Ascendance Records has announced the signing of the Swedish avant-garde rock band DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA to a worldwide deal. The group's new album, "Sing-Along Songs for the Damned & Delirious", is tentatively due in September. As well as the normal release, Ascendance will be producing a strictly limited and numbered boxed version, available by direct mail order only. It will feature an exclusive DVD, a set of postcards, a pewter pendant and a sticker all in an embossed tin box. Full details will be made available closer to release.

"Sing-Along Songs for the Damned & Delirious" will be recorded at In Flames studio in Gothenburg under the supervision of producer Roberto Laghi who, besides his work on the latest IN FLAMES effort, has also worked with the likes of SONIC SYNDICATE, MUSTASCH and HARDCORE SUPERSTAR. Recordings will commence on April 6 and will be finished on May 1. Mixing will be done between June 1 and June 12. The band will be posting a studio report at the end of each week on its MySpace site so that you can follow how the recordings are progressing.

According to DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA, fans of the band's 2006 self-released debut, "The Butcher's Ballroom" (later licensed to Candlelight Records in Europe and Sonic Cathedral in the U.S.), will recognize the DSO sound but it has developed into something even more playful and at times far more aggressive than before.

The unique genre-hopping Swedish sextet has already garnered an ever-growing army of fans on the strength of "The Butcher's Ballroom" and its European festival perfomances, including Metal Female Voices Fest and Summer Breeze.
