12th Avenue Sign To Musketeer

February 26, 2008 – 18:36 by John

After weeks of intense negotiations, MobEntertainment is proud to announce that 12th Avenue have signed to the same label as Seether, Musketeer Records!

We are so happy for 12th Avenue on their signing a record deal with one of South Africa’s top record companies, Musketeer Records. The deal was conceived after 12th Avenue played a highly successful show with Shaun Morgan from Seether on his December 2007 tour of South Africa.

Formed in 2004, 12th Avenue consists of Mark Haze, Bjorn Faree, Stanley Hill, and Gareth Haze. After signing with MobEntertainment in 2005 and releasing the highly successful album, “Crazy”, which saw the single “CRAZY” hit number 1 for six consecutive weeks on the 5fm charts, the band went from opening band to headlining band.

The band’s constant touring and hard work has gained them quite a huge following across South Africa. In 2007, the band released their second album, “Insane”, which is currently burning up the national radio charts with another hit single, “LIVING IN MY LIFE”, which is currently sitting at number 12 on the 5fm charts.

The band has worked very hard to reach to this point of signing with Musketeer Records. Musketeer Records CEO, Peter Lacey, is very excited about his new band and expecting great things to happen over the next 24 months. 12th Avenue are hard at work on their new album, which is due for release on 6 June 2008.

12th Avenue will once again be working with Canadian producer, Moon, and will be recording at LMX studios in Cape Town.

MobEntertainment & 12th Avenue would like to take this opportunity to thank all the fans and the South African music industry for believing in them.
