August 13 [14:00 EDT] -- Is Save Ferris' first place prize in this year's Grammy Showcase for unsigned bands a fluke, or do they actually have a future?
Apparently Epic Records is betting on the latter rather than the former, as the label is set to release the band's major label debut next month.
Another product of the Orange Country, California ska scene, Save Ferris will try to prove its mettle with "This Means Everything," its Epic debut which should hit stores on September 9. The band will further showcase its skills while opening for another So Cal ska outfit, Reel Big Fish, who are launching a headlining tour on September 14.
