The team over here at Engine Room Recordings is tremendously excited to announce the first signing of 2008: The Bloodsugars. LEad by songwriter extraordinaire Jason Rabinowitz the ‘sugars are a great indie rock band that will get you moving on the dance floor. Infectious, synthy indie pop writing, excellent musicianship, great people. We will be releasing their BQEP digitally April 1st through Amie Street and April 8th digitally everywhere else including iTunes. The physical release will be towards the end of May with a spectacular to-be-announced release show. Oh and they’re playing a little venue called Madison Square Garden April 12th too headlining the half-time show for a Titans LaCrosse game. Special tickets on sale for that soon. Go check out the EP as it’s streaming in full on the The Bloodsugars MySpace page and be sure to let us know what you think!

Ooh, and news on the second volume of Guilt By Association coming soon! The Bloodsugars are in the middle of recording their version of a powerful little 80’s dance theme!
