Bad Timing Records was never started with the intent of being a label that did only reissues of previously released albums–but it took us a while to find a young, new band that we really wanted to work with. We’re now extremely excited, and anxious, for you all to finally get acquainted with a band that we’ve fallen in love with: Future Crooks (Twitter, Facebook).
The San Diego band is our first true signing, and we’ll be releasing their debut LP, Future Crooks In Paradise, on October 7 on digital and 12” vinyl formats. That’ll be BTR-010, if anyone’s still keeping count. The band is fronted by Mike Rogers, who channels a bit of Say Anything’s Max Bemis in the snarky way he delivers his lyrics, and features Weatherbox frontman Brian Warren on guitar.
AbsolutePunk is hosting the announcement today with a teaser clip from the album, the artwork and track listing–check it all out here.
On Tuesday, September 9 (next week!) we’ll premiere the first song from the album (it’s called “The Blues”). We’ll also have pre-orders up for the vinyl, which is limited to 500 units (300 Black with Fire Splatter and 200 Coke Bottle Clear). Until then, we hope you dig that teaser.
This is a new step in the journey for Bad Timing Records, and we hope you’ll show as much enthusiasm to Future Crooks as you have all shown us over the past year.
