Los Angeles modern rock band The Exies
have signed with Eleven Seven Music to release their forthcoming album, "A Modern Way Of Living With The Truth," the band's first studio album in two years. The Exies first two studio albums (Inertia
& Head for the Door
, Virgin Records), have yielded such hits songs as "Ugly" and "My Goddess." The new studio album on Eleven Seven Music will be part of the label's "upstreaming" business model with ADA and is slated for release in March of 2007. Eleven Seven's model was proven to work via the label's inaugural release (Buckcherry
