(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Sevendust is teaming up with innovative record label WineDark Records, which is distributed in the U.S. by Fontana Distribution, a division of Universal Music and Video Distribution (UMVD), for the upcoming release of their latest record, Next, due October 11.
“It was amazing to see the reaction to what we had created from such a large percentage of the record industry," the band said. "After weighing many options we decided to sign with WineDark Records, who subsequently offered us our own record label imprint, 7Bros. Records. The excitement that we feel from WineDark Records is something we have never felt before. The end result is truly gratifying.”
WineDark Records is the latest project from music industry executives Michael Powlen, Gary Katz, Camille M. Barbone and Larry Stessel. Katz, Barbone and Stessel have previously spearheaded many artist projects and have helped amass a combined sales tally of well over 100 million records.
“Sevendust coming to WineDark Records is the birth of a new and mutually beneficial relationship between a record company and band in which both collaborate on every aspect of the recording, marketing and dissemination of the music," said Powell. "These guys are successful because their music is truly original. They connect with their fans by communicating a mutual love and respect. Who they are on stage reflects their off-stage energy, sincerity and integrity, and in the final analysis, their music says it all.” – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
