Adeline Records has signed Australian rockers the Living End for North America.

Adeline is the imprint set up by Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day and manager Pat Magnarella. It is distributed by East West.

Through the deal, the Melbourne-based trio's "State Of Emergency" will be issued July 11 in the United States, and July 18 in Canada.

The band will support the North American release with four weeks of shows on the Warped Tour in July followed by their own U.S. headlining tour in August.

"State Of Emergency" debuted at No. 1 in February on the Australian Recording Industry Assn. chart.

The album, the band's fourth, has now been certified platinum for sales of 70,000, according to the band's label EMI Music Australia.

The set's lead off single "What's On Your Radio", which debuted at No. 9 on the ARIA chart, will be released next month in North America.

"Adeline respect and understand the music and the vision of what The Living End are about," said guitarist Chris Cheney.

The band was previously signed to Geffen for North America in 2000.

The Living End also recently struck up a deal with JVC Victor for Japan and Southeast Asia, where the album is set for a June 21 release. The Living End made two appearances at Japan's Punk Spring festival April 1 and 2.
