Gabriel the Marine Signs to Sun Pedal Recordings

Long Island’s own Gabriel The Marine have signed a new worldwide deal with Sun Pedal Recordings. The New York indie rock/pop band will release a four-song EP this Fall to give fans a slice of what’s to come. Fans can also expect the EP to be followed by a debut full length album for the first half of 2013.

Tommy LaCombe, owner Sun Pedal Recordings comments, “We’re more than excited and honored to have Gabriel The Marine join our label and become an integral part of our vision for the music industry.”

Gabriel The Marine front man Mike Desmond comments, “We are excited to announce that we have found a home for our music with Sun Pedal Recordings. It feels good to be a part of something so new, and we’re looking forward to the future of Gabriel The Marine as well as Sun Pedal Recordings.”

Formed in 2008, Gabriel The Marine is a violin-infused indie rock/pop quintet from Long Island, NY with a sound all their own. After two critically acclaimed self-released EPs, the band will release a new EP this Fall on Sun Pedal followed by their debut full length studio album in 2013. They are currently at work on music with accomplished producer Jim Wirt (Fiona Apple, Jack’s Mannequin, Incubus). The new studio album will be supported by extensive touring that will stretch well into 2013. Gabriel The Marine has played the Bamboozle festival twice and have toured with such artists and bands as John Nolan, Taking Back Sunday, Bayside, Jacks Mannequin, Mae, Anberlin, and the Dear Hunter.

Gabriel The Marine is the latest addition to independent label Sun Pedal Recordings. The label was formed by Tommy LaCombe, owner of Tragic Hero Records, to expand his music offerings into the singer songwriter and alternative rock and indie music genres. Sun Pedal Recordings recently issued its first release, Listening, from singer songwriter Ben Taylor.
