with this information from the Getaway's mailing list: "Well, The Getaway is proud to announce, "We have signed to Epitaph Records!" The boys flew out to Cali. over the past week to finish up the deal, and to soak up some rays. They just wanted to say thank you to all the fans that have believed in them all these years. This is what they had to say:

We're really stoked to be on Epitaph. We're kind of still in disbelief. We feel it's quite an accomplishment because we've never released an album, never toured, and only really have a handful of songs. Right now we're focusing on writing material for our debut album. Epitaph is an amazing label and we're honored to be working with them. Also, the song "promise" will now be available for full download at www.mp3.com/thegetaway."

From our sources this has been in the works for the past month or so. We're also quite pleased to learn from someone higher up in Epitaph that this older news article that was submitted by XxLoserDanxX helped bring the band to the E's attention... `Nuff said...
