Dutch female-fronted gothic rock outfit NEMESEA has inked a deal with Napalm Records. The band's third album will be released in the summer.

Commented the group: "Teaming up with Napalm Records is something we have been looking forward to for quite some time now.

"We've been working really hard on our new album and are very excited that Napalm has taken us under its wings. A great record company that believes in NEMESEA!

"There's a lot of emotion on this album, as well as power and anxiety.

"The upcoming album is filled with strong and powerful songs, as well as beautiful fragile ballads.

"We are confident that Napalm Records will bring the music where it belongs."

NEMESEA recently parted ways with drummer Steven Bouma and replaced him with Frank Van Der Star.

NEMESEA will perform at Atak in Enschede, Netherlands on June 5 with THE GATHERING.

A teaser clip for the forthcoming CD can be viewed below.

NEMESEA recorded its July 2 and July 3, 2009 concerts at P3 in Purmerend, Holland for a live album, "Pure: Live @ P3", which was released in September 2009. The shows were unique in the sense that the audience was able to hear the band perform live in Surround Sound 7.0 as part of an innovative project that was conducted in co-operation with students from the Utrecht School of the Arts (HKU).

NEMESEA's second album, "In Control", was produced by Tony Platt (AC/DC, BOB MARLEY) and Ronald Prent (RAMMSTEIN) and was released in June 2007.

NEMESEA recorded "In Control" after raising $50,000 through the web site, which empowers artists to make a professional album funded by fans.
