German rock band GLOOMBALL will release its debut album, "The Distance", in Germany on April 26, in the rest of Europe on April 29 and in North America on May 7 via SPV/Steamhammer.
Comments the group: "We are proud to announce that we've signed a worldwide record deal with Germany's premier rock and metal label Steamhammer, a division of SPV GmbH! We are stoked and can't wait to get busy!"
According to a press release, "The Distance" documents an amazing diversity of styles, influences and ingredients.
"We refer to our material simply as rock music, but you could also call it alternative metal or modern rock," GLOOMBALL guitarist Björn Daigger, who composed the majority of the tracks together with vocalist Alen Ljubic, explains, adding: "At the end of the day, our range includes elements from pop to death metal. In addition, there are classic orchestra parts as well as ultra-deep seven-string guitars. There are no stylistic taboos in GLOOMBALL."
"The Distance" title track will be released as a single and video on March 22.
