Modern rock outfit Unwritten Law has signed with Atlantic imprint Lava after exiting Interscope earlier this year. The California-based group's maiden release for Lava will be "Music in High Places," recorded in a stripped-down setting at Yellowstone National Park for the music series of the same name. The set, due Jan. 21, is already being sold via the band's official Web site.
Unwritten Law reached new commercial heights with the album "Elva," which peaked at No. 69 on The Billboard 200 and spawned the No. 1 Modern Rock Tracks hit "Seein' Red." The "Music in High Places" set sports that track as well as 10 other selections from the group's back catalog, including "Rest of My Life," "Blame It on Me," and "Geronimo."
The band had a scare in late August when guitarist Steve Morris was injured last week by a bomb planted at his California home by a vindictive neighbor. Morris suffered a concussion and fluid build-up in his ears, forcing Unwritten Law to cancel a handful of shows over the Labor Day weekend. A security guard and a local police officer were also injured in the attack, which allegedly stemmed from a noise dispute.
Here is the tracklist for "Music in High Places":
"Before I Go"
"Rest of My Life"
"Up All Night"
"Blame It on Me"
"How You Feel"
