Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) July 29, 2004
Southern California's Halifax has signed to Drive-Thru Records. On Sunday, July 25th, lead singer of Halifax, Michael Hunau, officially announced on stage at their gig opening for Less than Jake at The Intersection in Michigan, their signing to Drive-Thru Records.
Backstage after Halifax's frenzied set, Hunau said "This weekend is one of those weekends I'll remember for the rest of my life. On Friday, Richard & Stefanie, co-owners of Drive-Thru Records, came to see us play the Main Stage at Hellfest in New Jersey, opening for the Ataris, Misfits, Sick of it All and Shadows Falls. After our set we spoke and made the final decision to sign our pending offer from Drive-Thru and that they were the right home for us. Tonight (Michigan's show) was the most amazing show for us, announcing on stage that we had just signed with Drive-Thru Records and looking out into the sea of thousands of kids and just seeing them cheering and going crazy."
Drive-Thru Records, who's distribution deal with Geffen Records expires on July 31st, will be announcing their new distributors in the near future. Kevin Donlon, bassist of Halifax, is "Confident that whoever Drive-Thru chooses for their new distributor, whether major or indie, is no matter what, the right home for us. We've been friends with Richard, Stefanie, and most of the Drive-Thru bands for a long time now, and it just feels right to be there."
Halifax is currently touring in support of their EP, "A Writer's Reference" on No Milk Records, which is available on tour, at halifaxrock.com, and various mom & pop record stores. There are plans to have the EP re-released with new artwork and to remain on No Milk Records, but distributed by Drive-Thru Records.
This summer's touring plans for Halifax include their current tour with Victory Records recording artist Spitalfield, followed by a 2 1/2 week stint on Warped tour, and wraps up with a tour with Rufio. When September comes Halifax will start writing and pre-production for their debut full length on Drive-Thru Records. The band plans on starting recording late this Fall for a Spring 2005 release.
