Tori Amos has announced that the debut album, Top Hats and Scary Tales from The Adventures Of… will be the first album released on her recently launched record label Transmission Galactic. While Amos will continue to release her own current projects through Deutsche Grammophon/Mercury Classics , she will waste no time in making the grandiose and intricately executed album from The Adventures Of… available to the band's fans. The album will be released immediately digitally and the UK based band will head to the states this summer for select tour dates.The glammed-up indie-rock trio, The Adventures Of… scored the first signing to Tori Amos’ record label via a feat of utmost ingenuity. Upon learning that the multi-platinum, eight-time-Grammy-nominated pianist/singer/songwriter was seeking artists for the label, frontman Adam Hanington gathered repurposed leather, wood, and brass to handcraft, a book-like vessel that would hold the band’s demo CD and a letter to Amos.Only two weeks later, the Devon, England-based band received word that their cabaret-inspired marriage of heavy rock and britpop had captured Amos’s attention. “The idea to start the label came from my desire to support music and artists outside of the major label system. Giving them a platform for their music and their art, is a major focal point of the label. When I was first introduced to The Adventures Of… it was clear that they were going to be my first signing. Adam’s ability to craft a story along with his natural showmanship were immediate.” Tori AmosIndustry vet and Transmission Galactic's General Manager John Witherspoon noted “From Tori’s unique leadership to our partnership with ADA and ADA Global, we have an outstanding team in place to launch Transmission Galactic’s debut project from The Adventures Of…”With Mark Hawley in the producers chair, The Adventures Of... headed to his Martian Engineering Studios in Cornwall to begin recording their irresistibly twisted debut record. The album even includes a guest performance by Amos herself, who lends a keyboard solo to the delightfully deranged track "Tears of a Paranoid Clown." “Complication,” the lead single from Top Hats and Scary Tales, reveals the band’s fierce vocals and frenetic guitars and begins to set the tone for Hanington’s serpentine storytelling and ornate arrangements.Fans can click here for a first look at a video the band made for “Complication” as well as download two exclusive tracks ("Complication" and "Beggars Dawn”) from Top Hats and Scary Tales by simply 'Liking' them on Facebook:

Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release Rage Against the Machine - XX, commemorative 20th anniversary editions of the eponymous debut album by a great American rock band, on Tuesday, November 27, 2012.Originally released in November 1992, Rage Against the Machine signaled the arrival of a revolutionary musical force, a band straddling the worlds of hip-hop and heavy metal with a scorching streetwise sound that rapped and rhymed hardcore across a musical backdrop as menacing and inspirational as graffiti. Rage Against the Machine entered the popular lexicon as more than just a revolutionary American rock band, the group's very name provided a rallying battle cry for the ongoing struggles for liberation--psychic and political--on planet earth.Formed in 1991, Rage Against the Machine opened the gates of a new boundary-obliterating rock-rap musical alliance with the band's literate and politically-charged debut album. Featuring band members Tim Commerford, Zack de la Rocha, Tom Morello and Brad Wilk, Rage Against the Machine became a critical and commercial success, selling millions of copies around the world while attaining legendary status among alt-rock fans. To this day the album, and the band, remain standard-bearers for uncompromising incendiary rock.Newly remastered for this anniversary release, Rage Against the Machine - XX will be available as a CD in three configurations: 1) 20th Anniversary Edition Deluxe Box Set housing two CDs, two DVDs, one 12" 180gm vinyl LP, one 40 page booklet and two-sided poster; 2) 20th Anniversary Special Edition featuring two CDs and a bonus DVD featuring six tracks in an oversized softpack and 3) 20th Anniversary Edition single compact disc (with three bonus tracks). 12" 180gm vinyl editions--a picture disc and a facsimile reproduction--of the original LP, remastered (no bonus tracks) will also be available.Compact Disc One of the newly remastered Rage Against the Machine - XX will include the original album, in its entirety, as well as three collectible b-sides from era.Compact Disc Two presents the original Rage Against the Machine demo tape. Recorded in 1991 and sold for $5 at the merch table at early Rage shows, the tape achieved mythical word-of-mouth status amongst music fans while helping to seal the band's deal with Epic Records. The 20th anniversary releases of Rage Against the Machine - XX marks the first time the entire RATM demo tapes have seen a full official release.DVD #1 included in the Deluxe Box Set features Rage Against the Machine's historic free concert in Finsbury Park on June 2010, performed as a thank-you to UK fans for making "Killing in the Name" the UK's Number One Single during Christmas week 2009. Also included are the band's groundbreaking music videos plus live concert performance clips.DVD#2 takes you back to the release of Rage's debut album focusing on live performance from 1991-1994, featuring the full set of RATM's first public performance as well as various live, rare clips.Rage Against the Machine - XX will include new liner notes penned especially for the band's 20th anniversary by longtime fan and hip-hop pioneer Chuck D.I.
