CANDLELIGHT, THREEMAN Ink North American Licensing Agreement

Candlelight Records has secured a North American license for all Threeman Recordings titles. The new partnership will see the U.S. and Canadian release of all new and reissued catalog titles from the growing Scandinavian record label through Candlelight's stateside operation.

The first scheduled release will be ENTOMBED's latest album, "Inferno". The U.S. release, expected in August, will feature bonus selections not available on the European release. The band is already in the planning stages of a full U.S. tour to support the album sometime this fall. Details to follow.

Threeman's Daniel Strachal says: "We feel very pleased to finally have this deal up and running. And with a strong partner like Candlelight we hope that we can finally get our sought-after albums released properly stateside, especially ENTOMBED, who has been shamelessly underexposed overseas since 'Wolverine Blues'. We have also received great interest for MURDER SQUAD and THE PROJECT HATE. Our goal has always been availability and finally we and Candlelight can deliver."

Formed in 1996, the Stockholm-based Threeman Recordings is owned and run by members of ENTOMBED with Daniel Strachal. The label's roster includes THE PROJECT HATE, MURDER SQUAD, GOD AMONG INSECTS, with ENTOMBED and others. For Europe, Threeman is distributed by Playground Music throughout Scandinavia with Plastic Head Music handling England and other various territories.
