FAIR TO MIDLAND To Release EP Through SYSTEM OF A DOWN Frontman's Label

Genre-bending Dallas progressive rock band FAIR TO MIDLAND will release its debut EP, "The Drawn and Quartered", on November 7 via SYSTEM OF A DOWN frontman Serj Tankian's label Serjical Strike.

The EP's studio tracks — "Orphan Anthem '86" and "Kyla Cries Cologne" — showcase FTM's flair for combining progged-out virtuosity with lead-heavy riffs, impassioned vocals, and dynamic tidal waves.

"It's not often that one comes across bands that are truly original, poetic, progressive, artsy and memorable, compounded by a killer live performance,” Tankian says. "FTM is such a band."

With mega-producer David Bottrill (TOOL, KING CRIMSON) behind the boards for their forthcoming Serjical Strike debut album, FAIR TO MIDLAND are "poised to turn rock music on its ear in 2007," according to a press release.
