It’s been one of the worst kept rumors in metal, but finally, the confirmation has come in: Unearth are no longer free agents.
The band has signed to eOne Music for North America; Century Media will handle it in Europe.
“A new chapter has begun for Unearth as we have found a few new places to call home. By joining forces with eOne (North America), Century Media (Europe), Howling Bull (Japan) and 3Wise (Australia) we will have a more focused attack from some of the most well known and respected labels in the world,” says frontman Trevor Phipps.
Frankly, I’ve never been a fan. Not even one of their songs could I say I enjoy. Their painful; I keep expecting certain things to happen, only to be disappointed by the lack of ingenuity. But I am just one guy.
“We know this new beginning of sorts will bring bigger and better things for Unearth and our fans and we couldn’t be more excited for the future of all things Unearth.
“We are currently in the studio recording some of the most aggressive, anthemic and energized metal we have ever written and we look forward to unleashing it to you all when it is finished. Expect to hear more about our new album, release dates and future world wide touring plans later this summer.”
The upcoming record will be produced by the highly capable Mark Lewis, and will be out later this year.
If anyone can make them listenable, it’d be Mark. Or Jason Suecof.
