Scottish Indie Rockers The Law Plot U.S. Invasion
The Law's buzz-worthy debut album, A MEASURE OF WEALTH, was recorded at Sawmills Studios (the birthplace of Oasis' DEFINITELY, MAYBE) with producer Stan Kybert (Paul Weller, Massive Attack), and released in the United Kingdom last year on the band's very own label Local Boy Records. A MEASURE OF WEALTH will be released in North America in May, 2010. Potent and concise, the band's name pays homage to two very powerful forces of nature – the first being hometown Dundee's dormant volcano nicknamed "The Law" (a volcano in Scotland, who knew?!), and the second is a nod to one of the band's main influences, punk legends The Clash and their classic version of "I Fought The Law".
The Law's subversive anthems and hot-blooded performances have assaulted the UK press and commanded widespread support from XFM and BBC Music. Edith Bowman of BBC Radio 1 hails The Law as "Incredible, good rock n roll", while NME proclaims that "The Law are Dundee's new hope". The buzz has now gone worldwide with the inclusion of the band's single "Don't Stop, Believe" in the trailer for the major motion picture "The Men Who Stare At Goats" starring George Clooney (click here to check it out: www.youtube.com/thelawmusic), while another track from A MEASURE OF WEALTH, "The Man In The Moon," will be featured in the hit ABC Family Channel's show "Greek" on Monday, February 1st. The band's commanding sound also sparked the interest of legendary graphic artist John Pasche who went on to design the band's logo.
