California thrash metal veterans HIRAX have inked a worldwide deal with SPV/Steamhammer. The band's new album will be released in September 2013 and will be followed by a world tour.
Commented HIRAX frontman Katon W. De Pena: "We are honored to now be a part of the SPV family and we appreciate their total support of our thrash metal music. Together we are going to bring the heavy metal music world one hell of a skull-crushing album in 2013."
Added SPV/Steamhammer A&R representative Olly Hahn: "It's an honor to have Katon and HIRAX on our label. Through all the years, Katon held the flag of metal high and also played places of the earth where nobody would. It's time for another raging violence!"
HIRAX recently released a new single, "La Boca De La Bestia (The Mouth Of The Beast)", through iTunes. A very special limited-edition 12-inch vinyl version of the single with bonus tracks is also planned for a December 14 release on Black Devil Records.
"La Boca De La Bestia (The Mouth Of The Beast)" will be included on HIRAX's as-yet-untitled new full-length album. The song was recorded, produced and mastered by Bill Metoyer at Skull Seven Productions.
A promotional video that includes the song and a comprehensive photo slideshow can be seen below.
