Santa Monica, Ca – Takeover Records has announced the addition of Near Miss and Inspection 12 to their label roster.

Jacksonville artists Inspection 12 have been making great music since 1994. Their first large scale record, “In Recovery,” was released by Honest Don’s Barely Legal Recordings in May of 2001. Inspection 12’s influences range from punk to country, hard rock to classical. The band displays an incredible sense of maturity, which further validates that they’re far too talented to allow themselves to be pigeonholed.

Near Miss, based out of Austin, TX, was started by Max Béchard and Jeremy Hernandez, two former members of the band Bigwig. They have toured the U.S. several times with bands such as The Vandals, Goldfinger, Gob, Mest, Rise Against and The Lawrence Arms. Their previous album, “The Gentle Art Of Making Enemies,” was released on Fearless Records.

Takeover Records has been working to deliver great new music since its founding in Jacksonville, FL in 1997. The label has released albums from Yellowcard, Stole Your Woman, Craig’s Brother and HeyMike!, as well as a 3-Way compilation featuring Over It and Don’t Look Down.
