We now have the opportunity to get the music out there and distributed in a big way. We have avenues that a lot of other indie artists don't. Basically, we get to bring the Phunk to the masses.

DMAFT Records announce the release "Hydro Phonic" from rock fusion pioneers, the Phunk Junkeez. "Hydro Phonic" is slated to hit store shelves on September 25. Arizona's hometown heroes -- known for fusing punk, funk and rock music styles are releasing their sixth and strongest album to date. The 1st single and club anthem, "I n The Summertime" is in active rotation nationwide at Radio. The track "Join In" is the featured track in the Kicker Audio speaker displays in Circuit City nationwide.
The Phunk Junkeez rabid fan base has supported them throughout 15 years of touring worldwide, playing shows with bands like No Doubt, 311, Green Day and the Kottonmouth Kings to packed venues. Staying actively involved with their fans via the Internet and tour events, selling over 200,000 units and with more than 20 film (Harold & Kumar go to White Castle, Tommy Boy, Disturbing Behavior) and videogame sync placements to their credit, the Junkeez have kept their unique brand of Phunk burning bright. Their new venture with DMAFT Records has everyone involved excited about the upcoming release.
"I am extremely excited to first welcome the Phunk Junkeez to the DMAFT Records family," says DMAFT President Carl Caprioglio. "Everyone here at DMAFT and at Fontana/Universal loves the energy and musical style that the Phunk Junkeez produce. They are one of the hardest working and most motivated bands I have encountered. The Junkeez aren't sitting at home waiting for things to happen, they are out with the fans making an impact."
"The Phunk Junkeez are really stoked about the new relationship with DMAFT Records and Fontana/Universal Distribution," vocalist Soulman says. "We now have the opportunity to get the music out there and distributed in a big way. We have avenues that a lot of other indie artists don't. Basically, we get to bring the Phunk to the masses."
A full North American tour is planned for the fall when they return from their August Japan tour in support of "Hydro Phonic."
