Baltimore rockers J-Roddy Walston and the Business have signed to Farifax/Vagrant Records, drummer Steve Colmus confirmed today.

The four-piece is in Los Angeles at the moment, working on a new album at Sound City Studios. They hope to finish the album, which is still untitled, by the end of the year. It could hit shelves as early as March or April 2010, according to Colmus.
"So our reign as "Baltimore's Best Unsigned Band" was mercifully short!," Colmus wrote. "Thanks for that mention by the way."J-Roddy Walston and the Business will be back in Baltimore for a New Year's Eve show at The Ottobar. For more information (and tickets), go here.
