Chart-topping Aussie band ESKIMO JOE saw the U.S. debut release of their award-winning platinum album Black Fingernails, Red Wine via Rykodisc, in September, 2007
Hailing from the land-down-under, Eskimo Joe is one of Oz's most popular music acts today. Their stateside debut Black Fingernails, Red Wine is an out and out smash in their homeland, having skyrocketed straight to No. 1 upon its release in May 2006.
Among their many accolades, the quadruple-platinum selling album has earned the band an astonishing seven ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Awards) nominations, four of which were won in the categories of Best Single for the album's title track, Best Producers for their self-production efforts, Best DVD and Best Engineer (Matt Lovell). They also walked away with three WAMIs (West Australian Music Awards), including the award for Best Single. The radio singles "Black Fingernails, Red Wine," "Sarah," and "New York" all charted at Top 40 radio (#6, #12 and #26 respectively). Eskimo Joe has performed in front of crowds of over 40,000 alongside such artists as The Killers, Modest Mouse, Muse, Lily Allen and My Chemical Romance.
