| 5 March 2013 | Reply


WHILE SHE WAITS is a new rising force in hard rock, formed by members of Phoenix-area mainstay bands The Tommy Gibbons Project (Tommy Gibbons, guitar, backing vocals) and Contrary to Reason (James Cole, vocals). The band is pleased to announce their new record deal with Oklahoma City, OK based record label TMG Records. The band is working on new music now to be released with TMG Records later this year.

“We’re excited to be signed with TMG Records,” states WHILE SHE WAITS vocalist James Cole. “We’ll be working with them on a full distribution and manufacturing deal, so you’ll see us in major music retailers and stores like Walmart, Best Buy and more. TMG Records is seeing great success with many of their current artists, so we’re glad to be part of that great track record and the TMG family as a whole.”

“We expect big things from WHILE SHE WAITS and we’re really happy to have them join us at TMG Records,” states TMG Records A&R representative Luke Johns. “What stands out to us about WHILE SHE WAITS is their great alternative and classic rock sound, but more than anything, we love their energy. We get hundreds of submissions every week from bands wanting us to check them out, but what’s really unique about WHILE SHE WAITS, beyond what we normally hear and even beyond what’s popular right in hard rock right now, is that their music hits hard and never stops. The music is intelligent, well written and really draws you in with how catchy it is.”

Stay tuned for more information coming soon on the band’s upcoming full-length album.
