Fashion Bomb Talks About Signing To Full Effect Records

Chicago-based, Industrial Metallers FASHION BOMB, recently sat down with Live-Metal.Net's Jason Price to discuss Fashion Bomb's history, their recent signing to Full Effect Records, their powerful live performances, working with Fear Factory's Raymond Herrera on their next album and what is in store for the band in the coming months.

On Fashion Bomb's Signing To Full Effect Records:

Live-Metal.Net: Fashion Bomb has recently signed with Full Effect Records and will be re-releasing Devils to Some, Angels to Others, in September of 2008. How has you experience with the label been so far?

Val (vocals, programming): Outstanding! They are a like-minded label. In the past, we have worked with some other labels including really large labels. We are really happy to be with Full Effect because the label really has a mindset that harkens back to the old days of Wax Trax and being a Chicago band that is something that is deeply ingrained as a part of our history. Wax Trax was really artists running labels to help other artists and building a community of mutual assistance and support. Really when you are going into a meeting with the label, you know that they are artists and not just some guy in a suit who just has a balance sheet out. While certainly that is a big part of this business these days, when you are primarily looking at it as art rather than business, you are ultimately going to have more success as an artist and make more of a connection with your audience. So that is why we are really pleased with the label right now. It doesn't hurt that they have major distribution and a good business plan as well! [laughs]

On Touring and Their Upcoming Work With Fear Factory's Raymond Herrera:

Live-Metal.Net: Are you currently working on a followup to "Angels To Some, Devils To Others?"

Acid (guitar): Definitely! We are spending the bulk of our time right now, while everything is gearing up for the re-release, working on that. We have been holed up in the studio just writing and writing and writing and banging out some new stuff.

Live-Metal.Net: When can we look forward to hearing some touring plans from you? Is that in the cards right now?

Val: It is. The focus is going to be on the new album. We are going to be heading out to Los Angeles in the next couple months and we will be delivering a new album to our label by the end of the year. We are going to be working with Raymond Herrera of Fear Factory out there to produce the new album. We are definitely going to be out there working hard on that. That is pretty much going to be our short term goal but after the new year we will definitely be touring around to a city near you. The tour should be fairly extensive.

Fashion Bomb recently signed a deal with Full Effect Records and will have their debut album "Devils to Some, Angels to Others" re-released in September 2008. The re-release will feature a bonus remix of "Low" by Asrock of Final Cut in September. Based in Detroit and Los Angeles, Full Effect features such bands as Faster Pussycat and Final Cut, and has worldwide distribution through Sony/Red and Code7.
