New York, NY (PRWEB) June 26, 2008
New pop sensation The New Surreal has signed to Sunset Records and is expected to release their debut album later this summer on Tuesday, August 19th.
"Signing a record contract with Sunset Records is truly everything we wanted for the band," states Danny Chait of The New Surreal. "We have been wanting to be a part of Sunset Records since the main label was announced starting up at this time last year, and I have been impressed with the new music signed by Don Lichterman. I am excited and humbled to be a part of this label group. I'm really impressed how the label works with new artists."
Don Lichterman, the main A&R person at Sunset and the chief executive and founder of the Sunset Label Group, adds, "It only took a few seconds for me to realize we had something special with these guys. This band is the quintessential pop act, and has a gifted singer that can write amazing songs which will instantly win over huge audiences at radio and when they play live shows." Continues Lichterman, "Danny went back to the studio finished the mixes and then he mastered The New Surreal CD and we expect to do very well with this music for the last half of this year; this band gives the label what we have been trying to find for a couple years. There is no doubt The New Surreal has a great future ahead of them in this industry."
Don Lichterman then comments, "The New Surreal has already won me over and we have already allowed some regions of the world to stream their new music. The response has overwhelming enough for me to add this to an end of the summer street date. They are a group of young, talented singer songwriters with amazing vocals and a sound that currently has wide appeal and great accessibility on every song on the CD. We're over the top thrilled to have them be a part of the Sunset future and to have joined our artist roster this week."
The New Surreal are now all three based in New York City and will work closely with Don Lichterman at the Sunset Records label with artist development efforts for the band. The trio consists of Danny Chait - Guitar and Vocals, Ross Wilson - Bass, and Nick Smeraski - Drums. The band began when they met going to school at NYU (New York University).
The self titled CD by The New Surreal will be released on August 19th. Sunset will start working the music to radio and to press after the July 4th holiday. "I am psyched to have something this easy to work for the rest of the year," Lichterman says about the songs on the debut CD. Sunset will work the music to AAA, AC and CHR / Pop format stations all over the world. The self titled debut album will be made available at top retail outlets like Target, FYE, Circuit City, Virgin Megastores, Barnes & Noble and thousands of independent stores.
