SACRED MOTHER TONGUE Signs With EMI Label Services

EMI Label Services has announced a deal with British metal act SACRED MOTHER TONGUE to release their forthcoming second album. Due to be unveiled later this year in a series of releases, SACRED MOTHER TONGUE's sophomore effort, produced by Scott Atkins, is a quantum leap forward, showcasing a band coming of age in spectacular style.

Since forming in 2007, the band have picked up critical acclaim alongside a dedicated fanbase with singles such as "Two Thousand Eight Hundred" and their debut album, "The Ruin Of Man", released in 2009. Touring with the likes of LAMB OF GOD and EVILE and performing at Download, Sonisphere, Hard Rock Hell and Hammerfest over the past three years, the band have been honing their craft ready for the next step in their musical evolution.

And now the first taste of what is to come can be viewed in the shape of a lyric video for the brand new track "Seven". Shot overnight in a forest deep in Wales, it's the opening salvo in SACRED MOTHER TONGUE's ascent to the highest echelons of British metal, powered by the kind of sky-scraping rock music that will take them around the world. You can view that video below.

And with their first step on the international scene being a headline tour of China later this month, including a slot at the prestigious Hang Zhou West Lake Music Festival, the band are coming out all guns blazing.

Their stunning sonic arsenal features the bruised power of vocalist Darrin Smith, whose two-year battle with severe depression forms the lyrical basis of the new album, and guitarist Andy James, whose six-string skills have gained him worldwide acclaim both from his peers and on YouTube where his guitar tutorials now have over 4 million views.

Completed by Josh Gurner on bass, famed for his stage-diving antics whilst still shredding the fretboard, thus creating the infamous "Josh Pit," and drummer Lee Newell, who is also the rhythmic powerhouse behind FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM's live performances, SACRED MOTHER TONGUE are renewed, revitalized and ready to take on the planet.

A London showcase gig will be announced soon along with full details of their debut EMI release.
