Defeater signs with Epitaph Records
Massachusetts melodic hardcore outfit Defeater has officially signed with Epitaph Records. Formed in 2004, the band has previously released several albums with Bridge Nine Records. Defeater had the following to say about the deal: "In case you haven't figured it out yet, we are honored to join an amazing legacy of bands and work with the exceptional people at Epitaph Records." Meanwhile, Bridge Nine commented: "We're super psyched for our long-time friends to be moving onto bigger pastures. The band have been hard at work recording their new album with guitarist Jay Maas in the producer's chair again; you can probably expect that out later this year. We're real pumped to hear it."
