Unearth previously announced they were writing the follow-up to 2014's Watchers of Rule with LGND and ex-The Acacia Strain guitarist Daniel "DL" Laskiewicz. Now a slew of bigger announcements have come from the band, mainly that they've signed with Century Media Records.
Unearth has hit the studio with Fit For An Autopsy guitarist and producer Will Putney (Gojira, Every Time I Die), and Killswitch Engage's guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz will be producing drums for the album.
"For three decades Century Media have been a highly trusted and leading force in Heavy music and we are proud to further our partnership with them to a Worldwide level. We saw their passion for music, dedication to promotion, ability to help secure touring/festival opportunities and the face to face personal relationships bands desire from labels from the European team during their release of our last album ‘Watchers of Rule’, so we know CM is the right worldwide home for us to bring everyone what’s next in all things Unearth."
We want to thank everyone at Century Media for bringing us into the fold to partner with a label that has such a rich history in Heavy Metal and Hardcore while also continuing to be at the top of the label game. We’ll see you all this summer starting on Warped Tour and continuing far beyond with worldwide touring on our new album.”
The band will release the new album sometime late this summer or early fall. Don't forget to catch the band on the final Warped Tour this year as well.
