Early Man Signs To The End Records

THE END RECORDS has signed Brooklyn-based trio EARLY MAN. The band (and duo at the time) won critical praise in 2005 with the release of their debut album "Closing In," a fully charged heavy metal machine with a gungho attitude and punk sensibility. The album spawned the successful single "Death is the Answer" and the video saw regular rotation on MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball.

About the signing, singer/guitarist Mike Conte comments, "We're excited. THE END has a no frills, no bullshit approach. They're dedicated to putting out good heavy music. I liked the whole set up right from the start. I mean, from the first time we walked into their offices I was impressed. We saw a bunch of people running around busting their asses in a fucking warehouse in Bushwick, Brooklyn. That's attractive to me. It's also great because this way when Manhattan gets nuked, which with any luck should be any day now, we'll still have a label! But seriously, their focus seems to be on getting our music out to the people, plain and simple. Their method is smart and somewhat unique. We're very much looking forward to working with them"

Mike Bigel from THE END says, “We are beyond excited to add EARLY MAN to THE END’s roster. Everybody at the label has been fan of the band since the beginning; now being in the position to take them to the next level and get them the recognition they deserve is killer! Expect great things to come out of this relationship formed in the pits of hell!”
