Hail to The Cab! Las Vegas-Based Band Set to Unleash Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen Debut; Release Preceded by North American Tour Dates Alongside Cobra Starship and We The Kings; "WHISPER WAR" Arrives April 29th

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 29, 2008) - Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen recording group The Cab has unveiled details of its eagerly awaited debut album, entitled "WHISPER WAR." The album -- which includes the online smash, "I'll Run" -- will arrive in stores and at all digital retailers on April 29th.

"WHISPER WAR" was recorded late last year with Matt Squire (Cute Is What We Aim For, All Time Low) producing and additional production by Patrick Stump (Fall Out Boy). The album expertly melds The Cab's avowed love for the soulful pop stylings of Justin Timberlake and Michael Jackson, with a punk and rock 'n' roll sensibility informed by such bands as Blink-182 and The Bled.

Signed to Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen on the recommendation of labelmates Panic At The Disco, the Las Vegas-based quintet quickly made a regional name for itself with its piano-infused modern pop-rock sound. The Cab then exploded throughout the online community, with its initial demo version of "I'll Run" logging more than one million plays on the band's MySpace page (www.myspace.com/thecab).

The Cab has now drawn national attention for its fresh sound and vision, with Alternative Press declaring it to be one of the "100 Bands You Need To Know" in its upcoming April issue. In addition, the band was featured in Blender's annual "Hot Report."

Currently on the road with fellow Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen recording group Cobra Starship on "The Really Really Ridiculously Good Looking Tour," The Cab has slated a full-tilt schedule for the foreseeable future. Next, the band will herald the release of "WHISPER WAR" with a spring trek alongside We The Kings -- dubbed the "Long Hair We Don't Care Tour" -- kicking off March 26th at Gainesville, Florida's 1982 Bar (see itinerary below). Also on the agenda are festival appearances at Austin, Texas's annual South By Southwest extravaganza in mid-March, and an eagerly awaited appearance at the upcoming Bamboozle, set for May 3rd at New Jersey's Meadowlands.
