Known worldwide for founding and running Trustkill Records since 1994, New Jersey native Josh Grabelle has launched a brand new record label and publishing company, Bullet Tooth. Best known for his A&R and marketing successes with hardcore and metal bands Bleeding Through, Hopesfall, Walls Of Jericho, Bullet For My Valentine, Throwdown, Poison The Well, Terror, It Dies Today, Eighteen Visions, and more, Grabelle has sold over 2 million albums worldwide.
Aligning themselves with only the most forward thinking partners and distributors, Bullet Tooth will instantly be a force to be reckoned within the independent music community. “We are extremely excited to begin working with Bullet Tooth and their fresh approach to the global music market,” commented Dave Zierler, EVP & GM INgrooves/Fontana. “They have a loaded release schedule and all the tools in place to maximize opportunities and quickly establish the Bullet Tooth brand.”
Rounding out the international team excited for this new venture are distributors in Europe, UK, Japan, Australia, Brazil, South Africa, and more. Grabelle said, “We have surrounded ourselves with a network of partners across the globe who believe in what we do, what our bands are doing, and can assist us in our goals to develop our artists to be self-sufficient touring machines who can make a living off doing what they love.”
Bullet Tooth has also joined forces with powerhouse publishing company Primary Wave Music to administer their catalog of compositions and secure music in soundtracks, TV, film, video games, and more. The synergy between Grabelle and Primary Wave Music has been fantastic, already having worked on successful projects together like the “Saw VI Soundtrack” (2009) and “8 Films To Die For” (2008). Expect to see new and exciting projects from this partnership in 2013 and beyond.
You can expect more of the genre-defining hardcore, metal, and rock that Grabelle has been known for introducing to the world. In 2013 there will be new albums from Death Ray Vision, NightShade, Serianna, I, Omega, Dead Icons, Affiance, Throw The Fight, and more surprises.
We are always on the lookout for music that is original, creative, and compelling. If you think you have it and you are HARD WORKING and will sacrifice your “9 to 5″ for a life on the road, then we may be interested in your band!
