We are happy to announce that today we are officially launching VILD Booking. The first bands to join our booking roster are Nancy, Valtter Vin, Musta Valo and Jaakko Aukusti, who is also joining our label VILD Recordings. Welcome aboard! All questions concerning our booking department can be directed to Agent/Promoter Antti Yli-Halla: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are also extremely happy to welcome the Helsinki based garage/punk quartet Van Dammes to join VILD Recordings!
Our other releases in the near future will include new singles from Sofa Pets, Valtter Vin and Phantom. The new Sofa Pets single will be released already this week, on January 15th. Here’s preview of the great cover art designed by the band’s own Sampo Seppänen.
Van Dammes are a Finnish four-piece garage/punk band from Helsinki, originally formed in Brussels in 2013. Better Than Sex, their second EP, will be released digitally worldwide on VILD Recordings in February 2015. This brief but loud four-song recording was taped in the Finnish capital at the same place where The Ramones performed already in the 1970’s. It is impossible not to hear that fact when listening to this upbeat work of art. The lead single, Vesna (Flash in the Night), will be available with an official music video prior to the EP release on February 3rd.
Jaakko Aukusti is an artist whose music can be described as unconventional, naivistic and exceptionally ambitious pop music. The songs are inspired by other good songs, stuff that was “in” a few years ago, overdrive and reverb pedals and Nintendo games. Jaakko Aukusti writes catchy-sing-along pop songs that don’t sound like catchy-sing-along pop songs. The first single release from the upcoming debut EP will be out on February 10th. under the title Shadow Boxer.
