We are excited to announce the signing of New Cassettes to Secret Road! This marks a continuation of a great relationship which has secured placements on The Vampire Diaries and Switched At Birth.
New Cassettes is a five-piece band from Northampton, England who delivers a fresh blast of modern rock that is artful, edgy and infectious. They released Winterhead in April 2012 on N13 Records in partnership with MTV and received accolades from AOL Spinner, PureVolume, Filter, RCRD LBL and many more.
Evoking a fascinating blend of classic indie rock, pop and new wave, yet thoroughly 21st Century, the quintet have been leaving audiences swooning since 2005 when their spiky guitars go head to head with propulsive rhythms and hook-filled choruses. They are planning to release their next album this fall!

We're pleased to announce that we will be representing Communion Artists Bear's Den, Gabriel and the Hounds, Joe Banfi, Matthew and the Atlas (Communion Record's first ever signing!), Pale Seas, Pete Roe, Story Books, Three Blind Wolves, & Treetop Flyers with more artists to join the community in the future.
Communion was born in a West London basement bar in 2006, with the help of Ben Lovett (Mumford and Sons), Kevin Jones (Bear's Den) and producer Ian Grimble. Communion quickly grew into a flourishing community of musicians and fans alike, providing an independent platform for the freshest young artists in London's music circuit and beyond. Ben Howard and Michael Kiwanuka are long-time veterans of Communion's live shows, as well as recording artists with the label.
Communion Records was later founded in 2009 with the intent of promoting a close working family of artists who could develop at their own pace. Many of their releases involve Ben, Kevin and Ian in addition to other Communion artists to create the community vibe. Communion continues to prove its reputation as a tastemaker in the music industry also representing Gotye, Daughter and Foy Vance.
We're so excited to join forces with the Communion team, and you can learn more about Communion here!
