Charleston, SC – March 14, 2013 (10T Records) – 10T Records is thrilled to announce the signing of 3RDegree to its roster of artists. 3RDegree will release an as yet untitled brand new CD through 10T Records in 2014. Effective immediately, however, the band’s back catalog, including the critically acclaimed newest CD, The Long Division, and its predecessor, Narrow-Caster, are available through the 10T Records’ online store as physical CDs, and in MP3 and M4A download formats. They are also available through 10T’s international distribution network. Two live DVD/Blu-Ray titles are available as well.
3RDegree will begin a Spring Tour on May 11th with a performance at the acclaimed New Jersey Prog House. More dates will follow as they are confirmed. These gigs will introduce new lead guitarist Bryan Zeigler.
Band founder and bassist/backing vocalist Robert James Pashman notes, “Of all the progressive rock labels I’d ever imagined us (3RDegree) having an interest in pairing with, 10T were the ones I always thought I’d call – it was just a matter of when.”
“I was introduced to 3RDegree through a Facebook friendship with the band’s guitarist, Eric Pseja,” says 10T Records president, Steve Carroll. “We ended up trading some music back and forth and after one listen to “The Long Division” I knew we needed to work together. This is exactly the kind of music that Jeff (Hodges of Man on Fire) and I wanted to help bring to eager ears when we started 10T Records. What an amazing album and band!”
Pashman continues, “Since our reformation decision at the end of ’05, I had ventured to have complete control over all aspects of the band – a real “do it yourself” attitude. We kept going DIY until the end of the year, at which time Steve made it clear to me that whenever we were ready with some new material, he would be very interested. I thought, well our latest album has only been out for a few months, so why don’t we give you our latest 2 offerings as well as our 2 DVD/Blu-rays and see what we can do. Personally, I hope to have a bit more time to put toward the music rather than the business.”
While 2013 won’t feature a new 3RDegree studio album, interesting things lie ahead with the band’s first live shows in over 2 years, and a look back at possibly “overlooked” 3RDegree music by year’s end. Details to follow!
