[press release] New York City based independent rock label TEE PEE Records has announced plans to showcase at two of North America's most celebrated music festivals in the coming weeks. On Thursday, September 22, TEE PEE will proudly showcase an array of its artists at the 10th annual POP MONTREAL Festival, an annual music festival occurring in Montreal, Quebec. Artists slated to appear include Canadian psychedelic rockers QUEST FOR FIRE, fast-rising Brooklyn stargazers NAAM, Toronto hardcore punks BURNING LOVE and Brooklyn "astral metal" band ELKS.

"one of the leading indie labels specializing in stoner rock and doom metal" - AOL MUSIC
"Tee Pee earned high marks for early, seminal releases from drone rockers Sleep and High on Fire, along with weirdos Brian Jonestown Massacre... Tee Pee's latest signings are collectively infused with layers and sonic textures usually absent from the endless noodling of some stoner effusium." - LA WEEKLY
