The fine folks over at Sound on the Sound posted an awesome little write-up about Good to Die and our recent signings of Sandrider and Absolute Monarchs today. Thanks to Abbey Simmons for the support, we appreciate it!
Here’s what Abbey had to say:
Last and certainly not least, the best news. A big congrats goes out to fellow local music blogger Nik Christofferson, who has just launched his own record label “Good to Die Records,” announcing two super solid Seattle bands as his first acts: Absolute Monarchs and Sandrider.
Christofferson has made a name for himself since starting his blog Seattle Rock Guy by having his ear to the ground and his body in the pit at heavy shows all over the Pacific Northwest. Lately he’s been booking some killer bills around town catering strictly to the heavy crowd and the launch of this label finds him investing in his community in another awesome way. Christofferson, a huge vinyl proponent himself, promises all his releases will come out on vinyl, which is music to our ears.
Good to Die, Absolute Monarchs and Sandrider will release their first records sometime in 2011, but until then you can take a listen to both bands via Bandcamp. And if someone sounds familiar in these projects, don’t be surprised
