Columbus, Ohio-based death metal band DEATH OF AN ERA has inked a deal with Artery Recordings, the joint venture between The Artery Foundation and Razor & Tie. The group will release its debut EP, "The Great Commonwealth", on May 21. The CD was produced by Kevin Lankford.

DEATH OF AN ERA formed in 2012. After a year supporting its independently released "Reviler" EP, this collective of high school friends had risen out of the Ohio underground and into the national spotlight. Alternative Press featured them in AP&R, and they carved out a rabid core of fans through relentless touring and an incomparable sound. Confronting everything from child abuse and drug addiction to deceit and bullying head-on, the group — Daniel Simpson (vocals), Nathan Stewart (guitar), Dustin Colling (guitar), and brothers Chris (bass) and Michael Cooper (drums) — offer catharsis in the face of chaos.

DEATH OF AN ERA is managed by Mike Milford and Thomas Gutches of The Artery Foundation.

"The Great Commonwealth" EP track listing:

01. Create, Sustain
02. P.O.S.
03. Shapeshifter
04. The Helpless Settlement
05. American Dictation
06. A Mothers Love
