So why is this so important Patrick? Well, it's cause it's the next crutial step in the band's journey to acheiving a major label record deal (which would be pretty sweet, right?). Kings of A&R is an industry site that basically keeps labels in the know about who is coming up and making waves independantly. I'm not good at descriptions, so here's how they explain themselves:
"Throughout the last decade, Kings of A&R has helped hundreds of artists worldwide land licensing deals, endorsements, publishing deals, and major record deals with companies including Disney, Lava, Atlantic Records, Universal, Warner Brothers, EMI, Epic, Virgin, Republic, J Records, Island Def Jam, Wind-Up, Roadrunner, Mercury, Interscope, A&M Octone, Glassnote, Columbia, RCA, and various indie labels.
Kings of A&R has been recognized as a music industry leader by UK’s Financial Times, CNN, Billboard Magazine, Spin Magazine, Rolling Stone Magazine, as well as daily newspapers around the world."

I forgot to mention... I've put together an awesome team of cameramen (including my dude, Casey Watson) to film OPTION//CONTROL this Saturday night at The Pageant in St. Louis, MO. They will be opening for Ludo (formerly of Island Records). Expect an interesting little live video, just in time for the 1 year anniversary of my first OPTION//CONTROL video for their track "Dominator."
Can't believe that was a year ago already...
