Quebec, Canada-based metallers HANKER have inked a deal with Hellion Records for the European and Japanese territories. The band's fifth album, "Conspiracy Of Mass Extinction", will finally see the light of day at the end of July.

HANKER was recently rejoined by drummer Luc Guay.

Luc originally became a member of HANKER in 1990 but was forced to leave in 2005 for family reasons.

Sylvain Trembley played drums on "Conspiracy Of Mass Extinction", for which the band is currently seeking American distribution.

The artwork for "Conspiracy Of Mass Extinction" was once again created by David Faucher, who was also responsible for the artwork on the band's previous album, "Web Of Faith".

"Web of Faith" was released in August 2004 via Skycraper Music. The CD was recorded at Victor and JFD studios.
