Counterparts sign to Pure Noise Records

Californian label Pure Noise Records has signed up Canadian melodic-hardcore band Counterparts for their fourth studio album in the US later this year. Joining The Story So Far, State Champs, Four Year Strong, Senses Fail and Hit The Lights on the Pure Noise roster, the group have also signed with Canadian label New Damage for their home country.

“We’re happy to finally be able to announce that we’ve signed to Pure Noise/New Damage,” says vocalist Brendan Murphy. “In my opinion, these are two of the best current record labels in their respective territories. The decision to sign with PN/ND was an obvious one. Thank you to those who stuck by us, and anyone who actually cares about anything we do. It means more than you know.”

Counterparts will play this year’s Download Festival, opening the third stage on Friday 12th June.
