TRANSMISSION0 To Release Debut Album In August

Netherland-based aggressive metal/hardcore band TRANSMISSION0 will release their debut album, "0" (Zero), on August 24 through Go Kart Records.

"0" was completely created (recorded/mixed) at the band's own Behind Green Door Studios in Tilburg, The Netherlands with guitarist Mischa van Rodijnen serving as both album producer and mixer. "At first it didn't look as if we would ever really start this band," says bassist Dave van Beek of the album and the band's early formation. "After the break up of our former band (REVEAL), Mischa and I decided we wanted to start a dark, heavy and atmospheric band. And it took us three years to get everything to our liking in place."

Originally planning to work with small European indie Garden of Exile Records, TRANSMISSION0 switched paths earlier this year when recordings by the band were received by long-respected U.S. label Go Kart Records. More known for punk rock, in which the label is home to THE MEATMEN, BUZZCOCKS, G.B.H., LUNACHICKS, TEN FOOT POLE and the recent reissue of PIGMY LOVE CIRCUS (featuring TOOL drummer Danny Carey), the two agreed to align together. Three months of work would find "0" completed and ready for the worldwide stage.

"I cannot express really how happy I am with the result, especially considering we have done it all on our own." says van Beek. "We didn't have a producer or really expensive studio equipment. It was just us and the stuff we had at that moment. We are really proud of this album."

Described as a mix of ISIS, NEUROSIS, MASTODON and CAVE-IN, "0" features the following track listing:

01. Journey
02. vs Vampire
03. San Miguel
04. **
05. The Return
06. U-boot
07. Dust Like Sand
08. Ether
09. Serenity
10. ***

Go Kart Records is distributed exclusively in the U.S. and Canada by Koch Entertainment and Plastichead Music Distribution for all European territories.
