Frontiers Records has announced the signing of Sweden's THE MURDER OF MY SWEET.
The band was formed by drummer, songwriter and producer Daniel Flores, who — after a few false starts of what was to become THE MURDER OF MY SWEET — just by coincidence came across the magnificent singer Angelica Rylin, well endowed with the right look, voice and talents, being exactly what Daniel was searching for. The rest of THE MURDER OF MY SWEET's lineup followed — guitarist Daniel Palmqvist, bass player Johan Niemann and keyboardist Andreas Lindahl all being mentally, creatively and spiritually the right combination to complete the perfect match.
THE MURDER OF MY SWEET's sound is rich in influence and yet distinctly unique. The lush melodic cinematic landscapes reflect the diversity of the five members own musical experiences. From Angelica's soaring vocal melodies and sweeping choruses to the explosive layers of guitars from Palmqvist and the thrilling orchestratic keyboard arrangements painted by Andreas Lindahl backed by the bombastic and dynamic rhythms of Niemann and Flores. The resulting collaborations are a work both haunting and uplifting — fuelled by the curiosity of seeing where their burning ambitions will take them.
"All of us in THE MURDER OF MY SWEET are highly excited to be collaborating and releasing our debut album with such an experienced and talented label as Frontiers," says Daniel Flores.
"We feel extremely privileged to be band mates with such great bands as JOURNEY, TOTO and SURVIVOR, to mention just a few," adds Angelica. "We are looking forward to launch and to get our music heard world wide. A special thank you goes out to all our fans on MySpace who have been so dedicated and devoted since the start in 2007."
THE MURDER OF MY SWEET's single for the track "Bleed Me Dry" will be released exclusively in the band's home country on November 13. The band will also present the release with a launch gig in their hometown on the same day at the Roq Club.
The CD single track listing:
01. Bleed Me Dry
02. Bleed Me Dry (instrumental version)
03. Sands Of Time (non-album track)
