Unearth set to record new album, sign with Century Media
Massachusetts metal veterans Unearth have officially signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records. The band commented: "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 enter soon enter Graphic Nature Studio with Will Putney (Gojira, Thy Art Is Murder) to begin tracking their new album, which will surface late summer/early fall. Adam Dutkiewicz (of Killswitch Engage) will be recording drums for the outing. Mike Gitter, Vice President of A&R for Century Media USA, further added: "Unearth have an unshakable foundation that they build on record to record. They've become a key player in today's metal landscape and will remain that for many records to come. Will Putney has become one of metal's true "go-to" guys and a production force in his own right. Having Adam D. involved is a creative stamp that has been part of Unearth's best work to date. Having them both involved should be absolutely crushing."
