FLOOR Signs With SEASON OF MIST

Season of Mist has announced the signing of the widely respected underground rock band FLOOR.

FLOORSteve Brooks on guitar and vocals, Anthony Vialon on bass and Henry Wilson on drums — recently reunited on the heels of its career retrospective "Below And Beyond" box set, and is preparing to enter the studio to record a new CD.

Regarding the signing, Vialon said: "Breaking up in 2003, FLOOR got back together in 2010 to tour in support of their 'Below And Beyond' box set.

"We'd noticed that our fan base had grown exponentially and doing a new record, kind of picking up where we'd left off, was something we agreed we should focus on.

"Their staff are fans of the band and since we seem to appeal to multiple genres, we believe Season Of Mist will be able to help us with that."

FLOOR was originally formed by Brooks and Vialon in 1992, and issued singles on respected underground punk labels like No Idea, Bovine, Rhetoric and more. The band released a self-titled full-length album in 2002 before splitting. Brooks went on to form another critically acclaimed band, TORCHE, while Wilson launched DOVE.

FLOOR will hit the road late spring for short run of dates before they enter the studio. The run will begin on March 27 in Charlotte, North Carolina and conclude on April 10 in Birmingham, Alabama. Support on all dates comes from Joe Preston's THRONES.
