Eastern Conference Champions Announce West Coast Tour Dates In Support Of New Album
Multiple Performances At SXSW Scheduled Speak-ahh Due Out April 26th

NEW YORK, NY - March 7, 2011 - Eastern Conference Champions are returning with their first album of new material in four years.  Speak-ahh will be released on April 26th on RockHampton Records.

Right around the release, the band will begin a west coast tour on April 20th starting in Santa Barbara, CA.  The band will also head to SXSW this year for five performances during SXSW.

The trio, which consists of Josh Ostrander, Greg Lyons and Melissa Dougherty, has kept quite busy since the release of their debut album (Ameritown) in 2007, releasing two critically acclaimed EP’s (Santa Fe & Akustiks).

Recorded in downtown Los Angeles, The ten-track album is a departure from the sound of their debut album.  “After we recorded Ameritown with Owen Morris, we had a hell of a time pulling off some of the songs live, it just got away from us in the studio,” Josh reflected.  “Since we began recording on our own, we always go into recording a song with a ‘are we gonna be able to pull this off live’ mentality.  We never put two guitars down when one will do the job.  We prefer the bones of it to an orchestra.  We love the rawness.”

Eastern Conference Champions made waves last year when they were tapped to contribute an exclusive song for the third installment of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.  The unsigned act was chosen from more than 400 bands competing for the coveted soundtrack slot, and the resulting song, "A Million Miles An Hour," received rave reviews and raised the band’s profile considerably.
