ROUGH SILK Seeking New Record Deal, New Album Delayed

Due to "business-related reasons," "The Good, The Bad & The Undead", the eighth studio album from German epic/melodic metallers ROUGH SILK, will not be released this month via Icewarrior/Rock It Up Records. The band states on its web site, "We are looking for a new deal at the moment." The group adds, "We are really happy with the album and hope you will like it, too. Because we always tried and will always try to avoid clichés and write songs that are not so easy to categorize it may take some time — but we're pretty sure we'll get it out later this year."

The "The Good, The Bad & The Undead" cover artwork can be viewed below.

ROUGH SILK's last album, "A New Beginning", came out in March 2009 via Dockyard 1 Records.

Mastermind Ferdy Doernberg teamed up with André Hort (bass), Mike Mandel (guitars) and Alex Wenn (drums), who are young and hungry musicians from the Hannover area to bring fresh blood and enthusiasm into the band and most important to bring back more metal into ROUGH SILK's sound again.
