7th Son Signs To Roadrunner Records

Roadrunner Records is pleased to announce the signing of Las Vegas rock band 7th Son to the roster.

7th Son are composed of guitarist/vocalist Christopher Babbitt, guitarist Mikey Cross, bassist Andrew Cushing and drummer Alan Doucette. They formed the band two years ago in their native Sin City. The band recorded three songs with producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette (Incubus, Escape the Fate, Story of the Year) earlier this year. Those songs caught the attention of Roadrunner Senior VP of A&R Monte Conner, who signed the band.

Of their signing to Roadrunner, Babbitt said, "Our battle cry since we started playing dives in dirty Vegas to being nobodies signed to the biggest hard rock label in the world has been 'Be shred or be dead,' so we have a lot to live up to and Roadrunner was the only label we knew who would have the balls and the vision to stand behind that credo." Cross has a more tongue in cheek outlook on their new label home, saying, "We can't wait to meet some of our esteemed new label-mates and sleep with their girlfriends." Lock up your daughters, girlfriends and wives, because 7th Son have arrived!

7th Son are currently recording their Roadrunner debut in Virginia Beach, Virginia, with Baskette manning the boards. They will commence recording in mid-November. The band is managed by Dark Angel Management, LLC (Trivium, Seemless, Dirge). For a taste of 7th Son, check out their MySpace page.
