MEANS, a prolific and emotionally charged post-hardcore band from Regina, Canada, has inked a deal with Facedown Records. The members of the band play songs that are birthed from their shared experiences and geared toward anyone who is looking for meaning in music.

Commented Facedown head honcho Jason Dunn: "The main thing that stuck out for me was the quality of the songwriting and the 'real' sounding vocals that are sung with passion. Matt has an incredible voice with a lot of melody but also a power that most singers today don't have. The balance of Matt and Dylan's vocals complement each other greatly and the music behind it all is as tight as it could be."

A full-length record ("In Red Grace", Lonely Tree Records, 2004), four-song EP ("More Than Watchmen for the Morning", Torque Records) and extensive Canadian touring have paved the way for MEANS to make the most of 2007 by releasing their brand new album, "Sending You Strength". The CD was recorded and engineered by John Paul Peters (COMEBACK KID, EVERY NEW DAY) and will see a March 6, 2007 release on Facedown. Look for the band on tour in the U.S. non-stop this spring as well as a spot on Facedown Fest '07.
