LOSTCITY INDUSTRIES, Founded by Luc Verville ( ex-A Perfect Murder & current guitarist for Aces & Eights ) and Carl Bouchard ( Guitarist for A Perfect Murder/Final Word ) have announced the addition of TEARS FROM THE SKY to its roster.
The Montreal based act TEARS FROM THE SKY just signed an exclusive contract with LOSTCITY INDUSTRIES to release their crushing new album, BOREDOMVILLE. The band plays a purely straight forward hard brand of metal and their new album will officially drop on May 8, 2007.
According to the label, "With a unique sound that is often reminiscent of metal legends such as IN FLAMES & IRON MAIDEN, the band will undoubtedly convince you with their integrity and passion, that they have been relentlessly upholding for the last 8 years of existence, that they belong on the same playing field as any of today's premier metal acts."
TEARS FROM THE SKY will be playing all week-ends from Mid-may until the end of June before going out on a full tour in support of BOREDOMVILLE this summer.
