Relapse Records signs Inter Arma

Official press release: Relapse Records is extremely proud to announce the signing of Richmond, VA's Inter Arma. The group consisting of (T.J. Childers - Drums, Steven Russell - Guitars, Trey Dalton - Guitars, Mike Paparo - Vocals, Joe Kerkes - Bass) formed in 2006 and released their debut full-length Sundown via Forcefield Records in 2010. Combining a punk rock ethos with an esoteric blend of psychedelia, black metal, and doom/sludge, the quintet quickly developed a name for themselves in the underground through relentless touring and mesmerizing live performances. The band commented on the signing: "It's pretty crazy to think that we'll be tacitly associated with bands like Neurosis, Amorphis, Human Remains, Disembowelment, Dillinger Escape Plan, Incantation, Mastodon, et al. That's a pretty high standard to hold yourself to, but we'll give it our damndest." Additionally, the band recently released a brand new 12" EP entitled Destroyer via Toxic Assets Records which can currently be streamed at this location. They plan to finish recording their second full-length and Relapse debut later this summer for an early 2013 release. In the meantime, Inter Arma will be hitting the road in support of the release for a four week run. A complete listing of dates is included below: 9/11 New York, NY @ Knitting Factory w/ Pallbearer, Royal Thunder, Samothrace 9/12 Asbury Park, NJ @ Asbury Lanes 9/13 Philadelphia, PA @ Golden Tea House 9/14 Pittsburgh, PA @ House show 9/15 Columbus, OH @ Carabar 9/16 Chicago, IL @ Ultra Lounge 9/17 Minneapolis, MN @ Memory Lanes 9/20 Missoula, MT @ Missoula VFW 9/21 Seattle, WA @ Black Lodge w/ Bell Witch 9/22 Tacoma, WA @ 5th Dimension w/ Bell Witch 9/23 Bellingham, WA @ The Shakedown w/ Bell Witch 9/24 Portland, OR @ The Rotture w/ Bell Witch 9/25 Eugene, OR @ TBA w/ Bell Witch 9/27 Arcata, CA @ The Big Tree 9/28 Chico, CA @ Monstro's Pizza 9/29 Oakland, CA @ TBA 9/30 San Francisco, CA @ TBA 10/1 Fullerton, CA @ Sidebar w/Scott Kelly, Mike Scheidt 10/2 Las Vegas, NV @ TBA 10/3 Flagstaff, AZ @ House Show 10/4 Albuquerque, NM @ TBA 10/5 Denton, TX @ Rubber Glove w/ Baring Teeth 10/6 Austin, TX @ TBA 10/7 Houston, TX @ TBA 10/10 Greensboro, NC @ Buttery Day Ranch

dudes are the antithesis of pretention, maybe you should give them a listen before making broad claims

Fantastic band! Glad to see they're getting on a good label. Their description might make them sound pretentious but they're a fun and awesome band to see live!

^ these guys probably drink apple martinis, while discussing the latest fashion trends, with overexaggerated hand movements and their legs crossed over
