Volcanoes Signs to Afternoon Records



St. Charles' loudest duo took a huge, sudden leap today, signing with respected indie label Afternoon Records. The label's current roster includes Pomegranates, John Vanderslice and Haley Bonar. Its alumni include beloved local post-punk Target Market.

In its announcement of the signing, Afternoon Records says, "We're really excited to be bringing both Eric and Jon into the AR family, and are really foaming at the mouth for you all to hear more of what these guys are capable of."

Volcanoes recently released its debut full-length, Heavy Hands. The drum-and-bass duo has been a fixture in St. Louis recently, making memorably energetic appearances this past weekend alone at the So Many Dynamos Foam residency and Eleven Magazine's street bash.
