Formed in 1977, British hardcore punks from DISCHARGE have inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Records! The band will release their new record “End Of Days” in 2016. Check out the official word below and scroll down to watch the band’s new video for the track “NWO”, first unveiled in June this year.
The band commented:
DISCHARGE are very happy to say we’ve signed to Nuclear Blast Records, a label that knows the genre and believes in what we do. We love the family atmosphere that revolves around the label and we are proud to be on their roster of great bands, some of whom are friends of ours.We’re excited about our new album, ‘End Of Days’, with three quarters of the original classic lineup (Bones, Rainy and Tezz), plus Dave on drums and JJ Janiak on vocals — who captures the original DISCHARGE sound and spirit. Original drummer Tezz moves on to rhythm guitar, so this is the first time in the band’s history that we’ve had a five-piece lineup.“‘End Of Days’ are upon us, but it‘s just the beginning for us with Nuclear Blast… the nightmare continues!
Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger added:
Signing DISCHARGE is a longtime dream come true. I grew up listening to hardcore and punk and DISCHARGE were one of my favorite bands from the beginning. DISCHARGE were more extreme and more fucked up than everything else. With their first EP, ‘Why’, and their debut, ‘Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing’, DISCHARGE created classics which I know by heart and strongly influenced me. Bands like METALLICA, SLAYER, ANTHRAX, MACHINE HEAD and SOULFLY have covered songs by DISCHARGE, attracted by their British uniqueness.
I’m proud to be able to welcome DISCHARGE to the Nuclear Blast family. In crust we trust!”
