Tue, Jan 21 2014: FLOOR
Reactivated underground rock band FLOOR have announced ‘Oblation’ as the title of their forthcoming new album. The full-length will hit the stores on April 25th (April 29th in North America). Track listing and cover artwork will be unveiled soon.
FLOOR was originally formed by Steve Brooks and Anthony Vialon in 1992, and issued singles on respected underground punks labels like No Idea, Bovine, Rhetoric and more. The band released their wildly influential self-titled full-length album in 2002, before splitting. Brooks went on to form another critically-acclaimed band: TORCHE, while Wilson formed DOVE.
Regarding the signing, Anthon Vialon said: “Breaking up in 2003, FLOOR got back together in 2010 to tour in support of their ‘Below & Beyond’ box-set. We'd noticed that our fan base had grown exponentially and doing a new record, kind of picking up where we'd left off, was something we agreed we should focus on. Their staff are fans of the band and since we seem to appeal to multiple genres, we believe Season of Mist will be able to help us with that”.
