Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB have inked a deal with AFM Records. The band's new album, "The Terror Tapes", will be released on the following dates:
April 22 - UK
April 19 – Rest Of Europe
April 23 - USA
Regarding GAMA BOMB's follow-up to 2009's "Tales From The Grave In Space", the band's lead singer, Philly Byrne, says: "I think this album's really going to shock people. We're not afraid to write brash, outrageous songs that will make people stand up and shout. There are some straight-up classics on this album and we can't wait for everyone to hear it."
He adds: "It's been a long road to bring 'The Terror Tapes' to life. I had throat surgery, Domo [Dixon, guitar] had a tendon injury, we changed our lineup, we recorded without a label, did it all the hard way. We worked hard and got through and made a great album which we're proud to be releasing with such great guys as AFM, who really believe in what we're doing. We've spent long enough in the shadows; now we’re ready to re-emerge."
Expect songs about zombies and videogames and suchlike.
"Tales From The Grave In Space" was given away as a free download via Rapidshare with GAMA BOMB's then-label Earache Records.
