The band Usnea have inked a new recording contract with Relapse Records, people.
Relapse fucking Records!
The band’s working on a new album they’re looking to release through the label in late 2014.
Said the band:
“We are stoked and honored to sign with Relapse and join the ranks of fellow heavy acts (and buddies) Cough, Indian, Inter Arma, Primitive Man, Christian Mistress, Nux Vomica, Lord Dying, and so many more.
“Relapse has put out some incredible, seriously solid heavy albums over the past 20 plus years and we couldn’t be happier having them release our next album. On top of that, everyone at Relapse has been awesome and supportive and couldn’t be nicer folks.”
