"Red Bull gives you wings," as the energy drink company's slogan goes. As it turns it out, Red Bull also has its own record label. Provo band The Aces is hoping that slogan applies to them, too.
The Aces have signed a contract with Red Bull Records, it was announced Friday morning. The signing comes on the heels of the band's latest single, "Stuck," which gained major traction over the summer through mentions on BuzzFeed and Nylon, as well as the song's inclusion on a number of popular Spotify playlists. (The song currently has nearly 1 million streams on Spotify.)
Band members Cristal Ramirez, Katie Henderson, McKenna Petty and Alisa Ramirez have been playing together since their early teenage years, and gained a sizable local following under the moniker The Blue Aces, playing the popular Rooftop Concert Series multiple years.
Red Bull Records is based in Hollywood and launched in 2007. Most of the acts on Red Bull Records are mid-level, indie-type bands. The label, however, does have a heavy hitter in electronic rock band AWOLNATION, which has had multiple high-charting singles such as "Sail" and "Burn It Down" and currently has more than a million followers on Facebook.
