Lancaster, Pennsylvania natives THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE have signed a North and South American deal with eOne Music. The band's new album will be released in the fall.
"On behalf of THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE enterprises, I'm proud to let everyone know that our new American home is located at eOne Music," says THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE vocalist Ricky Armellino. "Please make a note on all outgoing packages. Honestly, I couldn't believe we would be making one signing announcement, so the third feels pretty surreal. It's humbling and a reminder that hard work pays off."
THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE's forthcoming CD will be the band's first release since "Haunt What's Left", produced by Josh Wilbur and LAMB OF GOD's own Chris Adler in 2010.
The band is on tour with NORMA JEAN and will head over to China for a short batch of dates.
Having originally released its debut record, "Monuments", in 2007 the band has not slowed down since. With a few dozen tours under their belt with bands like WE CAME AS ROMANS, PERIPHERY and BORN OF OSIRIS, the band is hardly new to the hands-on approach. Things like giving lessons while on tour and actively taking a role in their day to day is what sets THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE apart.
THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE is: Rick Armellino (vocals), Jack Esbenshade (guitar), Matthew Marcellus (bass, vocals) and Rodney Phillips (guitar, vocals).
