The North American retail release of the debut album, "1000 Tears from Australian," goth/metal band TEMUJIN has been set for May 13. The album will be distributed through the USA, Canada and Mexico by Koch Distribution. US tour dates are currently being set for later in 2008.
Following the 2007 self-published release of the debut album, "1000 Tears," Australian Goth/Metal band Temujin have signed with US independent label Renaissance Records for distribution of "1000 Tears" in the USA, Canada and Mexico. In support of the US retail release, discussions are under way for a proposed US tour later in 2008.
"This feels very much like a case of 'right place, right time' for us," says vocalist Kelly. "Renaissance are a true 'indie' label, a small but dynamic company. This is an opportunity for both the band and the label to grow together, and we're looking forward to it. Renaissance is showing faith in us, and we aim to reward that faith this year!"
Temujin are Kelly (vocals, keyboards) and Karl Lean (guitars, bass and drums). Formed in 2005, the band has focused on writing and recording throughout 2006, which culminated in the 2007 release of "1000 Tears." The band are determined to build on the foundations laid in 2007, and the deal with Renaissance kicks 2008 off with a major step forward.
