Press Release
Norfolk, VA - City of Sound (April 2016) –
Brink Records is thrilled to announce the signing of hard Alt rockers Turncoat Syndicate. Turncoat Syndicate is a driving four piece that has developed a solid following in the Southeast over the last couple of years thanks to satisfyingly crunchy recordings and dynamic live shows. They have been nominated for several regional awards and will be featured in the forthcoming film City of Sound, directed by renowned video director Tremayne Johnson. Turncoat Syndicate’s signing resulted from Brink’s ongoing New Artist Search.

Their EP Mourning Star Turncoat Syndicate has received significant regional play on alt rock radio and podcast support and is now being added at stations elsewhere. Brink is adding additional support for Mourning Star immediately, ahead of the national release of multiple singles and new videos in the summer and fall of 2016, leading up to the release of the Turncoat’s first full length album.

Prior to the signing, Brink did a radio test with several tracks and received a 100% positive response from several rock/alt rock stations surveyed across the US. “Based on those early responses,” said Drew Little, Head of A&R, “we expect Turncoat Syndicate to get extensive radio play. They have broad appeal among rock fans, DJs, and PDs and they have several singles that we think will do very well with the right support. Add to that several good quality and visually interesting videos and I think they are going to reach a whole lot of fans.”

Turncoat Syndicate has been favorably compared to many of the icons of alt rock including Stone Temple Pilots, Nirvana, and more. They have several festival dates booked for the near future and will be adding tour dates soon. In the meantime they will be finishing the new album and shooting new videos.
