Viable Records Signs Noriega
Upstart label Viable Records is proud to announce the group’s first release…NORIEGA’s Desolo will be out on December 8. Boasting members of Los Angeles buzzband BLACK SHEEP WALL, upstarts NORIEGA have posted “Life By Myself”, from the five-track effort, both available at http://www.myspace.com/noriegaband and http://www.viablerecords.com.
“We all went through Daniel’s passing,” Thompson says of the recent passing of ADMIRAL ANGRY’s Daniel Kraus during the writing process of Desolo, one of the band’s collective close friends. “It’s definitely a negative energy on the album for that reason among many others. But, we don’t want it to be saying it’s hopeless. Not only with the lyrics, but also with the music, there’s definitely an awkward vibe [for the band], but we wrote these songs in context to a series of less than ideal circumstances; like you don’t relate to anyone, that you’re more alone than you will ever realize. That’s what we tried to do with these songs.”
NORIEGA plans on holding a record release show closer to the release date of Desolo, and is mapping out tentative touring plans.
