Great news!! The girls have signed with Red Light Management!! Read below:
Aly & AJ Michalka, collectively known as 78violet, have signed with Jonathan Shank and Bruce Flohr at Red Light Management. The duo have been working on their first record in 6 years with producer David Kahne. ”We’re thrilled to introduce 78violet (formerly know as “Aly & AJ”) under Redlight Management. We’re honored to be represented by such a successful and forward thinking firm aimed towards artistry and longevity,” the duo said. They have also produced a video for their forthcoming single “Hothouse’ to be released later this summer under their production company “Violet House”.
Both girls have recently been featured in high profile film & tv projects with Aly starring in Bandslam, Easy A, and the hit CW show Hellcats, as well as costarring in the feature The Roommate. AJ has also been busy and co-starred in The Lovely Bones, Secretariat and Super 8. In 2013, AJ stars in the Lionsgate feature Grace Unplugged as well as the indie film Jesus In Cowboy Boots. This year Aly will star in the indie films Sequoia and Killing Winston Jones. She also makes a cameo appearance in Grown Ups 2.
Their last release, “Insomniatic,” sold over 2 million copies worldwide and spawned their platinum single, “Potential Breakup Song,” which to date has garnered over 45 million views on Youtube. Since becoming 78violet, they’ve managed to accumulate a significant social media footprint. This will be their first record released under the 78violet moniker. Aly & AJ continue to be represented by CAA and Principato-Young Entertainment. They currently reside in Los Angeles where they were born and raised.
Hey everyone!! Four songs off of 78violet’s unreleased Hollywood Records album have been leaked! The songs that were leaked are Walk Alone Tonight (my favorite I think!), Bullet, Lovesick, and The Edge. It’s great to hear these songs! Check them out below:
Hey guys…so we know it’s been quiet in the 78violet camp but we want to first off thank you for sticking with us. We have some big news and wanted to make sure you hear it first.
Now that it’s official, we can tell you we’re no longer a part of Hollywood Records. What does that mean exactly??? Now we have the freedom to take 78violet in the direction we want. We’re writing and recording new music and are really excited on what’s next.
So…what is next? As for the album we recorded for Hollywood, honestly, we don’t foresee it ever being released. But…we are continuing to write and record new songs that we hope you’ll love as much as we do.
We’re going to be taking the Aly & AJ website down in the meantime which means the current message board will be removed and the accounts you created on the site will be put on hold. Yes…major bummer. But we’ll have a new message board and a new temporary site up in a few days that will serve as our main communication with you for the time being.
As always, you can get a hold of us on Twitter or Facebook.
We love you and are excited to share the new 78violet with you. Xoxo.
