Ekotren Signs To Blind Prophecy Records

Independent metal label Blind Prophecy Records has signed melodic metal band EkoTren.

Originating in Cape Coral, FL in 2000, EkoTren is John Sheldon (vocals), Keith Finnell (guitars), Derek DeSantis (bass), Steve Chin (keyboard, backing vocals), and Eric Pottle (drums). In collaboration with renowned producer Paul Trust (Diecast, Endo), EkoTren polished up and pounded out their latest EP, 'Destroying the American Dream' in early 2007 and plan to return into Trust's clutches this October to record new material which will complete their full-length debut.

Under the vast wingspan of Blind Prophecy, EkoTren aims their reach toward the far corners of the earth, propelled by the label's freshly-inked distribution deals with the U.S., Canada, Japan, and Europe. "We're looking forward to building a strong foundation and a happy home at Blind Prophecy. We're anxious to take things to things to the next level and determined to succeed," says guitarist Keith Finnell.

In honor of the record deal, EkoTren will emerge on a victory lap of all-ages shows around southern Florida alongside Ozz-fest heroes Ankla (Bieler Bros. Records). EkoTren will officially seal the deal at their show at Martini's Rock Club in their hometown of Cape Coral, FL.

Aug. 31 - 7 p.m. Studio A - Miami, FL - 18 and up
Sep. 01 - 9 p.m. Gallery Billiards - Sarasota, FL - *ALL AGES*
Sep. 02 - 7 p.m. Martini's Rock Club - Cape Coral, FL - *ALL AGES*
