Grand Rapids, MI trio Jowls have joined the Tiny Engines roster, and the band’s new EP Cursed will finally see a release date this fall via the label in digital and 10-inch vinyl formats. The band originally signed to Doghouse Records
last May, but are now off the label. Bassist John Harmon shed some light on the situation in an exclusive comment to Punknews.org:
First and foremost, thank you to everyone that ordered ‘Cursed’ the first time ‘round. We apologize for any inconveniences and appreciate your patience in seeing this record come to fruition. Sometimes unexpected delays present themselves and in this case, it became clear that Doghouse and Jowls didn’t understand each others’ intentions. It was a bad fit that ultimately ended in both parties moving in opposite directions.
While it was an unfortunate situation, we absolutely feel this was for the best. We appreciate the work Doghouse did for Jowls over our short history, but with that said, we couldn’t be happier to be working with Tiny Engines. We’ve all had ties to Will, Jeff and Chuck through past bands and when we mentioned what happened with Doghouse, they took an immediate interest in releasing the record. It felt like a natural fit on all levels and we couldn’t be more excited about seeing this project come to light.
