Post-metal band Alcest have announced their signing to Nuclear Blast Records, and will release a new album this year. The band are currently finishing up the album, which is set to be revealed relatively soon.
The full announcement reads as follows:
“ALCEST sign with Nuclear Blast for the worldwide release of their 6th studio album.
ALCEST comment: “We are happy to start a new chapter of our journey by signing a deal with Nuclear Blast Records. We are in the studio at the moment, working on our 6th album and feel really excited about releasing this record with the help of our new partners. We will also start playing live again from May this year, so keep an eye on the dates!”
Nuclear Blast’s head of A&R, Andy Siry, states:
“ALCEST have always been a band that never followed anyone’s footsteps and forged a completely new music genre by following the sound of their most hidden dreams. Therefore we are more than happy to join them along their path, support them on a worldwide level, and see where their next album will guide us to. Bienvenue à Donzdorf, Neige et Winterhalter!”
ALCEST are currently at Drudenhaus Studio in Nantes, France putting the final touches to the recordings of their upcoming and still untitled 6th studio album that will see the light later in 2019.
