Finnish melodic death metallers RE-ARMED have inked a deal with Swedish Black Lion Records. The new, 4th album comes out worldwide in June 2020. Tour dates will lead and follow the release.
Below a statement from the band:
“Throughout the spring and beginning of winter we have been producing and recording new songs for forthcoming yet untitled album. This album will be more dramatic, powerful, and melodic as we promised earlier. In the end of 2018, the single “Built to Last” gave to audience hint about what has been cooking in our stew lately. We continued to discover more about these ingredients. Upcoming release will definitely open new doors for the band. And about the record deal, Olivers attitude, professionalism and genuine love for music made an instant impact on us. We are convinced that this alliance will lead us to even greater achievements in the future.”
Oliver Dahlbäck, Head Of Black Lion Records:
“We are excited to welcome our first ever Finnish band into Black Lion Records. Re-Armed reached out to us early 2019 and by then it became quite clear that this was indeed a band that had gone behind our radar. While Re-Armed’s music influences can strongly be traced to it’s root influences from Arch Enemy, At The Gates, upon hearing their music video “Built to Last” we were instantly impressed and has since the start of 2019. The band is currently in the studio recording their new album set for worldwide release in the start of summer 2020. We are always looking to expand our horizons and Finland has certainly been a hotspot for metal in the past years, and a area we truly wanted to reach into so we are very excited to work with Re-Armed on their new record.
Re-Armed has toured heavily across the European and Asian soil ever since 2002 and have toured and supported bands such as INSOMNIUM, SUFFOCATION, ORIGIN, CRYPTOPSY, CATTLE DECAPITATION & DECREPIT BIRTH to name a few. And are already getting ready for 2020 tour plans.”
