Cyber Tracks, the LA based record label, owned by El Hefe (guitarist of NOFX) and wife Jen Abeyta are thrilled to welcome SoCal's Rock/Alternative clan Unwritten Law to their roster. Today, Paste Magazine has all of the scoop on the official signing and what this will mean for the future of Unwritten Law here! Jen Abeyta expands "Words cannot express how blessed we are to have the opportunity to work with such a monumental artist like Unwritten Law. This upcoming acoustic album is so unique, I've never heard anything like it before." El Hefe adds "I'm very excited to release this new album with Unwritten Law. I've always respected Scotty as a singer, and I have to say this is the best I've heard him sing. He sounds hungry."
Formed in San Diego in the early 90's, Unwritten Law was a major part of the pop-punk movement that swept the decade with staple releases like Blue Room, Oz Factor, and Unwritten Law. It was in the late 90's that the band would tour the world on The Vans Warped Tour and spring them into their biggest release to date Elva. As the band developed through the early 00's they began honing in on the ever growing punk energy while featuring more of a rock sound which still remains present in their live shows to date. Today, the band has released seven full-length studio albums which sold over 2 million copies and released half-a-dozen radio hits including, "Seein' Red," and "Save Me (Wake Up Call)," both of which entered the top 5 in the US Modern Rock Charts.
Scott Russo talks about signing to Cyber Tracks and his excitement for the upcoming release:
"Put it this way: These days and at this stage of my career, I only want to work with people I respect. As artists, innovators, and honest human beings, I found that in Hefe and Jen. Their words, and what they've already done have overshadowed any label I've had the displeasure of working for thus far. I know in my heart this is the right place for myself and my band. They not only see my vision, but are willing to truly see it through. I've been done with this acoustic record for a year and was looking for the right home, with the right spirit to put it out. I've found my/our home and people. I can't wait for you all to see exactly what the fuck I've been up to. UL and Cyber Tracks have something I honestly believe is different, special and definitely unexpected. Love from the Law."
Wade Youman expands on the significance of signing with Cyber Tracks:
"Signing to Cyber Tracks is fucking great. Scott and I have been on almost every major label there is. Now, we're in relationship with friends we trust, respect, and are on the same page with. We finally have the creative freedom that we wanted all along. Nanu nanu."
The band is currently touring Australia on their "Love Is The Law" tour and will be back in the US this March on tour. Fans can be on the lookout for brand new music in 2016!
