Plus the band have signed to Ronson's label

Mark Ronson is set to produce the second album by The Rumble Strips.

The band have signed to Ronson‘s record label, Allido Records. The album is set to be released in spring 2009.

In a statement Ronson explained that he first became aware of The Rumble Strips when he heard their cover of Amy Winehouse‘s ‘Back To Black’, the original of which Ronson produced.

“I came across The Rumble Strips through their cover of ‘Back To Black’, and Amy and I agreed it was kind of better than our own,” he said.

“I picked up their album and fell in love with it,” he continued. “Then I decided I wanted to sign them to my label and work on their next album. It was really as straightforward as that. We’re all very excited about this.”
