History[edit]

Formation and Sign Here, Here and Here[edit]

Founded by Margera, Rota and Bone in 2006, The Company Band originally formed as an outlet for friends to jam together. Their initial recordings were laid down for the band's 2008's EP "Sign Here, Here, And Here". It quickly sold through its limited pressing and has continued to be a popular digital seller since the release. Restricted Release later pressed it on a special ten-inch available exclusively through the label's Amazon store. The vinyl pressing features exclusive artwork and is hand-numbered; limited to 1,000 copies.
