                  Out September 25th on Triple Crown Records

The Secret Handshake aka BAPE wearing, emo-tronic sounding, laptop extraordinaire Luis
Dubuc will release his debut full length One Full Year September 25th on Triple Crown Records.
One Full Year was produced by up and coming the up and coming production team known as
Ocelot and is the follow up to the March 2007 EP Summer Of '98 which featured TSH remixes
from Spank Rock, P.O.S., The Toxic Avenger and Dillinger Escape Plan.

One Full Year is a diverse pop album that sees The Secret Handshake experimenting with
beats ranging from electro to house to hip hop to r&b. Luis is a product of his influences, if you
asked him who he looks up to artistically he'd tell you Mouse on Mars, Justice, Kanye West, John
Legend, Kenna and Death Cab. Ever heard something that sounds like all of those artists put
together before? Didn't think so...

U-MYX, an interactive music format that lets users make personalized mixes of major artists
recordings without requiring any special knowledge or equipment, ran a promotion/contest with
The Secret Handshake around the EP and was absolutely floored by the fans' reactions. Their
'Summer Of '98' remix contest outperformed almost all of the other artists they've run these things
with like Lily Allen, Imogen Heap and Hard-Fi. Oliver Barnes, President of U-MYX had this to say:

"The U-MYX project that we did The Secret Handshake shattered all our expectations. The scale
of uptake from his fanbase is only challenged by projects we've done with Paul McCartney and
Depeche Mode. Luis is a truly unique and competitive contender for the alt pop crown."

The Secret Handshake has spent the majority of 2007 on the road as he's toured with
hellogoodbye, All Time Low and Hit The Lights to name a few. TSH recently was tapped for his
first ever remix, the hellogoodbye track "All Of Your Love."
