Rum Bum Records has announced the signing of SALIVA. The band — Bobby Amaru (vocals), Dave Novotny (bass), Paul Crosby (drums) and Wayne Swinny(guitar) — will enter the studio in January 2013 to begin recording its new album for a late spring release.
“The addition of SALIVA further expands our reputation of cultivating artists that have a unique sound and style,” said Luis Bacardi, owner of Rum Bum Records. “We are thrilled to continue to grow our artist portfolio with quality musicians and look forward to playing a significant role in the band’s continued success.”
Since forming in Memphis in 1996, SALIVA has produced a number of chart-topping hits and earned a Grammy nomination for “Best Hard Rock Performance” for their record “Your Disease”. A number of tracks from records have also been featured in major films, including “The Fast And The Furious” and “Talladega Nights” as well as successful games like Tiger Woods PGA.
“We want to sell 10 million records,” said SALIVA‘s frontman Bobby Amaru. “We are all looking forward to getting in the studio and recording an album that will do just that. In the end, what’s most important is coming out with songs that we’re excited to play, that our fans are excited to hear and that the combination of the two results in a great tour. That’s what it’s all about.”
SALIVA‘s last studio album was 2011’s “Under Your Skin”, which featured the Top 5 rock single “Never Should’ve Let You Go”.
Vocalist Josey Scott left SALIVA last year to pursue a solo Christian recording career.
