Victory Records welcomes Carousel Kings to their roster. The Lancaster, Pennsylvania band has anchored their name as one of the most ambitious and creative pop/rock/punk machines in recent years.
“Signing with Victory is an amazing accomplishment for us,” says singer David Alexander. “We’ve grown up listening to Victory bands, and we have friends that are on the label. Signing with them has just made us feel really valued and wanted. After meeting the whole crew, we definitely feel the mutual respect and look forward to doing great things with Victory!”
When Carousel Kings were thinking of a title for album number three, they wanted to find a name that was tranquil, yet matches their glossy pop melodies and arena-sized hooks. Charm City is about that dream place, a trippy world shared by all, yet unique to the individual. “This is the place where I go in my dreams,” says Alexander. “I want to connect the listener to my Charm City, and realize that they too can envision and live in their own Charm City whenever they want to.”
Downhaul is an emo band from Greensboro, North Carolina with family all over Virginia. Brutally honest and painfully self-aware, they actually have way fewer ex-girlfriends than their lyrics would lead you to believe.
