signed to Icon MES Records, The Graduate have released the independent EP Horror Show, as well as the Icon MES released EP Evergreen and full length album Anhedonia. When Icon MES folded in late 2008, the band took it upon themselves to continue their busy touring schedule while looking for a new place to call their home. The band already had fans at Razor & Tie who were determined not to let The Graduate slip away, as the label saw extreme talent and potential in the band. Lead singer Corey Warning expressed the band’s feelings when he said, “We were looking for someone who gets us and will put us out the right way. We’re excited about how excited everyone at Razor & Tie is to begin working together.”
The Graduate enter the studio today in Baltimore to begin recording their Razor & Tie debut. The album is being produced by Brian McTernan who has previously worked with Thrice, Circa Survive, Cave In, and Senses Fail amongst others. The band is looking forward to being back in the studio to record and bring this album to fruition. All of the band members contribute to the writing process and have already completed writing the currently untitled new album, tentatively scheduled for a fall release.
Formed in 2005, The Graduate is Tim Moore (drums), Corey Warning (vocals), Matt Kennedy (guitar/keys), Max Sauer (guitar), and Jared Wustenberg (bass). Through constant touring, playing close to 400 shows in a two year period, including rock festivals Lollapalooza, The Warped Tour, Bamboozle, and German rock festival Rock am See, the band has created a solid following.
