CrashCarBurn signs to EMI with new album
Local pop-punk band CrashCarBurn has signed to record label EMI.
After going fully independent for their last album, Long Live Tonight, the band’s signing to their first-ever major label marks a new era for the band.
The signing comes with the release of their third album, Gravity, which frontman Garth Barnes describes as “the most bipolar thing [the band has] ever done,” with the album exploring both their hardest and softest sides.
CrashCarBurn will also be releasing a short documentary, in intimate look into the life of the band for fans, which airs at Nu Metro Montecasino on November 6.
The band has scheduled a summer tour to promote the album, so watch this space for more.
CrashCarBurn formed in 2006 in London, and since then have been at the forefront of the South African rock scene. Their debut album, This City Needs a Hero received national praise and single Seranade was voted song of the year 2007 on the Hight 5 at chart on 5fm.
Long Live Tonight earned the band two SAMA nominations.
