Philadelphia's All Else Failed have officially signed with Thorp Records. Formed in 1995, the band has previously released albums with Now Or Never Records and Abacus Recordings. This spring the group will enter the studio with Nick Rotundo (Boy Sets Fire) to record five new songs. Those songs, in addition to a handful of out-of-print and unreleased tracks, will comprise their Thorp debut, entitled "Good Enough For The Girls We Roll With."

As part of the new ownership deal between Now Or Never Records and the Century Family (parent company of Century Media Records), All Else Failed has been added to the roster of Century imprint Abacus Recordings. The group's new full-length, entitled "This Never Happened," will hit stores this summer.
Since announcing their impending break-up last February, Pennsylvania's All Else Failed has ultimately had a change of heart and will be releasing a new record later this year. Here's a portion of a statement from the band:
"We thought for a long time about packing it in. But what else would we do? We originally decided to start a new band, kill AEF and move on in a new direction, and for that matter we did. We started writing new songs and trying out drummers, not for AEF but this new project. That went on for a while, a long while, and then we decided that there was still some gas left in the tank."
The group will be in the studio next month recording roughly fifteen songs for a full-length, which will hit stores this summer via an unspecified label (their most recent label, Now Or Never Records, was recently purchased by Century Media Records).
