Young London joins the Maphia Family - new album due Jan 10, teaser after the fold

The Maphia team is excited to announce that Young London will be the newest addition to the family. Based out of Boston, Matt and Sarah of Young London began writing music together in 2011. They quickly realized that their writing styles combined to form a unique, catchy electro-pop style. After their explosive debut at South by Southwest, they headed into the studio to start working on their first full-length album. With the direction of producer Mark Maxwell (Blake Lewis, Boys Like Girls), Young London completed their self-titled debut, to be released on Fugitive Recordings on January 10th. The songs could be described as 90's throwback--as if Danny Tanner invited Daft Punk over for dinner.

The duo embarked on their first US tour this summer, and their spark ignited a buzz that reaches from coast to coast.

Young London wants you to fall hopelessly in love with their music. Are you ready?

Eyes Set To Kill feature - TOP 11 STANDOUT ROCK BANDS OF 2011

Very proud of the guys in Eyes Set To Kill as they were recently featured as #10 on Red Bull's Top 11 Standout Rock Bands of 2011. Check out the full article here. Below is their thoughts on ESTK:

10: Eyes Set To Kill

With an overpowering DIY mentality, Eyes Set To Kill gained success strictly on their terms. The Phoenix, Arizona-based quartet broke away from the confines of independent juggernaut Suburban Noize, launched their own label Forsee Records and dropped their fourth studio album “White Lotus” in August without a major distribution deal.
But that wasn’t the only change. The group abandoned their signature screamo-pop flavor for a solid hard rock resonance with a metal ting. Also, the four-piece toured alongside Rob Zombie and the Rodriguez sisters were highlighted in Revolver Magazine’s “Hottest Chicks In Hard Rock” issue. Hard work goes a long way.
