INTER ARMA sign to Relapse Records

INTER ARMA have announced that they have inked a deal with Relapse Records, who will release their new album next year.

From an official press release:

Relapse Records is extremely proud to announce the signing of Richmond, VA’s Inter Arma. The group consisting of (T.J. Childers – Drums, Steven Russell – Guitars, Trey Dalton – Guitars, Mike Paparo – Vocals, Joe Kerkes – Bass) formed in 2006 and released their debut full-length Sundown viaForcefield Records in 2010. Combining a punk rock ethos with an esoteric blend of psychedelia, black metal, and doom/sludge, the quintet quickly developed a name for themselves in the underground through relentless touring and mesmerizing live performances. The band commented on the signing:

“It’s pretty crazy to think that we’ll be tacitly associated with bands like Neurosis, Amorphis, Human Remains, Disembowelment, Dillinger Escape Plan, Incantation, Mastodon, et al. That’s a pretty high standard to hold yourself to, but we’ll give it our damndest.”

Additionally, the band recently released a brand new 12″ EP entitled Destroyer via Toxic Assets Records which can currently be streamed at this location. They plan to finish recording their second full-length and Relapse debut later this summer for an early 2013 release. In the meantime, Inter Arma will be hitting the road in support of the release for a four week run. A complete listing of dates is included below:
