Los Angeles power popsters the 88 has signed with major label Island/Def Jam Records despite their moderate success as a self-released independent act. The group has recently finished three songs in the studio working with producer Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds for inclusion on their major label debut. The band's music has been previously featured in the movie You, Me and Dupree, an episode of the television series How I Met Your Mother, and a number of commercials.
Praising the album's quality, producer "Babyface" says, "It was refreshing to go into the studio with a unique band that takes such pride in both their sound and their songwriting. The 88 are the real deal."
