Chicago's "INDIAN" Sign To Relapse Records

This is HUGE fucking news! Indian is a Doom/Sludge band from Chicago whom I always felt deserved more attention (to be fair I feel that way about most Chicago bands.) They have been around for awhile now, if you haven’t been lucky enough to catch their live show you may have seen the band members working at various bars and venues in the city.

I remember sometime last year a friend of mine informing me that Indian added a second guitarist which was exciting enough, but I was floored when I found out it was Will Lindsay formerly of Middian and Wolves in the Throne Room. They’ve been releasing some solid albums under Seventh Rule but being on Relapse will definitely expand their fan base, congratulations fellas! See you at the block party.

Official Press Release: Relapse Records is proud to announce the signing of INDIAN.

"INDIAN (Ron DeFries – bass, Bill Bumgardner – drums, Will Lindsay – guitar/vocals, Dylan O’Toole – guitar/vocals, Sean Patton - noise) formed in 2003 and has self-released a 7” EP followed by three full-length albums on Seventh Rule Recordings. The band will begin recording for their Relapse debut this fall.

INDIAN commented on the signing and forthcoming full-length; “We are hitting Semaphore Recordings in early October with engineer Sanford Parker, and with the addition of Will Lindsay on second guitar/vocals and Sean Patton on noise, it's going to be like nothing you've heard from us before. The album, which has yet to be named, is set for an early 2011 release and we will be hitting the road thereafter. Indian would like to thank Relapse and our fans...see y'all soon."

Additionally, INDIAN are among the confirmed guests at this year’s Kuma’s Corner Anniversary Block Party held in July at the famous heavy metal eatery in Chicago, IL. Other musical guests include EARTHRIDE, RED FANG, THE ATLAS MONTH, and more. Complete show details will be announced soon at
