Eden Music PR and Velocity Recordings Collaboration.
Eden Music PR has been looking after some of the best up and coming acts for the last year including Attention Thieves, The Neon Mile, Screamaballerina, Terence Mas, Amys Ghost and Dylan.
2011 sees Eden team up with Velocity Recordings who have signed up several Eden artists for single/album release deals.
Velocity Recordings/Eden's first release will be Let it All Out by Attention Thieves who have been signed to Velocity for a multiple single deal and will be releasing this eagerly anticipated track in February. Full details coming soon...
Attention Thieves recorded the single with producer Dave Chang and the track has so far been hailed as 'a coming of age' and 'their best work yet'. The band will perform the track live for Total Rock Radio at the request of tastemaker Katie P (Kerrang! XFM, Total Rock) on the 10th February.
" We are very excited to be working with Eden and Velocity Recordings this coming year. Velocity is a well respected label that we believe releases good quality material by bands that are clearly very hard working and committed and so releasing music under the label is definitely something we are very much looking forward to, added to that the expertise of our management at Eden, we have high hopes for the future" - Attention Thieves
ABOUT EDEN MUSIC PR
"It's been a mad few months for Reading girl Lu Garcia. Her management/publicity outfit Eden Music PR was born in Reading last year and has been described as 'a truly 100% DIY project that's so good it's taking on the big boys'. Now we hear Eden Music PR has teamed up with Velocity Recordings and they'll be releasing music together. In a time of dwindling record sales and bland, unexciting music this is one dream team collaboration we wouldn't miss for the world - The Fly."
Lu Garcia from Eden Music PR said 'I am really honoured to be working with Sid/Velocity. We're so fired up about the tracks Velocity will be releasing over the next few months. The last few years have almost seen a revolution in music, with established acts performing poorly in sales, and relative newcomers like Kings of Leon and Arcade Fire taking the charts by storm. Now, we're about to see the 'lil Eden roster battle for control of the musical landscape. Exciting times!'
ABOUT VELOCITY RECORDINGS
"Velocity Recordings are hungry for new sounds and mad bastards rather than old B-sides and dull guitar drones. It's a new concept in indie. It could catch on - NME"
Sid Siddle from Velocity Recordings said "Makes complete sense to start working closely with Lu and Eden, her abilities at PR are second to none.
I guess I have experience of releasing records and making things happen and open doors for bands. Although we are both based in Reading, we are looking at a lot further, yes the world. Eden has a great roster which helps.
As long as you have a truly great song and a very proactive attitude then anything is possible."
Velocity Recordings is a label but it has a huge, passionate pumping heart.
A record label that has always put out great music, and will always put out great music.
Velocity Recordings have not released a bad record and they're are not going to start now.
Out of sheer boredom and frustration the record label Velocity was born in late 2000.
They released debut single Blisters by SugarComa to widespread acclaim including single of the week in Kerrang! and Melody Maker the same week, rave reviews in Terrorizer and Music Week and world wide radio play. SugaComa moved to Zomba/Music for Nations.
Over the years Velocity have also released music by such luminaries as The Sunset Sound (now Pure Reason Revolution signed to Sony for their debut album, now on EMI), Midi Midis (BMG publishing), YumiYumi (The Go! Team), and local Reading bands such as Heartwear Process, Sixty Watt Bayonets and Hello Wembley.
