Ironclad Recordings (Trevor Phipps of Unearth’s label) is pleased to announce the signing of STARRING JANET LEIGH. Formed in 2003, the Canadian metal act Starring Janet Leigh began with creating music the band found both interesting and challenging with no compromise to musical integrity. Fusing death metal, hardcore, and modern jazz to create a sound that can best be described as progressively technical death metal, Starring Janet Leigh’s aural onslaught is a fine blend of artistry, fury, passion and precision. Combine the band’s musical fervor and dexterity with their unforgettable live show and what you end up with is no need for gimmicks or clichés.
Starring Janet Leigh is now poised to unleash their debut full length album Spectrum on the world, which lands in stores and online everywhere May 12th, 2009. The band recorded Spectrum in June and September 2007 with Producer/Engineer Greg Dawson of BWC Studios who has previously worked with Mare (Hydrahead), The End (Relapse), Moneen (Vagrant) and many others. Mastering of Spectrum was handled by Alan Douches at West West Side who has worked with Converge, The End, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Mastodon, Unearth, and Nile just to name a few. Current fans and new comers to Starring Janet Leigh should expect to hear the band head in a much more death metal direction on Spectrum while still retaining their progressive and experimental roots.
Expect to see Starring Janet Leigh across Canada, the USA and Europe in the near future.
