LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts/ Earshot Media)
Favorite Gentlemen is an Atlanta-based artist community and record label started and run by Andy Hull (Manchester Orchestra, Bad Books, Right Away, Great Captain!) and Jeremiah Edmond (formerly of Manchester Orchestra) that has helped to develop and release music for Manchester Orchestra, Kevin
Devine, Bad Books; Right Away, Great Captain!, O'Brother, All Get Out, Harrison Hudson, Death On Two Wheels, and many more.
The label stands unique to many others, still carrying the spirit of community and friendship as its foundation. As a label and a community Favorite Gentlemen has always believed in "strength in numbers," working together pooling resources, relationships and knowledge to push each artist and the community as a whole forward.
It's in this spirit that the label is now launching its first ever official Favorite Gentlemen tour featuring four of the family's acts (All Get Out, Death On Two Wheels, Harrison Hudson and Junior Astronomers).
In celebration of the inaugural tour Favorite Gentlemen is partnering with Noisetrade.com to give away a sampler featuring music from the bands on the tour, plus other great FG artists. To download the free sampler, visit: http://www.noisetrade.com/thefavoritegentlemen.
