Press Release

"

Sarathan Records is proud to announce the signing of Seattle's *Feral Children

*. This high-energy indie-rock band brings a new dimension and aesthetic to

Sarathan's already eclectic roster, with their wild range of experimental

explorations and explosive live show. Their debut album, *Second to the

Last Frontier*, was self-released locally to overwhelming praise and will

receive its proper US retail release summer 2008 through Fontana/Universal

and international digital release through IODA.

Produced by *Scott Colburn* (*Animal Collective*, *Arcade Fire*), the album

draws upon and expands from their diverse set of influences. Comparisons to

*Animal Collective* and early-era *Modest Mouse* are good starting points,

but don't fully recognize Feral Children's complete range. Local press has

been nothing short of enthusiastic leading to great optimism for 2008.

- "The future is now for the Feral Children" - *John Richards, KEXP*

- "Second to the Last Frontier is one of the more memorable Northwest

albums of 2007." - *Don Yates, Music Director at KEXP*

- "Perfect, absolutely perfect."(4 ½ stars) - *Katie Sauro, Seattle

Sound Magazine*

Feral Children may have joined Sarathan's 'nest', but they will never be

tamed or domesticated. Catch Feral Children in Austin this March where they

will be playing *multiple SXSW parties*! More information can be found at

www.myspace.com/feralchildrenseattle and www.sarathan.com.
