Vancouver purveyors of post-punk ACTORS have announced a new deal with Artoffact Records (also home to Vancouver’s Dead Quiet).
The signing will see Artoffact release the band’s debut album early next year. Called It Will Come To You, the album will be available for pre-order in the next couple of weeks.
“ACTORS have been careful about what we work on and release to the world,” says ACTORS guitarist/vocalist Jason Corbett. Music is art, and art can be very intimate and personal. We’re excited that Artoffact Records understands this. Working together was an obvious step for us to take.”
Along with Corbett, the band is made up of Shannon Hemmett on synth and vocals; Jahmeel Russell on bass and vocals; and Adam Fink on drums.
The band’s excitement is mirrored at the record label, with co-owner Jacek Kozlowski saying “I have huge respect for Jason Corbett as a producer — he’s worked his magic on some of Vancouver’s best bands. And with ACTORS, he’s put together a group of serious musicians with deep roots and talent, so it was a natural fit for the Artoffact roster.”
