Loud & Proud Records is pleased to announce a worldwide partnership with American rock 'n' roll pioneers, The Steve Miller Band and Miller's new imprint Space Cowboy Records. Recorded at film producer George Lucas' infamous studios at Skywalker Ranch, BINGO! is the band's first studio album in 17 years. A true return to Miller's roots, BINGO! echoes his early years in the Chicago music scene and features carefully chosen and crafted tracks performed in distinctive Steve Miller Band fashion.

"With the continuing evolution of the music industry and all the new exciting opportunities that are available, I feel this is a perfect time to start a new record company and establish new innovative partnerships. I am looking forward to a long relationship with Roadrunner / Loud & Proud" says Miller of the new endeavor.

Early reaction from fans and industry insiders are comparing the album to Miller's 1968 masterpiece SAILOR. BINGO!, will be the first of two albums that were recorded together as a complete body of work, the second of which will be offered next year via the new label partnership.

"After many years of discussion and sharing ideas, the time has finally arrived for Loud & Proud and Steve Miller to work together," commented Loud & Proud President Tom Lipsky. "We are proud to be Steve's global label partner and excited to be involved with this landmark project."

The Steve Miller Band is one of the biggest selling recording, touring and catalog artists of all time, having sold more than 50 million albums worldwide throughout its career. SMB's Greatest Hits 74-78 compilation reached prestigious Diamond Award certification with sales of more than 13 million units sold.

Roadrunner Records President Jonas Nachsin comments "Loud & Proud has been gaining serious momentum in the past few months and now boasts a substantial roster with the addition of the incredible Steve Miller Band. Roadrunner is thrilled to be marketing an artist of Steve's legendary status along with our own diverse rock roster."

BINGO! was co-produced by Andy Johns (Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Van Halen), with artwork designed by the legendary Storm Thorgerson. These recordings feature longtime Steve Miller Band member Norton Buffalo, who sadly passed away in 2009.
