Bath Spa University Students Sign Record Deal

Four Bath Spa University commercial music students have signed their first major record deal after winning an international competition run by leading videogames company, EA Games. __The band, Showing Off To Thieves, was named European winner of the 2007 Burnout Bandslam, sponsored by EA Games. The competition received entries from more than 2,100 bands from all over Europe, and culminated in an intense public ranking process, with over 2,500,000 MySpace users participating, followed by final selection by an expert panel. The band will receive a demo recording deal in a collaboration between Virgin Records and EA and a chance to have their song included in a future 'Burnout' videogame. __Showing Off To Thieves consists of Bath Spa students Phil Maggs (bass), Tom Lloyd (drums), Andy Bradshaw (guitar), and Bath Spa graduate Andy German (voice). They formed in 2005 at Bath Spa University, and began recording together as part of the commercial music degree course, which also requires students to undertake a national tour to promote their work. The band signed their first independent record deal in 2006 with Bath-based independent record label Lockjaw records. _

Guitarist Andy Bradshaw said: "The commercial music course has given us the opportunity to develop our sound and get started on the live circuit, so when we graduate this summer we'll be able to launch straight into the music industry as a signed band." __Head of Department of Music at Bath Spa University Joe Bennett said: “Throughout their time here they [the band] have been relentlessly writing, rehearsing, recording and gigging - this success is the result of two years of intense hard work, and it's richly deserved."

_The band's winning track 'Everyone Has Their Secrets' is available on their MySpace page
