Freeway Entertainment's legendary Russ Regan and Kent Jacobs sign first alternative rock band 'Abused Romance' to debut their new label Freeway Records.

We are a close group of four brothers that are very passionate about our music and we give our all - on stage, off stage, from writing songs to rehearsing - to this project and its purpose.

Alternative rock band Abused Romance is the first announced band signed to new label Freeway Records, a division of Freeway Entertainment, which was formed by legendary Russ Regan (former president of Universal Records, 20th Century Records, selling over a billion records) and general partner Kent Jacobs (Police, Kiss, Prince, REM) in August of 2009. Abused Romance is their first band to be signed to their new label.

Abused Romance was discovered by Regan and Jacobs in July of 2009 and instantly scored management with Velocity Entertainment INC and a distribution deal with Bungalo/Universal Music Group Distribution. The alternative rock band features Meir Yaniv (Vocals, Guitar), Amit Ofir (Guitar, Backing Vocals), Roy Chen (Drums) and Aetam Jakob (Bass).

"Russ and I felt that this band had the skills to launch the label. What I love about Abused Romance is their strong musicianship and the fact that they all have the killer instinct. Amit Ofir (Guitar) and Meir Yaniv (Vocal, Guitar) have great co producing skills and their writing abilities are superstar quality!" stated Jacobs.

The bands vision is to continue to be a driving force in the music industry, to touch as many hearts and souls across the world with high-end quality music, influencing music and modern sound. Their fans often compare their music to such bands as Incubus, Linkin Park, 30 Seconds to Mars and Nickelback.

"We are a close group of four brothers that are very passionate about our music and we give our all - on stage, off stage, from writing songs to rehearsing - to this project and its purpose." states Amit Ofir.

The band is currently at NRG Recording Studios in Los Angeles, working with producer Justin Gray (sold more than 20 million records world-wide. working with artists such as Joss Stone, INXS members and many more). Gray is also recording and mixing the band's debut album. The album will be released early 2010, along with a video for their single "Hit and Run".

With the band's hit songs, writing abilities, dedication, heart and commitment combined with the strongest management team- Russ Regan and Kent Jacobs, the multi platinum selling producer - Justin Gray and the largest distribution record company in the world today - Bungalo/Universal Music Group, it is exciting to say that 2010 is the breakthrough year for Abused Romance across the world.

Background on Freeway Entertainment:

The formation of Freeway Entertainment began with the brain storming session between Kent Jacobs, Russ Regan and Meir Yaniv. Freeway Entertainment was just established in August 2009.

"The reason why we started the label between all of us, was that we have all the tools to win, it's so simple," states Regan.

The priority goal for Freeway Entertainment is to be one of the leading forces in the Entertainment business. Their long-term plan is to find other musical acts, like Abused Romance, that want to make a positive mark on the youth today.
