Winnipeg-based BURNTHE8TRACK have inked a deal with Abacus Recordings. The four-piece, whose members include brothers Derek and Jason Kun, Sam Osland and Mike Goreski, formed in the summer of 2001. In the last two years they have opened for a number of high-profile artists, including PROPAGHANDI, THE ATARIS, SUM 41 and THE MISFITS. Packing a solid punch of hard riffs, and melodic punk hooks, they previously released "The Division" E.P. to extremely positive reviews. In previous bands, members have released discs on Epitaph and Smallman Records, and have toured throughout the world. The band began recording their debut at the beginning of October with Justin Koop, best known for his work with GRADE, SILVERSTEIN, JERSEY and SOMEHOW HOLLOW. With a sound described as "heavily melodic, exhilarating and addictive," expect BURNTHE8TRACK's powerful energy to set the music world on fire. The album is tentatively slated for release Spring 2004 in conjunction with extensive touring. In the meantime check out the MP3 "In Full Return" from their self-released album here.
