Exhorder Sign With Nuclear Blast Records

Exhorder have signed a new deal with Nuclear Blast Records and are planning to release a new album through the label. The effort will be the band’s first since 1992.

Vocalist Kyle Thomas commented:

“The excitement level of Exhorder being in contract negotiations once again is higher for us than we can express. Coming to an agreement with Nuclear Blast has inspired us to bring our writing to new heights. People still want to hear this band, as was evident in the reaction to our performances in 2018.

Nuclear Blast strongly wants to help facilitate this venture, and for that we are truly excited and grateful. I am looking forward to seeing what we can make happen together over the next few years. The roster at Nuclear Blast speaks for itself, as well as the presence of Monte Conner and Jaap Wagemaker on the team. Be on the lookout, because Exhorder is heading your way once again!”

Guitarist Vinnie LaBella added:

“What an incredible honor it is to be added to the Nuclear Blast family! We’ve had such a great year already, and now this! We are so proud and could not be in better company moving forward. We are excited for the future. We realize we turned in a couple of classics back in the day and it’s been 27 years since we released our last record. And while those past successes are notable, we feel in our hearts like this new record will be our first record, and we couldn’t have a better partner in NB to bring it to you. New management, New line up, new label, new record, new Exhorder!”

Exhorder Return, Announce February Shows

Exhorder have returned with a revamped lineup featuring founding members Vinnie LaBella and Kyle Thomas, along with Jason Viebrooks (Heathen), Marzi Montazeri (ex-Superjoint Ritual, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals), and Sasha Horn (Forbidden). The band will play “Slaughter In The Vatican” in full at St. Vitus Barbin Brooklyn, NY on February 9 and will then play “The Law” in full at the same venue the next night (February 10). They also have a February 12 show booked at Southport Hall in New Orleans, LA.

LaBella commented:

“Over our 30-year history, we have obviously had more than our fair share of struggles. Struggles that have broken us apart on several occasions. Whether those struggles were internal, external or both, no matter the situation, we always find are way back to one another. How? Why? It took me 30 years to realize it’s because the relationships run too deep, the songs are timeless, and the fans are ageless. It’s meant so much to us and so many others. And it’s for these reasons Exhorder can’t be broken, even by the hands that created it. Like it or not, love it or hate it, Exhorder is forever and it’s my duty, my honor and privilege to do it again!”

Thomas added:

“It would probably be best to never say never for the rest of my life, because I thought that this could not happen again. However, here we are one more time!

“I am extremely pumped to take the stage yet again with Exhorder to bring to life some of the most classic songs in thrash metal and hardcore history. We will put everything into it as always, doing our best to see to it that no one will ever walk away from an Exhorder show dissatisfied. We’re back!”
