Los Angeles rockers MY RUIN will release their new album, "Throat Full of Heart", in the U.S. on July 8 through the band's imprint label Rovena Recordings via Redeye USA. The CD, which debuted earlier this year in Europe via Cargo Records UK, is the follow-up to 2005's "The Brutal Language". The new album was recorded at The Hobby Shop in Highland Park, California (owned by producers Mudrock and Scott Gilman) and was co-produced by MY RUIN guitarist Mick Murphy and Duane Burda.
"We want to thank our friends and fans in America for being so patient as we solidified the distribution for our new album in the United States," frontwoman Tairrie B said. "It's been great running our own label and we appreciate Cargo Records giving us this opportunity. The new album's been getting a great response overseas from both the fans and the press and we hope to continue the momentum in the States."
