BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KSM has been selected for this week's highly coveted iTunes Single of the Week, beginning today. “Read Between the Lines,” the first single and title track of the teen rock quintet’s debut album, is available as a free download on iTunes this week. In addition, the full album Read Between the Lines is available for digital purchase exclusively on iTunes starting today, one week prior to the physical album release date of September 22.
Currently wrapping a U.S. club tour opening for Mitchel Musso, KSM has been building momentum for the impending release of their debut. Written and produced by Matthew Gerrard and Robbie Nevil, recorded and performed entirely by KSM, Read Between the Lines is the debut CD for the all-female teen quintet. Together for two years, KSM was initially mentored by The GoGo's. KSM is: bassist Sophia Melon (18), drummer Kate Cabebe (18), lead guitarist Shae Padilla (18), rhythm guitarist Katie Cecil (16) and lead singer Shelby Cobra (16).
The band's 20-part reality-based web series, "KSM: Read Between the Lines Presented by ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses," premiered last month (www.teen.com/KSM and www.ksm.acuvue.com). From the executive producers of "Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream" and "Jonas Brothers 3D Concert Experience," the series documents the formation of KSM, the girls' personal and professional successes, and life on the road. On September 18, Jonas Brothers make a special appearance in the web series.
Most recently, on September 12 KSM and Mitchel Musso performed an online concert live from New York's Fillmore Auditorium with Ustream on Facebook and broke new ground by broadcasting in 16:9 HD. The event featured the concert and backstage interviews, and streamed live on both bands' Facebook® Pages using the Ustream on Facebook application. The broadcast resulted in nearly 200,000 total views and 47,000 viewer hours.
KSM’s Read Between the Lines will be available exclusively on iTunes September 15 and on September 22 wherever music is sold. For more information on KSM, please visit: http://www.myspace.com/ksmofficial. Media page: http://hyfnpromo.com/go/disney-records/ksm
