Official press release: Relapse Records is proud to announce the signing of Pacific Northwest death/doom/sludge quartet Usnea. Formed in 2011, Usnea (Zeke Rogers - drums, Joel Williams - bass & vocals, Johnny Lovingood - guitar, Justin Cory - guitar / vocals) released their eponymous debut via Orca Wolf Records in 2013. Now the band has entered Haywire Studios with Jared "Fester" See to record their sophomore full-length and Relapse debut which is planned for a late 2014 release. The group commented on the signing: "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."
