Ask Tooth & Nail: Are There Plans To Keep Signing Bands?

Alright guys. I’m back! Sorry about missing last week. I was out camping in the wilderness and too busy fighting off mountain lions, catching salmon with my bare hands and constructing a shelter out of sticks and leaves to check our email and address a question for Ask Tooth & Nail.

Okay, so maybe I was just making s’mores and collecting sea glass. Whatever. Let’s get back to it!

This week’s question comes from Nels:

Are there plans to keep signing bands? I really hope so, so many of your new ones are amazing! =D

Our answer:

Why thank you, Nels! We love our new bands too – well, all our bands really. It’s hard not to.

We are definitely always trying to sign new up-and-coming (or sometimes already-established) bands. Keeping our roster well-rounded and awesome is important to us. And like you, we really enjoy listening to new music. There’s nothing like discovering a band you love for the first time. It’s just so exciting and inspiring, and those feelings never get old.

Rest assured that as long as there are great new bands out there, we will continue to sign them.

In fact, there’s one in particular I’m thinking about right now. We’ll be announcing our marriage with this Arkansas-based band sometime next week. Hopefully the news won’t be too polarizing?

Have a great weekend everyone!

Ask Tooth & Nail: Will Anchor & Braille’s “The Quiet Life” Be Released On Vinyl?

Hello out there in Tooth & Nail Land!

How are you guys? Have a good week?

Today’s question comes via email from Kyle Vallely:

I was wondering if T&N was releasing the vinyl of Anchor & Braille’s The Quiet Life, or if another label will be. Do you know when it will be released on vinyl? Thanks!

Our answer:

YES! Anchor & Braille’s “The Quiet Life” will definitely be available on vinyl. While the album is out in stores and online this coming Tuesday, July 31st, unfortunately the LP is going to be delayed a bit. We can’t say exactly when it will be available, but the details for it are currently being sorted out. What I can say is that the artwork will be slightly different and exclusive to the vinyl version of the record. We’ll give you all the info once we’ve got it!

Shameless plug time: “The Quiet Life” is still available for pre-order now at the Anchor & Braille Store, or iTunes. Be sure to look out for it on Tuesday! It rules, and we mean that in a totally non-subjective, professional, unbiased way.

Happy Friday!

Ask Tooth & Nail!

We’re starting a new weekly column called “Ask Tooth & Nail.” You ask, we answer. Each week we’ll pick a question and a member of our awesome staff will write a response here at the ol’ Tooth & Nail Blog.

Theoretically, these questions could be about anything: the music business, McDonalds vs. Burger King, album cover inspiration, fantasy football…pretty much whatever is on your mind. Who knows, maybe we will finally learn why the chicken crossed the road.

So get askin’!
