Smalltown America is proud to announce the addition of Belfast post-rockers And So I Watch You From Afar to its roster.
The eponymous full-length debut album will be released via Smalltown America on Monday 23rd March 2009. The album will be preceded by the double-A sided single “Set Guitars to Kill / A Little Solidarity Goes A Long Way” on Monday 9th March 2009.
And So I Watch You From Afar sprung onto the scene in 2007 with debut mini-album ‘This Is Our Machine And Nothing Can Stop It’. This year has seen the band steadily build their fan base, most recently joining Maybeshewill on a co-headlining, Rocksound-sponsored UK tour.
Commenting on the agreement, STA label head, Andrew Ferris said; "We are delighted to welcome ASIWYFA to the Smalltown America family. Their music is some of the most exciting that Northern Ireland has produced in the last five years, their commitment to the local scene is something we wholeheartedly applaud. This new record will melt faces."
ASIWYFA guitarist, Tony Wright said, "We are delighted to be working with a label that shares our enthusiasm for innovative and exciting music. With this alliance solidly forged, a debut album waiting to be unleashed and our unbreakable will to make the most tantalizing, new music out there - the world may yet spin backwards due to our uncompromising sound."
