Better Than Ezra has signed with The End Records, it was announced Monday. The group, featuring co-founding members Kevin Griffin and Tom Drummond along with Michael Jerome, who joined in 2009, will also kick off a national tour this spring.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to team up with The End,” said Griffin in a statement. “With this upcoming album, it was really about exploring and reinventing a band that has been together for 25 years while staying true to who we are as artists.”
Distributed by ADA, the band’s eighth album — their first since 2009’s “Paper Empire” — is set for a summer release, with Grammy-nominated producer/mixer Tony Hoffer (Beck, Fitz and the Tantrums) at the helm. The record’s release details have yet to be announced.
The trio will hit the road for a national tour this spring in support of their forthcoming album.
