St. Louis-Minneapolis hybrid Voight-Kampff has moved up the big(ger) leagues of the DIY realm. It's just been announced that the band is the newest addition to one of Canada's most successful/relevant DIY labels, Deranged Records (home to bands like Culo, No Class, Wild Child, Brain Tumors, White Lung, Career Suicide and formerly Fucked Up -- among many others). The post/gloom punk band has finally gotten a break (har har) after previous label troubles, a name change (formerly Run Down), and traveling back and forth between the two cities since 2005. Joe Sulier -- frontman/keeper of the haunting and at times even Ian Curtis-esque vocals -- seems anxiously excited.

"Now that we've got this new record in the works for Deranged, there's definitely more pressure and obligation to play more than one show a year, which I think we're really looking forward to. This summer should see a lot more from us on the live end."
