Press


The Dead Letter Insignia is the one and only band personally handled by Steal This Release! They were picked by hand out of many, many, bands all over the U.S. Steal This Release! chose this band, because of their exceptional musical abilities and growing popualrity.


Steal This Release! is a booking agency for independant bands all over the US. I (nikki) personally have been involved with the local music scene in Indiana since 1998. First starting off just going to local shows at the Emerson. Then in the year 2001 I began working with Indianapolismusic.net taking pictures at the first round of Battle of the Bands at the Patio. I did do a couple of intereviews and columns for the site. In that same year I started my own promotions and concert booking company called "Steal This Record Promotions". Severeal bands that I worked with and I began the Indianapolis Music Group which did a lot of all ages shows at the Festivilla, The Emerson, The Volcano Room and Rehearsal Studios. Some of the shows that we did were "Funk the Turkey", and "Puddin Fest" which were highly acclaimed from Nuvo, Indianapolis Star, Clear Channel (livenation), and Indianapolismusic.net. I personally have booked shows at Tailgators, Rehearsal Studios, Birdys, The Festivilla, The Emerson, and The Volcano Room. With the fall of the Indianapolis Music Group I started working at Ticketmaster as a ticketing coordinator and at Clear Channel (livenation) doing small promotions. From working at these jobs I got to meet a lot of very important people in the music business. Including David from Korn, Billy Corgan, Good Charlotte, Jimmy Eat World, Godsmack, Spineshank, 311, Savage Garden, The Strokes, You're Pretty, Deftones, A&R reps from Roadrunner and Capital among many many others. I was also doing some interning at the Pop Machine thanks to Marc and Eric Johnson whom took me under their wing.
After about two years off due to some personal endeavors I have decided to start promotions and booking again. With a slight name change and the help of several people in the scene I have started booking every Thursday at Locals Only. Other ventures I have are interning at Birdys with Jeff Sample learning how to book national and regional acts, doing booking and promtion for THE FUTURE, and management of The Dead Letter Insignia. Soon I hope to be working with Marc and Eric Johnson again at Indie 500 Records.

Bio

The Dead Letter Insignia™ formed in January of 06 in Portage, Indiana. Rising from the ashes of Seconds From Silence,One Step Behind and M.a.t.e. They are determined to take the local scene by fire and controversy with a diversity that is sure to get everyones attention. They are a perverted mixture of metal hardcore and punk with influences from The Misfits, Tool, Deftones, and 36 Crazyfists. Thier lyrics are comprised from a life of drugs, alcohol, politics, and emotion. Everything that that can tear you down and bring you back up screaming. A total war of the senses. With only playing out for a few months now they have been gaining in popularity. These boys give it their all at thier shows. Pushing thier musical abilities and bodies to the absolute max. A live show with The Dead Letter Insignia is nothing short of amazing. Not only does thier music capture you, but their stage show makes you want to get up and be apart of it. These are true entertainers, doing it not only for the music, but for thier fans. They demand your full attention and recieve it in abundance.
