Scottish metal mob Bleed From Within are poised to take their bludgeoning noise to the next level after signing a major deal with Century Media.
The Glasgow quintet have cut their teeth opening up for bands including Soilwork, All That Remains, After The Burial and new labelmates Suicide Silence and Caliban.
And festival fans have seen BFW tear up the stage at festivals including Download (UK), Sonisphere (UK), Hevy Fest (UK), Graspop (B), Summerbreeze (D) and Pukkelpop (B).
And after inking their deal with Century Media the band said: “We’re honoured to be joining the Century Media family, alongside bands which we’ve looked up to and admired since before we even began making music.
“The label is one of the most respected metal labels in the world and we are excited to be a part of it. Century Media have always been a powerhouse in bringing cutting edge new music to the world and we will endeavour to live up to the name.
“We look forward to our future at the label, working with great people who have shown their belief in this band.”
The band is recording drums and vocals for their new album and Century Media Records debut with Romesh Dodangoda (Funeral For A Friend, Motörhead, Lost Prophets) and all the guitars with Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood of Periphery. Check out an update that the band filmed in the studio:
