Sodium Part Ways With Universal And Releases New Album By Themselves
Powerpop/Modern rockers SODIUM signed a recording contract with UNIVERSAL RECORDS in February of 2002. Things were promising. Songs are recorded and one, ?Alyssa Milano? is released to radio. Many stations, especially KLEC 106.3 in Little Rock, put the song into heavy rotation and the BAND begins touring to support their release. The band releases a second single, ?Anyway', which is about the Oxycontin epidemic in their home state of KENTUCKY. The head of Universal Music, Monte Lipman, says the band has the musical integrity and songs to be the millenniums new Bon Jovi. It is soon apparent, though, that the BAND is not high on Universal?s priority list, and the two part ways in August of 2003. The time spent under contract is a learning experience for the trio and now they feel more prepared than ever to make themselves known.
Now, after two independent records, two nationwide radio releases, and countless shows, SODIUM is poised and ready to further their careers and overcome any adversity thrown in their collective path. A new RECORD is in the works, and the band feels that this is by far their best effort to date. A tenacious light shines in their eyes and in reflected in their attitude. It is clear that these three will stop at nothing to live their dream and that no one will stand in their way. The new record, ?The Octagon Missile Crisis? will soon be completed and SODIUM will venture out into clubs and music halls to spread their music and create new believers. The band will
release the new album in November.
