One of Canada’s newest and upcoming metal labels Misfortune Records is proud to announce the signing of Toronto’s hardcore metal act “A DISTANCE FROM” to their rising roster (SkumLove, Hebron). A DISTANCE FROM is set to record their debut EP titled Transitions at Metal Works Studios in Toronto, ON in June 2009 followed by a soon to be announced tour and EP release date for the fall.

“I’m looking forward to exposing ADF’s talents to the world, their sound and influence grabs their audience and is pushing forward the Toronto hardcore scene.” says Misfortune Records founder Chris Comete.

¬†For the last four year’s ADF has been incubating their talents and have been embraced by fans for their compulsion to deliver an outstanding performance both on and off stage.

“We’re really excited on joining the Misfortune family, they’ve been a huge supporter of the underground hardcore scene in Toronto and I have so much respect for Chris Comete who has been pushing the scene further over the last few years.” says ADF’s front man Troy. “I can’t wait to get in studio and scream my lungs out for this EP. It’s going to be a jaw dropper.”

A Distance From is a melting pot of influences ranging from Biggy Smalls, Pantera and Deftones. The band has been playing with some of Toronto’s well known Underground Hardcore/Metal bands including The Fitzpatrick Incident, Deterrence, On Burning Shores as well as regional bands such as I Wrestled a Bear Once and Arise And Ruin. The group conveys a sound for fans of Misery Signals, Between the Buried and Me and Acacia Strain.
