San Jose, Calif.-based SLG Publishing is getting into the music business with a side venture called Slab Yard Sound. Per a marketing email, they plan to release music created by their employees and relatives, as well as help local indie musicians in “developing, packaging and publishing their music all the while bringing the same energy, creativity and passion to the music scene that we have been putting into comics for the last 25 years.” Here’s the entire email:
The comic book industry is melting down around us, so naturally SLG Publishing’s next step should be to get into the music business. Figuring we would help turn out the lights on TWO separate industries, SLG today rolled out Slab Yard Sound Company.
Many of you have wondered where the cool music on our trailers have come from, well most of them were done in-house by our own stable of talented musicians/relatives. Slab Yard Sound is a company dedicated to those talented individuals giving them a place to showcase their talents.
SLG is also hoping to bring it’s production expertise to the local Indy music scene by helping musicians/artists in developing, packaging and publishing their music all the while bringing the same energy, creativity and passion to the music scene that we have been putting into comics for the last 25 years.
Visit the Slab Yard Sound Company website and you will find a load of free music to download. Keep an eye on the site (as well as this one) as we roll out new tunes and projects.
