The Scouse Rockers ‘Sound of Guns,’are set to release their brand new single ‘Antarctica.’ on 25th June 2012

Following their sold out headline performance at Liverpool’s O2 Academy to over 1,200 people, Sound Of Guns announce new single ‘Antarctica’ through Distiller Records. Taken from new album ‘Angels & Enemies’, the single was produced by Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Ocean Colour Scene) at The Distillery in Bath.

‘Antarctica’ has been selected as the leading song to Sky Sport’s 2012 Champions League coverage. A powerful rock anthem, which mirrors the excitement and passion of the beautiful game. The B-Side includes a cover of ‘Killing Moon’ by Echo and The Bunnymen, a track which many will recognise from the Donnie Darko soundtrack.

In support of the new single, Sound Of Guns will be touring with The View, following festival appearances at Live at Leeds, The Great Escape, Lounge On The Farm, Rockness and a headline slot at Playground festival.

Having been discovered by BBC Introducing, nominated for the 2011 XFM New Music Award and championed by Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens and Mary Anne Hobbs, the band are a finely tuned musical juggernaut who are mercilessly shifting through the gears and clocking up sufficient mileage with their relentless workaholic ethics, as they look to emerge out of the shadows and into the unforgiving threshold of popular culture.

‘Antarctica’ is released through Distiller Records on 25th June.

Nineteen89 Records announce their arrival onto the scene with a release from up-and-coming producer Rumah.

Rumah takes a break from his traditional techno tipped production to join dubstep producer Progression for tech-roller ‘Chance Meeting’. With support from J:Kenzo, N-Type, Youngsta, Phaeleh, DJ Madd, Seven and Killawatt the track effortlessly blends the musical elements of dub techno with the ferocity of UK bass music.

On the flip Rumah goes in with acid influenced track ‘E1′. Mutated synths, bass and killer drum samples come together to create a devastating dance-floor destroyer. Support comes from South London Ordnance and Lawson on Rinse FM and NTS Radio.

Nineteen89 Records is a new London label from Conor Wheeler, most well-known for running successful London club night Dirty Canvas. It was set up with the aim of releasing high quality, intelligent music with exceptional artwork while not focusing on any genre of dance music in particular.
