TRAITRS, one of the most up-and-coming Post-Punk meets Cold Wave bands in recent years, have signed a record deal with Freakwave, the label that was launched at the beginning of the year, spearheaded by Eric Burton and Thomas Thyssen, as well as a publishing deal with Schubert Music Publishing (SMP).
Sean-Patrick Nolan and Shawn Tucker have developed a large international fan base the old-school way within the past four years: producing good music, playing live wherever and whenever possible, and then giving their best on every damned evening and – to put it bluntly – therby convince pretty much every single person in the room.
Songs like “Thin Flesh”, “Witch Trials”, “Youth Cults” and “The Lovely Wounded” were essential parts of the set lists of Cool Goth DJs around the world when you actually still could go to clubs.
The Toronto based duo used the COVID-19 self-isolation downtime creatively to work diligently on new material, which will see the light of day in 2021. Official news on this will follow in the coming weeks and months.
As the rampant pandemic currently dictates, TRAITRS met in a video call with their new label partners in the form of Celsius Management + Hardbeat Promotion Managing Director and Freakwave Co-Labelhead Eric Burton and Schubert Music Managing Director / Head of Recorded Music and Freakwave co-label head Thomas Thyssen to toast the signing of the contracts and the future collaborative shenanigans.
