IT'S NOT A SECRET THAT THERE'S ALWAYS BEEN A DEEP CONNECTION BETWEEN EAT DUST & (UNDERGROUND) MUSIC. EVERYONE HERE IS AN AVID MUSIC ENTHUSIAST, INTO A WIDE RANGE OF STYLES. SO, ONE COULD SAY IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE EAT DUST WOULD VENTURE FURTHER INTO THAT WORLD. WITH THAT SAID, EAT DUST RECORDS IS HERE AND AIMS TO OFFER A VARIETY OF EXCITING MUSIC. FIRST UP? AN EP BY A NEW BELGIAN BAND CALLED WRONG MAN.
TO FIND OUT A LITTLE MORE, CHECK OUT WHAT KEITH HAD TO SAY ABOUT THIS NEW PROJECT.
"I've been heavily involved with music since I was a teenager. I played in a few bands myself, and never stopped going to shows and festivals. Since the start, Eat Dust has been linked to the music we're into. The fact that musicians like Dan Auerbach, Mark Lanegan or Colin Van Eeckhout wear or wore our clothes is simply because we were always a part of that world too. So, this was bound to happen!"
"The goal is to release music by newer and younger bands, first and foremost. But we're open to a lot of different things, so be prepared for a varied and challenging mix. We're going to take things step by step, and we'll work hard to make sure the music gets heard and picked up".
"Wrong Man is the newest band that Bjorn - who works with us - is doing. When we heard the recordings for their first EP, we immediately thought it would make for a perfect first release. The members of Wrong Man have all been involved with a slew of different bands, of which some - like Rise And Fall and Oathbreaker -have a name that really resonates around the world. Since their first song dropped, we've noticed that people are really picking up on it, which is cool to see".
The Wrong Man EP should be out physically around the end of the year. It's a joint release between Eat Dust Records in Europe & Atomic Action Records in the US.
