Napalm Records has announced the signing of Detroit, Michigan's WALLS OF JERICHO. The band is currently working on its first full-length album since 2008 for a late 2015 release.
After releasing a demo track, "Relentless", last year, the band felt the itch again and decided to get back to recording.
Drummer Dustin Schoenhofer comments on the Napalm deal: "All of us in WALLS OF JERICHO are proud and very excited to have signed with Napalm Records and are looking forward to finally finding the right partnership to release our new music with.
"We would like to thank both Napalm and all our fans and family for being so patient with us these past seven years since our last release, 'cause it's long overdue."
Adds Thomas Caser, Napalm Records VP: "We are thrilled to work with one of the most exciting acts out of this genre and one of the best live bands out there!
"WALLS OF JERICHO have left their mark in the music industry and yet there is so much more to come for this band.
"Watch out for the band's new album this year and make sure you catch them live at some point if you have not seen them!"
WALLS OF JERICHO's last album, "The American Dream", (Trustkill Records), sold around 2,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The effort debuted at No. 11 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
"The American Dream" was recorded at Spider Studios in Cleveland, Ohio with Ben Schigel and Tony Gammalo.
WALLS OF JERICHO and Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT, STONE SOUR) collaborated on an EP entitled "Redemption". The CD, which was produced by Taylor, featured primarily melodic vocals and acoustic instruments.
