NOMINEE Sign To Smartpunk Records

Rock band Nominee have spent the last year quietly working away, writing and recording and planning. Today it comes to fruition as the band announces that they have signed to Smartpunk Records and share their first single under the label, “Hypertension.” Fans can stream “Hypertension,” available everywhere this Friday, November 15th, now exclusively on The Noise. The song can be pre-saved on Spotify and Apple Music, and a limited edition lathe cut 5” can be ordered now, here.

We’ve done everything ourselves for so long because of the standard we wanted to set and it felt incredible to finally find a label who really embraced and supported that about us,” the band shares. “’Hypertension’ is a tribute to our city and day one supporters. Austin has had our backs since the beginning and in our travels through out the last 6 years, we’ve noticed how lucky we truly are.

They continue: “Our scene doesn’t just support our band, but almost every band and art as a whole. We’ve seen the same faces for years and years over now, and that support is unwavering. Our friends show out every time.

Austin has been in a transformation since we started this band. It’s becoming more costly and nearly impossible to live in the city. While us, our friends and supporters get pushed further and further away, geographically, we haven’t gotten any further apart. We’re all here to stay.”
