MOB RULES To Release 'Radical Peace' In November

German metallers MOB RULES will release their sixth album, "Radical Peace", in November via AFM Records. The CD was recorded at Bazement Studio with longtime engineer Markus Teske (VANDEN PLAS, SPOCK'S BEARD, OASIS). A single, "Astral Hand", will precede the full-length CD in October.

"Radical Peace" will include MOB RULES' twenty-minute epic "The Oswald File", which deals with the assassination of John F. Kennedy and brings up the question whether the suspected (and later murdered) killer Harvey Lee Oswald really was the one who shot Kennedy.

MOB RULES filmed a video for the song "Astral Hand" on April 18 at Jahnhalle in Nordenham, Germany. Directing the clip was Ronald Mattes from ROAX Film, who also worked with the band on the "Black Rain" and "Last Farewell" videos.

Regarding the band's new label home, MOB RULES said in a statement, "We are happy that we signed with the label of our first choice. The well-known professional work of the company and their high-class artist-roster go well with us and our musical direction."

AFM added, "With MOB RULES we welcome one of the best and most consistent German melodic/power metal bands. We are convinced that we can support the band on their further way up. Furthermore we can announce one of the metal highlight of 2009 in 'Radical Peace', the band's heaviest and most diverse album so far. Expect some spectacular surprises!"

MOB RULES will take part in the Wacken Rocks Seaside in Aurich, Germany on August 28; the Börsencrash Festival in Wuppertal, Germany on October 16; and the "Radical Peace" album-release concert in the band's hometown of Wilhelmshaven on November 27.

MOB RULES' last album, "Ethnolution A.D.", was released in Europe in October 2006. Produced by Markus Teske, "Ethnolution A.D." marked the recording debut with the group of guitarist Sven Lüdke (ex-MURDER ONE) and bassist Markus Brinkmann.
