Shane Told, vocalist of Silverstein recently announced the formation of Verona Records. Told explained:

I've started a label not as a business venture, or to gain anything for myself. I see amazingly talented bands all over the world, and so many of them have no direction on what to do on the business side of things. I've started this label to guide these bands in the right direction, and help provide them with the finances they need to really give themselves the best shot at playing music full time.

The first signing for the label is Oakville, Ontario's Dead and Divine which Shane describes as "very metal." The label will be distributed by Sonic Unyon in Canada with a US distributor to be announced shortly.
