IN STORES THIS WEEK!
Median Strip report that Evermore's debut album, 'Dreams', is expected to be released in the US later this year following reports that the band of brothers has signed with the Sire label.
Having taken Australia by storm, with platinum sales and radio airplay galore (and let's face it, a rather more subdued reaction at home, where the album has yet to go gold), the Hume brothers recently played showcase gigs in the UK and US.
Sire Records was formed way back in 1966 by Seymour Stein but really came to prominence in 1974 when the label picked up The Ramones, later merging with Warner Music and going on to help to launch the American careers of the likes of The Smiths, The Cure, The Cult, The Pretenders and other bands beginning with The.
Evermore join a roster of current alt-rock stars like The Von Bondies, The Distillers, Hot Hot Heat, The Futureheads and, erm, Spongebob Squarepants.
Evermore also recently signed a 'sponsorship' deal with Nokia Australia, the telecommunications company putting together a website featuring photos and video footage taken by the band using all the features of their fancy Nokia 3230 handsets.
It's the first time Nokia Australia has ventured into local music sponsorship (yes, they consider are Evermore theirs). The company's Head of Marketing, Anthony Wilson, says they "couldn't pass up the opportunity of supporting and promoting some of the best talent currently on the Australian music scene."
