Tori Amos has announced that the debut album, Top Hats and Scary Tales from The Adventures Of… will be the first album released on her recently launched record label Transmission Galactic.
While Amos will continue to release her own current projects through Deutsche Grammophon/Mercury Classics, she will waste no time in making the grandiose and intricately executed album from The Adventures Of… available to the band’s fans. The album will be released immediately digitally and the UK based band will head to the states this summer for select tour dates.
The glammed-up indie-rock trio, The Adventures Of… scored the first signing to Tori Amos’ record label via a feat of utmost ingenuity. Upon learning that the multi-platinum, eight-time-Grammy-nominated pianist/singer/songwriter was seeking artists for the label, frontman Adam Hanington gathered repurposed leather, wood, and brass to handcraft, a book-like vessel that would hold the band’s demo CD and a letter to Amos.
