Here’s the official statement:
Lancaster, PA natives THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE has signed a deal with eOne Music for North and South America. “On behalf of This or the Apocalypse Enterprises, I’m proud to let everyone know that our new American home is located at eOne Music. Please make a note on all outgoing packages. Honestly, I couldn’t believe we would be making one signing announcement, so the third feels pretty surreal. It’s humbling and a reminder that hard work pays off,” says vocalist Ricky Armellino.
This will be the band’s first release since “Haunt What’s Left,” produced by Josh Wilbur and Lamb Of God’s own Chris Adler in 2010.The band is on tour with NORMA JEAN and will head over to China for a short batch of dates, click HERE for more info!
Originally releasing their debut record “Monuments,” in 2007 the band has not slowed down since. With a few dozen tours under their belt with bands like We Came as Romans, Periphery and Born of Osiris the band is hardly new to the hands-on approach. Things like giving lessons while on tour and actively taking a role in their day to day is what sets THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE apart.
THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE is: Rick Armellino (Vocals), Jack Esbenshade (Guitar), Matthew Marcellus (Bass/Vocals) and Rodney Phillips (Guitar/Vocals).
