CANDLELIGHT And REGAIN RECORDS Confirm Agreement For The Americas

Candlelight Records has announced a North American agreement with Sweden's Regain Records. The new partnership will see the marketing and distribution of all new and reissued catalog titles through Candlelight's growing stateside operation.

The first scheduled release will be the new album from Sweden's MARDUK. The album, titled "Plague Angel", will see its awaited stateside release on March 8. The band are currently set to begin their European tour in support of the record and are planning U.S. dates later this year. A full release schedule will be noted shortly and will include new studios albums from DARK FUNERAL, DISMEMBER, and GORGOROTH among others.

Based in Malmo, Sweden, Regain Records formed in 1997. Since then the label has evolved into a dynamic and respected label throughout Europe. In the past years Regain has expanded its profile with the impressive signings of DANZIG, SAMAEL, MARDUK, DARK FUNERAL, and BEHEMOTH, among others. The label is further home to early recordings from IN FLAMES and ARCH ENEMY.

Since its launch January 2001, Candlelight's U.S. operation has released over 150 albums across its three U.S. imprints. The company's current releases include the label debut from CROWBAR, plus new albums from ENSLAVED, THE MIGHTY NIMBUS, a special live album from ENTOMBED and the debut from DEBRIS INC., featuring members of ST. VITUS and TROUBLE. Candlelight is the home to early albums from OPETH and the entire recording history of EMPEROR; the band's pivotal four albums recently reissued with extensive bonus material.
