We wanted to take a moment to congratulate one of the bands we’re worked with, unitcode:machine for the recently-announced signing to the great label, COP International. They join the likes of Stabbing Westward and other great acts. I’m confident that Christian and COP will take great care of them! Here’s their announcement….
COP International is proud to add unitcode:machine to our lineup of outstanding bands
The Texas Electro act has been on our radar since James Perry / Ashes Fallen recommended them in 2020. Chris Hall ( Stabbing Westward ) sending us some of the tracks he produced for unitcode:machine next album sealed the deal.
The story of how Eric (u:m) and Chris got to know each other is as American as apple pie with a Chicago twist:
At the 2021 Cold Waves Festival, Eric had the opportunity to speak briefly with Chris about the fact that Stabbing Westward’s success had inspired him to pursue his passion for the genre. During the conversation, Cold Waves security came up and notified everyone that there was an active shooter incident and that they needed everyone to move to the alley next to the Metro, where Cold Waves was held. Eric figured since their lives were on the line now would be the perfect time to ask Chris if he would be interested in producing unitcode:machine’s next album. Much to his surprise, Chris agreed and the rest is history (in the making)
“unitcode:machine is excited to join the COP International family. My first experience with the label was from purchasing Battery’s album Aftermath at my local Best Buy as a teenager, and having the opportunity to be part of the history of a label that influenced me so much is a dream realized. ”
