Fair to Midland Sign to eOne
Prog rockers Fair to Midland have found a new label home. The band, which makes smart, intricate music, has signed to eOne and will release a new album in spring 2011. The eOne debut will be supported by a tour, as well.
In keeping with the band’s proggy, forward-thinking style, they’ve hired Joe Barresi — who has twiddled knobs for Tool, Queens of the Stone Age and Coheed and Cambria — to produce the platter and help generate their desired sound.
“We’re all huge fans of what Barresi did with Queens of the Stone Age. We wanted a stellar rock producer and were lucky enough to find one who has managed to find the happy medium between polish and performance,” frontman Darroh Sudderth said in a statement. It sounds like Barresi and smalltown Texas farm boys in FTM are perfectly suited for one another, and Noisecreep is looking forward to seeing what they come up with.
The new, as-yet-untitled album will be the band’s follow-up to ‘Fables from a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times Is True.’
