It was announced today that Brazil’s SEPULTURA have signed with Nuclear Blast Records. The band, who this year mark their 25th anniversary, will be releasing their follow-up to last year’s A-Lex sometime next year.
Guitarist Andreas Kisser commented on the signing:
“We are happy to be at Nuclear Blast, especially in the year we are celebrating 25 years of history, and it is a great honour for us to join forces with the most metal label in the world. I am sure this will be a great journey for both of us and we are already working on new material while on the road. Let’s go for another 25 years!”
Nuclear Blast A&R Manager Jaap Wagemaker added:
“Yes, you got that right! Another great thrash band has joined the Nuclear family! We have been following the band around Andreas and Derrick for quite some time now and every time when we saw them play live we were equally impressed by the sheer energy that they create on stage!
“After inviting the band to come to Donzdorf and having some talks with them, we soon found out that we are all on the same page regarding what would be best for the future of SEPULTURA.”
The band recently embarked on a European tour where they will be through the end of August.
