LAW AND ORDER Sign Management Deal

LAW AND ORDER, the former MCA recording artists who released two critically acclaimed albums — "Guilty of Innocence" (1989) and "Rites of Passage" (1991) — have returned with their long-awaited third album, entitled "The Glass House". In light of this new release, the band — featuring all original members in Phil Allocco (guitar), Shane (vocals), Rob Steele (drums), and Sean Carmody (bass) — have signed a management agreement with the California-based Jeff Keller Management LLC, the company that currently manages '80s rockers, Jaime St. James (WARRANT) and BLACK 'N BLUE, as well as progressive goth metallers NICODEMUS.

At the height of their career, LAW AND ORDER garnered significant video airplay on MTV with their singles "We Don't See God" and "Soul Inside". The band also received a five-K review (the highest honor) in the U.K.'s infamous Kerrang! magazine, and toured with such platinum artists as PEARL JAM and BLIND MELON. Their upcoming third album, "The Glass House", was actually recorded back in 1992 and never released to the public as the band went its separate ways soon after the recordings. Guitarist Phil Allocco elaborates: "The band had lived together and the record was recorded in the house we lived in. It was a true collaboration — written, recorded and produced together. Much more experimental than the previous records, it was the band discovering our own voice. Due to the lack of support from MCA at the time, the band tried to get off the label — when the label refused to drop us, we declared bankruptcy to break all our contracts under the advice of our management. Soon after that our house burnt down, and we decided to end it before releasing the record." The band have remained friends ever since, and they decided that now would be the right time to release this great album that should be considered their greatest work together. "The Glass House" will see a European release through Z Records on January 5. Jeff Keller Management LLC will be seeking licensing agreements in the U.S. and Japan, two territories that the band did well in with their previous releases.
