German metal legends Helloween have returned to its old label home, Nuclear Blast.
The band did release two albums with the label — 2000‘s The Dark Ride and 2003’s Rabbit Don’t Come Easy — and those efforts have since been reissued with bonus content.
Nuclear Blast is overwhelmed to bring the band back into the fold, a press release says.
“We are more than proud, that Helloween is part of the Nuclear Blast family again,” label owner Markus Staiger states. “All those years we had a friendship-like connection and ways crossed on a regular basis at concerts and festivals. Helloween, to us, is a matter of the heart. There’s not only the two records to mention, but an act that influenced me and many of our employees. Together there are big plans and we are looking forward to having another productive and successful cooperation.”
Adds vocalist Andi Deris says:
“As a label, Nuclear Blast is ‘heavy metal to the bone,’ and we are really looking forward to working together with a lot of familiar faces.”
