UK based Intervurt has signed with FOF Label Group/EMI for the March 23rd, 2010 release of their upcoming debut album, “Union.” The group is currently streaming tracks from the album online at: www.myspace.com/intervurtrocks
“We are all really excited about this record and have an excellent team of people here at FOF/EMI. We love the States and can’t wait to unleash our British rock on the American public,” commented Intervurt guitarist Mark Alberici. “I think our music could work with a number of different audiences and people who like The Strokes or White Stripes could get into the album just as easily as someone who likes AC/DC or U2. We really worked hard to create music that wasn’t limited by boundaries and I think we achieved that.”
The 5-piece known as Intervurt has already begun making waves with their brand of melodic rock that has drawn comparisons to The Killers and U2. The group mixes infectious melodies with the dark brooding atmosphere of groups like Depeche Mode and Muse, and the powerful riffage of Queens of the Stoneage. The group somehow manages to blend everything together and create a unique sound that had the BBC Music proclaim, “This band is going to be huge.” The group’s electrifying stage show has earned them shows alongside The Strokes and The Raconteurs, as well as appearing at the O2 Wireless Festival in Hyde Park, Get Loaded In The Park, Beautiful Days, Guilfest, Bestival, The Great Escape, and In The City.
Intervurt’s debut album was recorded at Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Lady Studios (David Bowie, The Rolling Stones) in New York City and was produced by Mark Plati (David Bowie, Prince, The Cure) and Tom McKay (Joydrop).
