Hacienda Heights, California quintet DEAR LIFE has inked a deal with Uprising Records. The group's debut album, "Framework", is scheduled for release on June 24.

According to a press release, "Framework" "showcases DEAR LIFE's attention to their songwriting and the blending of their influences to create a sound that is truly their own."

"All of us in the band enjoy all kinds of genres and I think it shines through in our music," says guitarist Vince Apostol of DEAR LIFE's influences.

To help capture the band's unique sound and passion for their music DEAR LIFE brought in Roger Camero (THE WARRIORS, NO MOTIV) to record and produce the album and Paul Miner (NEW FOUND GLORY, THRICE, ATREYU) to do the mixing and mastering.

It was their shared belief that music can deeply impact a person that brought founding members Vince Apostol (guitar), Matt Apostol (drums), and Daniel Moran (guitar) together to form DEAR LIFE. The addition of vocalist Kevin Castellon and bassist Mike Trujillo in 2004 rounded out the band's lineup and DEAR LIFE was ready to move forward full steam ahead. Since 2004, the band has earned themselves spots on tours with ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS (Century Media) and CATHERINE (Rise) and more recently shared the stage with the likes of such heavy-hitters as EVERY TIME I DIE and CHIODOS.
