With the success of the two previous EPs, "Borne EP" and "Souls on Satellite," Borne set to release "Loss of Signal" Feb 13th via iTunes worldwide. To their amazement, the record placed within the top 20 across a number of countries, including taking the #10 spot on the Billboard digital charts in the US with no US label backing and no outside promotion other than iTunes.Â
On the 23rd of Febuary Loss of Signal was sitting in the top 20 on the Amercian Billboard Digital charts www.billboard.com as well as being catapulted into the TOP 50 in Japan and New Zealand, the TOP 20 in the UK and Canada, and the TOP 10 in the USA, Australia and France on iTunes. With the single getting airplay on stations in the USA like Indy 103.1 and securing deals with advertisers and films in the USA, the word on Borne is certainly starting to circulate with powerful decision makers.
After a recent news article in which the giant EMI clamed to have lost millions of physical sales due to downloads and the recent Grammy awarded to Australian band Wolfmother, Michael Stangel, A+R for Borne's Indy Label Jellyfish said "It's a nice place to be right now. The phone has not stopped ringing and the offers are coming in at a rapid pace. There is talk of the band having one of its singles on the soundtrack for a major Hollywood blockbuster sequel, but I can't say anymore right now."Â
Borne is set for another busy year touring, with talk of a European tour in May and a possible trip to the USA in 2007 to promote "Loss of Signal."
