As has been previously reported, Lunasound Recording have finalized a US deal for Backdraft. The new American branch of UK indie label Abstract Sounds will start off with a couple of Lunasound’s American bands such as VALIS, Roadsaw and Electric Frankenstein, before releasing Here To Save You All sometime in February-March of 2003.

The band is currently considering possible modifications for this release. Management and bookings are also on the agenda. Hopefully this release will be backed by a proper tour!
