STILL REMAINS Sign With ROADRUNNER RECORDS

Grand Rapids, MI's STILL REMAINS have inked a deal with Roadrunner Records.

The group, whose sound is being described as a mixture of "heart-crushing howls" and "heartfelt melodies amidst a swirl of keyboards" while "guitars chug brutally and then harmonize like IRON MAIDEN on overdrive," came to Roadrunner's attention through A&R man Mike Gitter (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, CRADLE OF FILTH). "I've never heard a band that smashes together Swedish metal, American metalcore and Saddle Creek-ish indie-rock all at once," said Gitter in a statement. "Then they push it all emotionally and over the edge! Guaranteed, this is the beginning of something great for years to come."

STILL REMAINS will be hitting the studio this fall for their Roadrunner debut, slated for release in 2005. An MP3 download of the track "I Can Revive Him With My Own Hands", taken from the band's "If Love Was Born To Die" EP, is available at this location.
