Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of the UK death/grind phenomenon TRIGGER THE BLOODSHED. The band's debut album, "Purgation", will be released in the U.S., Canada, Australia and Japan.

Commented the band: "We are truly honored and excited to announce that TRIGGER THE BLOODSHED are now a part of the Metal Blade Records family. To be a part of the label that has provided us with much of the music we have grown up listening to and has influenced us as musicians is a great feeling. We are very grateful for the opportunity we have had presented to us and would like to thank everyone at Metal Blade for their faith in the band and their work in making this partnership a reality. We would like to thank all our fans for their continued support and make sure you keep an eye out for plans of our debut Metal Blade release and future touring plans which will be announced soon."

The label stated: "Metal Blade is very excited to have the new premier extreme band from England on our label. The band has garnered high praise from the English press, in particular Kerrang!, Terrorizer and Metal Hammer. In fact, the band is nominated and will be attending this years prestigious Metal Hammer Awards as well as playing the infamous Download Festival. We look forward to the response from the American audience and press."

Formed in late 2006 in Bath England by Rob Purnell and Martyn Evans, TRIGGER THE BLOODSHED has been creating some of the most extreme music in death metal, forging the new with the old school. Their blistering blast filled death metal is a devastating aural assault earning them the title as the UK's heaviest band. With the writing process coming to a close for their follow-up album, and a freshly penned partnership with Metal Blade Records, TRIGGER THE BLOODSHED is looking to cement its name firmly in the extreme music scene around the world and prove its passion and capabilities for writing devastating death metal.
