Forget Cassettes Signs to One Little Indian & Tours Europe with Trail of Dead
Beth Cameron, performing as Forget Cassettes, finalized a European record deal with One Little Indian Records and Tangled Up Recordings, home of artists such as Bjork, The Twilight Singers and The Pernice Brothers. One Little Indian/Tangled Up will be re-releasing the album Salt, originally released in the United States by theory 8 records, on March 5th.
To coincide with the album release, Forget Cassettes will be touring Europe in February and March with Interscope recording artist, And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead. The band will be opening more than 25 dates beginning in Birmingham England and ending in Athens Greece. This will be the second time Forget Cassettes has toured with Trail of Dead, the first being in 2004 in the United States.
Due to Beth's ever-evolving musical endeavors she has decided to reorganize the Forget Cassettes line-up and will be touring Europe as a 2-piece with Doni Schroader who has spent the last two years recording and touring with Trail of Dead. Bassist Jay Phillips is focusing more time on his band, Apollo Up! and drummer Aaron Ford will be touring with Bobby Bare, Jr.
Also changing for Forget Cassettes will be Beth Cameron's relationship with her current label, theory 8 records. Beth will now be officially joining theory 8's management branch of the company, with Aaron Hartley acting as her full time manager. She will be joining two other acts on the management's roster, De Novo Dahl and Umbrella Tree.
