Official Press Release:
Swimming With Sharks Records is proud to announce the signing of Laconic from Phoenix, Arizona. The band’s latest album, ‘For The Life Of One’, was recently recorded by notable producer, Ben Schigel (Chimaira , Drowning Pool, Breaking Benjamin). Fans of Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying, Five Finger Death Punch, and All That Remains will immediately identify with the band’s melodic metal approach.
Frontman, Danny Brian states: “We are beyond excited for what the future brings with our partnership with Swimming With Sharks Records. The label owner, Noah Robertson, is an extremely hard working and passionate individual, and that is hard to find in the industry these days. Our fans and us know that this has been a long time coming. We’ve been waiting for the right move and to work with the right people before we just settled. We couldn’t be happier to be part of the SWS family, and we look forward to seeing everyone out on the road and beyond!”
Swimming With Sharks Records founder, Noah “Shark” Robertson states: “Laconic is truly an amazing band and their music deserves to be heard by the masses. From the moment I discovered this band, I haven’t been able to stop listening. We couldn’t be happier to add such a talented band to our artist roster. Soon, the world will know the name, Laconic!”
Laconic stormed onto the underground metal scene with their release ‘Visions’ in 2009, receiving rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Since then, the band has built a name for themselves through word-of-mouth on-line and persistent gigging and touring.
The band is set to release their debut music video for the song, “Bridge Burner”, very soon and have a number of live performances lined up including a direct support slot for The Devil Wears Prada, June 27th at Top Deck in Farmington, New Mexico.
