After a self-imposed studio exile this Winter and free from their contract from their previous label, New York’s Sam Champion are set to deliver on the promise of their acclaimed live act with the brand new album HEAVENLY BENDER. Written and recorded in Brooklyn basements, home studios and creaky barns, the band’s second effort shows a new sonic vision; an expansive range of sounds and songs that are poised to leave an indelible mark on mouse pads and year end playlists everywhere. Their first single, “Like a Secret”, leaked to Stereogum this Spring and had 6,500 downloads within a week. We like that! “Every so often, a band you think you have pegged will evolve from a plain old “good act” to an absolute force of nature. Meet Sam Champion… New lead off track, “Like a Secret” combines a summery mix of slide-guitars and tom-slapping verse beats into an easy blend of breeze and bombast,” exclaims Stereogum!

This New York City quartet is comprised of guitarist/vocalist Noah Chernin, drummer/vocalist Ryan Thornton, bassist/vocalist Jack Dolgen, and guitarist/vocalist Sean Sullivan, the band released its debut album, Slow Rewind, on Razor & Tie in September of 2005. A three-track EP, 'Be Mine Everyone', will be released in the UK October 1st, featuring album tracks “Be Mine Everyone” “Direct” and home demo “What if You Knew?” it's a testament to the melodic and energetic spirit of this talented New York band.
