The 'Celebrity' album will be available through independent Redeye Distribution of Haw River, NC, on Whipped Cream Records, a partnership between Trevor Steel, John Holliday, and music industry veteran David Bean, owner of BeanBag1 Entertainment (BB1) in Monterey, California. BeanBag1 will oversee marketing and promotion, with the album scheduled to ship to Triple A / Rock radio during the last week in December for a national promotion campaign to begin January 2, 2012 led by BB1 subsidiary, Artist Airplay Advisors.
Whipped Cream Records will service press during the pre-release period by providing access to publicity photos and CDs for review. The Public Relations emphasis will include online media, with viral videos produced by the band introducing new songs, concert performances, and behind the scenes moments. The album's title track was recently leaked on YouTube as part of a Celebrity satire. The band will also utilize Facebook, Twitter, and their own website at http://theescapeclub.net for communicating with fans.
A solo press and radio station tour featuring live acoustic performances by Trevor Steel is expected in Los Angeles and New York for late April and early May.
Additional Press is planned in support of a summer U.S. tour for the full band following dates scheduled in Australia. Escape Club looks forward to performing again, as "Playing live was always one of our strengths," Trevor says, "All those years ago its what got us started in the London clubs and it's something we've missed very much."
