It not only got them on SPIN and Alternative Press’ radar, but impressed Epitaph Records so much, they signed the band. Their follow up, Commit This To Memory enlisted Blink 182 member Mark Hoppus on production duties and saw the band rapidly expanding their fanbase and selling more than 300k copies of the album. Even If It Kills Me arrived in 2007 with production by Ric Ocasek, Adam Schlesinger and Eli Janney, and was the first Top 20 charting album of Motion City Soundtrack’s career by snagging the #16 spot on the Billboard 200. Their fourth album My Dinosaur Life was also the band’s major label debut – released on Columbia Records - and became their top charting album when it debuted at #15 on the Billboard 200. With a number of successful albums, critical praise and a vast fan base, and now returned to their home Epitaph, Motion City Soundtrack will continue to push boundaries with their new album due in June 2012.
