Rum Bum Records Signs Saliva
“The addition of Saliva further expands our reputation of cultivating artists that have a unique sound and style,” said Luis Bacardi, owner of Rum Bum Records. “We are thrilled to continue to expand our artist portfolio with quality musicians and look forward to playing a significant role in the band’s continued success.”
Since forming in Memphis in 1996, Saliva has produced a number of chart topping hits and earned a Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance for their single, "Your Disease." A number of tracks from their gold and platinum records have also been featured in major films including, The Fast and the Furious and Talladega Nights as well as successful games like Tiger Woods PGA.
“We want to sell 10 million records,” said Saliva’s front man Bobby Amaru. “We are all looking forward to getting in the studio and recording an album that will do just that. In the end what’s most important is coming out with songs that we’re excited to play, that our fans are excited to hear and that the combination of the two results in a great tour. That’s what it’s all about.”
The band members including Bobby Amaru (vocals), Dave Novotny (bass), Paul Crosby (drums) and Wayne Swinny (guitar) will be heading into the studio with Rum Bum Records in January 2013 with a projected album release set for late spring.
