Legendary Thrash Metal band HIRAX has inked a worldwide deal with Steamhammer/SPV.
HIRAX front man, Katon W. De Pena, on signing to SPV: “We are honored to now be a part of the SPV Records family and we appreciate their total support of our thrash metal music. Together we are going to bring the heavy metal music world one hell of a skull crushing album in 2013″.
Steamhammer/SPV A&R Olly Hahn adds:” It´s an honor to have Katon and Hirax on our label. Through all the years Katon held the flag of metal high and also played places of the earth where nobody would. It´s time for another raging violence!”
HIRAX will enter the studio early 2013 for a release in September followed by a world tour.
Stay tuned for more info.
As they wrap up an extraordinary year, Sin City rock group OTHERWISE have already started setting up 2013 to be just as great. The band is proud and excited to announce they will be hitting the road with STONE SOUR and PAPA ROACH this January. Leading up to the New Year, OTHERWISE is currently out on the road playing a number of shows, including radio shows and dates with 3 DOORS DOWN and DAUGHTRY. A full list of dates can be seen below.
OTHERWISE released their debut album TRUE LOVE NEVER DIES earlier this year, where it landed at #2 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and has since sold nearly 25,000 albums. The band has had widespread radio success with their first single “Soldiers,” which became the first song by an unsigned artist to ever occupy the #1 spot on the Sirius Octane channel. The track peaked at #19 at Active Rock radio and has sold over 75,000 singles to date, making the band the top selling debut rock act of 2012.
OTHERWISE recently released their newest single “I Don’t Apologize (1000 Pictures)” and since, the track has been rising up the charts at Active Rock Radio. A heartbreak anthem, the single tells the familiar story of a bitter break up and a lyric video for the song can be seen here.
