Championed by the respected former-Kerrang DJ Emma Scott & managed by Liza Buddy of Chaos & Bedlam, October Sky has already begun to get a foothold in the UK & Rocksector is delighted to now become involved with helping the band take its' next significant steps forward by releasing "The Aphotic Season" into UK & Europe.
The band is due to showcase at the Great Escape music festival in Brighton on 12th May, whilst UK Tour dates are in planning & will be announced soon, as the band will be fully promoting the new record with an extended stay in the UK for most of 2012.
