TELESCREEN Signs to Tragic Hero Records


North Carolina’s Telescreen have just announced their signing to Tragic Hero Records. Telescreen, whose loose musical description includes experimental and ambient rock is populated by four ex-members of Codeseven including Eric Weyer (guitar), Jon Tuttle (bass), Matt Tuttle (drums), and James Tuttle (guitar) alongside vocalist Jared Draughon, formerly of Classic Case. Guitarists Eric Weyer said of the band “This is not an extension of Codeseven, at all. We are branching out and pushing the boundaries more with the newer stuff that we’re doing.”

“For us, it’s all about our live show; we’re really trying to stress that.” Weyer continued. “When we play we have a screen that’s in front of us complete with projectors and we have a light show. You can’t really see us until the lights kick in. When people watch it, it’s like they’re watching a movie, that’s what we’re trying to do. We are trying to bring a new way of looking at going to a show.” They will have plenty of chances to show off their live show as Telescreen will spend two weeks on the road with Dredg from October 30th to November 15th.

The band plan to release a multi-media CD/DVD on the label in 2009. Look for updates shortly at: .
