Ska Vengers Secure Deal With EMI
The Ska Vengers have negotiated a deal with record label giant EMI for their forthcoming, as yet untitled debut album due for release in November.
Currently in its final stages, the LP is being mixed by BBC Radio producer Miti Adhikari who has worked with Radiohead, Coldplay and India's The Supersonics, Menwhopause and Them Clones.
Two tracks from the band are also being remixed by Dualist Inquiry though these are unlikely to appear on the album. Rumors suggest that there will be limited edition versions that will contain a live performance DVD likely to be shot at one of their upcoming gigs. A video is also already in production for the track Radiates That Charm and will be available prior to the album release.
Suggested track list:
Mr Big Stuff
Rough and Mean
Radiates that Charm
Waiting for the Man
The Ska Vengers formed in 2009 and are India's first ska/rocksteady band. Blending ska rhythms with elements of dub, punk, jazz and rap, they have developed a style that is refreshingly different and energetic. The band has created a massive stir in India's live music scene offering a new sound to hungry music fans making way for their eagerly anticipated debut LP.
