J. Roddy Walston and the Business sign to ATO Records

J. Roddy Walston and the Business, the Baltimore rock quartet, have signed to ATO Records, according to a press release. The band joins a roster that includes Alabama Shakes, My Morning Jacket, Drive-By Truckers and more.

The group's first and currently untitled release for ATO will drop this summer. J. Roddy and Co. will soon head to Georgia to record with Grammy-winning producer Mark Neill.

The band has a 12-date tour lined up for the end of April and beginning of May, but the closest it comes to Baltimore is Charlotte, N.C.

J. Roddy Walston and the Business' most recent full-length album (a self-titled record) was released on Vagrant Records in July 2010.
