Indie Recordings has announced the signing of Norway's MAN THE MACHETES. The band's debut album, "Idiokrati", will be released on January 29 in Europe.

The first single from the upcoming album, "Mageplask", can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.

Commented MAN THE MACHETES: "We feel privileged to be working with Indie Recordings to release our debut album. We have been met with professionalism, good advice and it's been great working together so far.

"We are very excited about the reception of our first single and the album when it's released in January. The album contains 10 tracks that are characterized by hard work and a high party factor. The nearly 30 minutes are intense, without much breathing space, and production-wise, we are very pleased. Eric Ratz has done a fantastic job and has been a major factor in giving each song the identity that we have been looking for. We are so excited!"

In a matter of two years, MAN THE MACHETES has gone from playing small venues in Norway to playing festivals like Pstereo and Hove, being awarded Ukas Urørt by the Norwegian radio broadcasters NRK P3, and warming up for bands like GALLOWS and KVELERTAK.
