The Kindred (aka Today I Caught The Plague) just inked a deal with the legendary Sumerian Records. Not too shabby. The Ontario band plans to have their debut (or is it?) out this Fall with the help of John Paul Peters (also responsible for Comeback Kid, Propaghandi, and Jesus). They just dropped the first single “Decades” as a taste of what’s to come. Check it below along with vocalist David Journeaux’s statement on the signing. Also may have included a Today I Caught The Plague track or two…
“I remember when we were writing material for our independent full-length, LORE, having multiple conversations about Sumerian Records as a label, and how well they seemed to work with their bands. Those conversations always ended with some variation of the statement ‘it would be great if we could get ourselves onto their roster’. Knowing this, you can imagine how we felt when we first heard from the label.
From that initial correspondence forward, we only had the best experiences in dealing with the people at Sumerian and we’re quite excited to move forward with everything that’s to come. As a group, we’ve always been really proud of what we’ve been able to achieve for ourselves, but now, with the support of an entity like Sumerian, we seem to be closer and closer to realizing some of the bigger goals that we’ve always had for ourselves.”
