SWEDISH BAND MOLLY’S GUSHER SIGNS WITH ALABAMA RECORDS
is proud to announce the signing of the Swedish, soon-to-be-rockstars, MOLLY’S GUSHER for the release of their new MCD Pick your poison and form a tragedy.
”Makin' it” is somewhat of a past tense in the rock world nowadays. When file sharing has got the record industry shaking in its boots, and chewing-gum-marketability and safe bets are the only thing the industry is ready to invest in, doing it your own thing is the last and only option. If you want to make a living of rock music that is. That's just what Molly's Gusher did. Their own record – the debut album simply called Molly’s Gusher. After paying their dues through demos, small gigs, dirty rehearsal rooms and member changes, the band always persevered.
They managed to be the first Swedish band ever to play at the acclaimed Woodstock Stop festival, in front of 400 000 people. They got rotation of their “Queen of my heart” – video on both MTV2 and MTV Nordic and they got voted as the best band in their home town of Örebro in 2003. All this, and raving reviews, and well visited gigs.
This kind of acclaim tends to get frustrating without the “real” success. It's kind of like feeding an albatross chick in a canary cage. So they did what any reasonable band would do at this point, and took matter into their own hands. November 2005 saw the dawning of a fully accomplished Molly's Gusher. With their self titled album they had the means for world domination, and not to say the drive and the energy. Their warm, lucid melodies, in combination with their down tuned, pounding rhythms penetrates the very core of the listeners emotional centre. Just to stomp all over it.
Now it is follow-up time. Placing Mattias Färm (of Millencolin fame) behind the knobs in the studio and the band instantly found a crisp and awesome sound. Resulting in this magnificent four track EP called "Pick your poison and form a tragedy".
This release is seriously taking Molly's Gusher to the next level and that by means is one big step closer to their big breakthrough.
“Wow, this band is a diamond in the rough! A hidden treasure and exactly the kind of artist every record company strive to find. We are nothing but truly honoured and excited to start this cooperation together with Molly’s Gusher” says Andreas Nyström of Alabama Records.
Pick your poison and form a tragedy is scheduled for release on December 7, 2007.

070219 New signing - Rockets To Ruin »
Stockholm, Sweden, February 19, 2007
Alabama Records are very proud to announce the signing of American hard rock band
Rockets To Ruin for an exclusive Scandinavian release of their debut album Love Drugs Rebellion.
Produced by Rachel Bolan (Skid Row), Rockets To Ruin’s raw, uncompromising sound slaps conformity in the face, reaching out to a generation lusting after the glory days of rock n’ roll. Loud, energetic and fun is their approach to song writing. Energy, attitude, sweat, and sleaze are their approach to the stage. They don't believe their lives are bad or that life is unfair. Instead, they believe in KISS, Guns N’ Roses, Mötley Crüe, The Ramones, The Cult and the power of rock n’ roll…and it shows! With a non-stop buzz developing in the South Eastern United States, Rockets To Ruin has made its mark on fans of this music and the numbers are growing daily.
Rockets To Ruin recently supported Paul Stanley (Kiss) on the Southeast leg of his solo tour in the U.S. and will soon embark on a few dates with Jason McMaster (ex Dangerous Toys) and his new band Broken Teeth.
Rockets To Ruin have previously toured with Skid Row, King's X, Nashville Pussy and have openedfor such bands as Georgia Satellites, Josh Todd of Buckcherry and Dark New Day to name but a few.
“Mark my words, in the very near future Rockets To Ruin will be a household name,” states singer Cleveland Willis.
RTR has been selected to perform at the Atlantis Music Conference (Atlanta, GA) 2004, 2005 & 2006, the Midwest Music Conference (Indianapolis, IN) 2005, the NASCAR Firecracker 200 (sponsored by 99X), the NOPI Nationals @ Atlanta Motor Speedway, 2005 & 2006.
The signing with Swedish label Alabama Records marks the first step towards the European market for Rockets To Ruin.
