Have Finch gone major?

Mystery surrounds one of my favourite bands, Finch, who it is believed have been signed to MCA Records.

The fivesome, who managed to debut in the Billboard top 200 in America following the release of ‘What It Is To Burn’ (the first time a Drive Thru band has done that), are now listed on the MCA webpage, which you can read here:

No official statement has been announced, although Drive Thru Records are famed for being used as a ‘feeder’ label for MCA, with Midtown, New Found Glory and Something Corporate having already made the jump.

But if it is true, and MCA do now have Finch on their label, look out for ‘Letters To You’ to be infesting a radio and TV screen near you very soon…

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
