Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) October 24, 2006
Emerging, upstart, indie-rock label MoRisen Records’ newest band The Sammies have catapulted into the national music scene with their self-titled debut album behind the strength of their catchy single “Trainwreck.”
The Sammies have garnered critical acclaim from all over the world, and it’s justified. 2 of their songs, “Postman” and “Trainwreck” are featured in the new Dane Cook / Jessica Simpson movie “Employee of the Month.” Additionally, The Sammies will have “Coming Out Wild” on the soundtrack for this movie. In one of the most read indie-rock blogs about SXSW on the web, Matt Dentler from Indie Wire said about The Sammies debut record -- “I can’t recall a better debut rock record to come our way in 2006. Get to this album before your kid brother does.” The Sammies recently debuted at #125 on the CMJ Music Charts -- the highest debut for any MoRisen Records artist to date, and they were at #4 on the CMJ Radio Select Charts for the week of September 24th.
The Sammies are fresh off their recent tour with San Francisco buzz band Birdmonster and will be playing the MoRisen Records CMJ Showcase on Thursday, November 2nd in New York. This event follows with another West Coast performance at the Pomona Colleges in Southern California on November 10th, where The Sammies are headlined on the Teton Gravity Research nationwide tour, promoting Teton’s new movie titled Anomaly.
MoRisen Records has emerged as on of the premier indie-rock labels in North Carolina, the Southeast, and even the country cultivating home-grown talent and creating great opportunities for its talent heavy roster.
