French duo CARNIVAL IN COAL have inked a multi-album deal with Earache/Elitist Records.

With three albums under their belt so far ("Viva La Vida", "French Cancan" and "Fear Not" — all released by Kodiak/Season Of Mist), the band have already built a large following of like-minded weirdos. Fans are hooked on their scatlogical lyrics and bizarre cover versions (a "lounge-jazz" version of PANTERA's "Fucking Hostile", anyone?), and self-penned songs like "Yes, We Have No Bananas" that jump from one genre to the next in the blink of an eye. To sample the madness of CARNIVAL IN COAL, click here for a stream of a previously recorded track "Don't be Happy, Worry" taken from the band's third album "Fear Not".

The band are currently working on their new album, which will apparently be the first CD ever to feature a lawnmower solo. A late 2004 release is expected.
