Epitaph Records Signs Skip The Foreplay

Epitaph Records is thrilled to announce the signing of Skip The Foreplay. Known for their distinct musical style, which mashes up elements of dubstep and house with pop and metal-core, the ground-breaking Montreal - based band has been electrifying audiences with their intoxicating blend of hardcore heaviness and dance floor energy since 2010. Skip The Foreplay will be releasing their anticipated full length Epitaph debut this spring.

"Aside from having one of the greatest names in history, Skip The Foreplay are simply Satan's delivery system for music of mass destruction," offers Epitaph founder and President Brett Gurewitz.

Skip The Foreplay made a serious impression on audiences while appearing with the likes of Hollywood Undead, Lamb Of God, NOFX, Alesana and more. The band will be joining up with rock n' roll heavy hitter Ronnie Radke and Falling In Reverse for a tour this January and February before spending the summer on the road.

Skip The Foreplay singer Marc-André Fillion proclaims, "We're extremely happy to now be a part of the Epitaph family. Our first record is finally done! We can't wait to share it with you guys and will keep you posted on the release date. We've also just been confirmed on our first US tour with Falling In Reverse in January/February 2012. So come hang out and join the party!"

The band recently created an internet sensation with their stunning and delightfully seditious cover of the song "Champagne Showers" by the popular electro pop duo LMFAO. The new version retains all the seductive dance floor hooks of the track, while adding some serious heaviness that includes massive bass drops, breakdowns, and cerebral electronic remixes.
