Candlelight Records has announced the signing of Denver, Colorado-based thrashers HAVOK. The band is currently putting the finishing touches on its debut album, titled "Burn", for an early spring release. The CD, produced by vocalist/guitarist David Sanchez at Dirty D Studios and mixed by Bart McCrorey at Motaland Studios, contains twelve songs from the youthful band, also featuring guitarist Shawn Chavez, drummer Ryan Bloom and bassist Jesse de Los Santos.

HAVOK has been impressing its growing fanbase since the band's formation in 2004. The group has performed alongside EXODUS, DESTRUCTION, INTO ETERNITY, CEPHALIC CARNAGE, and has toured with fellow new thrashers BONDED BY BLOOD. Via two independent recordings, "PWN 'Em All" and "Murder By Metal" (both quickly selling out their pressings), the band has reached audiences far outside its regional borders.

Sanchez says of the band's signing, "This is the break we've been working toward and now that it's finally here, we're more than ready to make the most of it. We are both psyched and humbled to be a part of the Candlelight roster." Chavez adds, "This is the beginning of great things to come. We know that the work is really just beginning and that the pressure is on but pressure as you know makes diamonds."
