At the Skylines Sign With Roadrunner Records

facebook.com

Roadrunner Records announced today the signing of Southern California-based At the Skylines to the label’s roster. With a new home at Roadrunner, the six-piece, which features a potent dual guitar and dual vocal attack, has settled into the process of writing its debut album.

The band is recording in Sweden with Fredrik Nordstrom, whose resume is filled with names like At the Gates, Bring Me the Horizon, In Flames and Dimmu Borgir. The band will also spend November on tour as part of the To Write Love on Her Arms Presents: The Children Of Fire Tour, featuring Oh, Sleeper, Greeley Estates, Ten After Two and Secrets.

At the Skylines, featuring vocalists Chris Shelley and Mark Barela, guitarists Shawn Yates and Billy Barber, bassist Tim Trad and drummer David Angle, formed in 2009, quickly establishing a clear sound and vision. The individual members had been honing their skills for years, as some began playing in their early teens and have ventured into playing many diverse styles over the years. Yates, who serves as the primary writer of music in the band, comes from a background in classical music and jazz. His diverse history informs not only the music he writes for At The Skylines, but also the programming elements that he brings to each song. Additionally, the band boasts not one, but two frontmen in the form of Shelley and Barela.

Barela commented on signing to Roadrunner, saying, “I am thrilled to see all that is to come from our relationship with Roadrunner Records. The opportunity to work with Fredrik Nordstrom on our first album is simply a dream come true!” Yates further elaborated, saying “Fredrik is someone that I have looked up to my entire life when it comes to music. From the bands he has produced to the bands he has played in, he is flawless. I am still taken back by the opportunity that we have been given in working with him on our upcoming album.”

Roadrunner A&R rep Andy Serrao commented, “We are really excited to have At the Skylines part of the Roadrunner family. In a short time the band has exploded into the heavy music scene and has won over fans with their great live show and infectious songs. We couldn’t be more excited to have them teamed up with producer Fredrik for their debut record, the end result will no doubt be one of the most crushing records of 2012.”
