Alternative rockers the Moth & the Flame are the newest act to hit the Elektra Records roster.
The Los Angeles-based band announced its new deal with the label exclusively via Billboard, and plans to release its major label debut in 2015.
Most recently, the California-by-way-of-Utah act dropped a six-song EP titled & in 2013. Billboard is also premiering a live video of that EP’s lead track — a winding, contemplative jam called “Sorry.” Watch the smoky, black and white clip below, as the band vibes beneath paper lanterns and the night sky before a sprawling crowd:
“There’s a great creative spirit there that we all immediately recognized and wanted to be a part of,” frontman Brandon Robbins says of Elektra. Robbins and his bandmates (keyboardist-vocalist Mark Garbett and former Imagine Dragons drummer Andrew Tolman) are currently working on their forthcoming LP, which features production from Peter Katis (The National, Interpol), Tony Hoffer (M83, Beck), and Nate Pyfer (Parlor Hawk, Fictionist).
Beginning Sept. 29, the Moth & the Flame starts a nine-date United States tour along with Neon Trees and No Devotion (featuring ex-members of Thursday and Lostprophets), who recently premiered new music via Billboard.
