It always makes me happy to see a hard working band get signed to a label, especially one that I dig a lot. Cincinnati’s Mixtapes recently announced that they were picked up by No Sleep Records and were currently recording their first full-length album that will drop this Spring.
Ryan Rockwell (singer / guitarist) had this to say about getting signed and releasing new material:
“We are really excited to be signing to No Sleep Records and making our first full length, we are currently in the studio and making magic. We are excited to be spreading the lyrics of Cam’ron, good fashion techniques, and also the opportunity to make friends of many races, nationalities, and even different musical taste (maybe). We are recording just over 20 songs and can’t wait to see what makes the album. As for the sound it sounds pretty much what we sound like, although less acoustic.”
I’ve seen this band numerous times at small venues and cramped basements and talk them up a lot with good reason. They are a great act to listen to as well as see live, and I look forward to hearing their full-length this Spring. If you like your punk a little poppy with humor and realistic themes throughout songs, then check this band out.
