On June 8, 2011, Rotten Records announced that they would be signing with the Orlando band Confused Little Girl. Rotten Records supports and is home to at least 33 extreme metal and hardcore acts. Confused Little Girl is among the newest to sign a contract with them.
Though this is the first record deal for Confused Little Girl, it is not their first album. The band previously recorded three albums, according to Orange Amps. Their most recent album, Southern Gentlemen, was released on January 22, 2011, and they sold-out their CD release show for that album at the Social in Orlando, FL. The band’s website confirms that the first album that Rotten Records will release will be the rerelease of Southern Gentlemen. The album will be available this September.
To promote their new album, Confused Little Girl is teaming up with Swamp Sitters for the Behold the Broken Eardrums Tour. According to their website and sister fanbridge site, the tour will have over 200 stops. The tour will commence in July with 20 East Coast dates. The dates and venues of the first leg of the tour, borrowed from their site, can be viewed below.
Confused Little Girl is made up of four musicians who consider themselves a “deep fried southern swamp rock band.” They formed in 2005 and have toured throughout much of the continental United States. They have opened for underground rock acts such as Stinking Lizaveta, Artimus Pyledriver, Alabama Thunderpussy, Dark Castle, Abdullah, Earthride and more. They have also performed at the House of Blues and Hard Rock Live, as well as on the radio, including Orlando’s 1041 FM WTKS and 101.1 FM WJRR.
Their album Southern Gentlemen includes 12 tracks, which can be viewed on Music Bay. (The songs are no longer available for download, as they will soon be available from Rotten Records.) The themes of their music include drinking whiskey, murder, and selling your soul to Satan. One review of the album (by Jake Ball and Bill Goodman of The Soda Shop) called their music “heavy in all the senses that one would expect.” The authors described the songs as “catchy and have you nodding your head in unison to the rifts.”
Their music can be previewed on their website.
