Texas natives FAIR TO MIDLAND have signed a worldwide deal with eOne Music. The band's new album will be produced by Joe Barresi (TOOL, QUEENS OF THE STONEAGE, COHEED AND CAMBRIA) and is is scheduled for a spring 2011 release.
"I've been looking forward to working with these guys for quite sometime. They're a great band whose music is intricate and yet very melodic," says Barresi.
The new album will be the band's follow-up to "Fables from a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times Is True" which included the popular singles "Dance of the Manatee" and "Tall Tales Taste Like Sour Grapes".
"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," says FAIR TO MIDLAND frontman Darroh Sudderth.
Founded in 1998 in the quiet farm town of Sulphur Springs, Texas, FAIR TO MIDLAND quickly became one of the Lone Star State's fastest-rising bands, earning critical acclaim for their first two independent releases, 2001's "The Carbon Copy Silver Lining" and 2004's "inter.funda.stifle".
Since the release of "Fables From a Mayfly", they have shared the stage with bands such as THE SMASHING PUMPKINS, FLYLEAF, CHEVELLE, DIR EN GREY, ALICE IN CHAINS, and SERJ TANKIAN throughout the U.S. and Europe. The band has made appearances at festivals such as Coachella, Bamboozle, Download, Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park.
FAIR TO MIDLAND is Darroh Sudderth (vocals), Cliff Campbell (guitar), Brett Stowers (drums), Matt Langley (keyboards) and Jon Dicken (bass).
