Flotsam And Jetsam Return To Metal Blade
Posted by Chris Harris on February 19, 2013 in New Records, NewsThat’s right, people.
Phoenix, Arizona’s Flotsam and Jetsam have returned to Metal Blade Records to release their new album, Ugly Noise.
You can hear the lead single and title track streaming at the end of this post.
Ugly Noise is the band’s eleventh full-length album, and their first release on Metal Blade since 2001.
The record also heralds the return of original members Michael Gilbert on guitar and Kelly David Smith on drums, who hadn’t recorded with the band since High in 1997.
Commented Smith: “We have just inked a distribution deal for the release of Ugly Noise through Metal Blade Records.
Ugly Noise will be released worldwide in late March/early April of 2013.
“It was the obvious choice for us after our longstanding relationship and Metal Blade’s 30-year history of metal,” Smith says. “You can’t match what they can do with 30 years of experience behind them. We are excited and looking forward to working with Metal Blade in 2013.”
