Rite of Passage / Mediaskare Records is proud to announce the addition of Los Angeles, CA based band THE SHEDS to its roster of artists. The band, which features brothers Mac, Evan, and Morgan Miller along with drummer Mark Blaker, formed in 2005 as a way for the brothers to play cover songs for fun. Over the years the band transformed from just a cover band into a full-fledged group with a growing west coast following thanks to multiple tours, including time on the Vans Warped Tour.
“The most appealing aspect of signing with Rite of Passage / Mediaskare was the fact that we are a completely different kind of band than anyone they’ve ever worked with,” stated vocalist Mac Miller. “I’m excited to work with people who are excited to work with us.”
The band will enter Undercity Recordings in October to begin work on their debut EP for the label. The effort will be released digitally and on 7” vinyl this winter. A previously unreleased track from the band titled “Heart” is now available for listening on the band’s Facebook page located here http://www.facebook.com/thesheds.
“We want people to approach listening to us with an open mind. I know we’re not for everyone, but we’re doing something there isn’t a so-called “scene” for,” said the band. “We sing our songs from the heart and hope people will relate to them.”
