We’re very excited to announce that we’ve signed Australia’s Bleeding Knees Club! They mix the garage vibes of The White Stripes, The Black Lips and The Hives with summery beach sounds from the land down under. Their songs “Have Fun” and “Bad guys” have been making waves on Australian radio and the internet, and have caught the attention of the UK’s NME magazine, where they were named one of the “50 Best New Bands of 2011″.

IAMSOUND will release their debut EP Virginity on October 18th, and the release will be support by appearances at CMJ Festival in NYC in October as well as a handful of select dates in LA.

10/22 – New York – Brooklyn Bowl – Windish Showcase
10/22 – New York – MILK Studios
10/24 – Los Angeles – Bardot (KCRW School Night)
