Los Angeles rock act SMILE EMPTY SOUL will release its new album, "Chemicals", in the fall. The CD will mark the band's first release through their own imprint, Two Disciples Entertainment, in conjunction with a unique business venture through Chicago's Pavement Entertainment. Distribution and marketing will be handled through Pavement via RED (a division of Sony Music Entertainment) and MRI in North America and through RSK Entertainment in Europe and the rest of the world.
Pavement Entertainment president Mark Nawara states: "I am happy to be a part of the new SMILE EMPTY SOUL album. I've been a huge fan of the band for years and look forward to big things to come from these guys."
Pavement's director of A&R Tim King adds: "I've been close to these guys and a strong supporter of them since the early 2000s. It's great to finally be working with them on a much larger scale."
Says SMILE EMPTY SOUL's Sean Danielsen: "With all that the band has been through over the years, we finally feel at home with forming our own imprint and calling all our own shots. We are also pleased to announce that we will finally have a proper European release this time around and look forward to getting overseas to the many fans that have waited to see us over the years."
SMILE EMPTY SOUL is currently putting the finishing touches on "Chemicals" and will embark on a summer tour before the album is released.
