The Kindred signs with Sumerian Records
Sumerian Records has announced the signing of Ottawa, Canada's progressive rock sextet The Kindred. Formerly known as Today I Caught The Plague, the band is no stranger to road or studio. They successfully self-financed a full-length disc in 2011, which cultivated tours with bands such as Protest The Hero, Devin Townsend Project, Periphery, The Faceless, Jeff Loomis and Scale The Summit. The group's well-proven work ethic and sustainable functionality as a unit speaks for itself on their upcoming release; an album which seamlessly and tastefully blends modern progressive elements, while at times creating tones reminiscent of classic artists such as Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

Due this fall, The Kindred's upcoming record was helmed by producer John Paul Peters (Propaghandi, Comeback Kid). His knowledge and skill, combined with the contribution of several incredible orchestral players, gave the group just the right amount of creative freedom to allow for a whole new level of musical growth.

A track from The Kindred entitled "Decades" can be streamed below.

Comments The Kindred vocalist David Journeaux: "I remember when we were writing material for our independent full-length, 'Lore', having multiple conversations about Sumerian Records as a label, and how well they seemed to work with their bands. Those conversations always ended with some variation of the statement 'it would be great if we could get ourselves onto their roster.' Knowing this, you can imagine how we felt when we first heard from the label. From that initial correspondence forward, we only had the best experiences in dealing with the people at Sumerian and we're quite excited to move forward with everything that's to come. As a group, we've always been really proud of what we've been able to achieve for ourselves, but now, with the support of an entity like Sumerian, we seem to be closer and closer to realizing some of the bigger goals that we've always had for ourselves."

Don't miss The Kindred on tour July 9 - August 11, opening for Misery Signals on their "Absent Light" tour.
