Pallbearer Sign With Nuclear Blast, Premiere New Song “Atlantis”

Pallbearer have signed a new deal with Nuclear Blast Records. With this news, the band have also released a new song, titled “Atlantis,“ as part of the “Sub Pop Singles Club.” You can stream that and a newly released live version of “Thorns“ below:

Pallbearer said the following about signing with Nuclear Blast:

“We are very honored to announce that we have signed a worldwide record deal with Nuclear Blast. We had the great privilege of working with them on the European distribution of our previous album, and it was quite clear that this was the next logical step for us. We greatly look forward to continuing our work with Monte Conner and his legendary team at the label, as well as being included amongst a truly unparalleled group of some of heavy music’s greatest artists of the modern era.”

They also added the following about the new single:

“We’re very excited to finally be able to share another piece of new material with you. As many of you probably know by now, Pallbearer has always been very ‘album-oriented’ — when we are writing music, it’s often with the big picture in mind. However, we also thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to release pieces that might not necessarily fit into a larger album.

Thanks to the Sub Pop Singles Series, we were thrilled to have the chance to write a brand new song, ‘Atlantis‘, plus also document how ‘Thorns‘, a song from our previous LP had taken on a different bit of attitude after being roadworn for a couple of years.”

07/18 Oklahoma City, OK – 89th Street
07/19 Columbia, MO – Rose Music Hall

“Somehow this came by surprise and I know that sounds weird but we were so focused and excited about finishing the new album, that the paperwork did not really matter to us at that time! When we did realize that our contract with the label is due, it took us only some minutes to negotiate a new deal!

We are a part of the NUCLEAR BLAST family now since more than 15 years, we feel at home here, we trust each other in this monkey business and also many people that work for the label we call our friends.

So this re-signing is something that came very easy and natural. Working with the best label in METAL is still an honor cause they supported us thru the good and the bad times!

Une Misère Sign With Nuclear Blast, Premiere “Damages” Video

Une Misère have signed a new deal with Nuclear Blast Records. With this news, the band have also premiered a new video for their song “Damages.”

The group said the following about the song:

“‘Damages‘ is about being at your breaking point. It is about being at the very edge and falling over. ‘Damages‘ is about facing the fact that mental diseases may never be cured; although the person can get better, one may never be fully rid of it. Depression, anxiety, addiction and so forth – they will always be there. The shadows – they will always be there. They will follow you – into the grave.”

They also added the following about their new label:

“As a band we are more than excited to be signing with a label that has hosted many bands that we have listened to and loved since we started listening to heavy music. This signing will serve as a jump start to what we aim to achieve – We are nothing but humble for the opportunity and excited for what the future holds. This signing marks the beginning of a cooperation that everyone will know of. We aim for the world, and Nuclear Blast is going to help us get it.”

Exhorder Sign With Nuclear Blast Records

“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!”
