Build-up an electro-pop duo with as much radio appeal as San Jose's the Limousines -- whose single "Very Busy People" got lotsa love from Live 105's airwaves -- and you're bound to get somewhere. This year's single "Internet Killed the Video Star" took the band to even larger audiences. And surely, opening for Weezer's big Memories Tour last month in S.F. didn't hurt.
So yeah, we're not totally surprised that the Limousines today announced a deal with Dangerbird Records, the Los Angeles label home to Silversun Pickups, Minus the Bear, Hot Hot Heat, and Fitz and the Tantrums. They should have a new record out on the label next year; details are yet to be announced, but we'll let you know when we hear.
