San Francisco rockers Stroke 9, have officially announced their independence from Universal Records, and their plans to release a new album independently. 

"For those of you who haven't heard, we are no longer with Universal Records. And since we are no longer with them, we are no longer confined to the terrible structure of their server, news, and message board programs. So now we can do things like color. The little things that make me happy.  So most importantly, what's happening with the band? Well, I'll post more in the diary section, but basically, the new album is written and pretty much recorded. So there will be new music soon! Touring right now is pretty much locally in the Bay Area, until it's done. But things are picking up again, so keep checking back to the site." 

You can hear Stroke 9's first single "Please Don't Leave Me Out" and vote for it right now on the Alternative Addiction Top 20. 

Stroke 9 released two albums with Universal records, the first "Nasty Little Thoughts" scored the radio hits "Little Black Backpack" and "Letters".  Two years later the band released "Rip It Off" which may have been the bands best record, but suffered from poor promotion.  The album still scored two big hits on Alternative Addiction with the tracks "Latest Disaster" and "Vacuum Bag".
