3 Sign With METAL BLADE RECORDS

Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of the Woodstock, NY-based band 3.

According to a press release, "3 is a band apart: Dark yet uplifting, spiritual without any connection to religion — theirs is a sound that transcends the genre conformity of modern pop culture. Rapid-fire acoustic guitar infused with dynamic percussion, animated drumming and thunderous bass culminate in a listening experience that is at once accessible and unique. Poly-rhythms pulse within a symphony of driving metal guitars and melodic vocal acrobatics. 3 offers musicality without pretension. We double dare any music writer to describe the sound.

"3 came together in the mid-1990s and very quickly developed a strong local following. In the year 2000, 3 landed a recording contract with Planet Noise Records, and released their debut CD, 'Paint by Number', an exquisite collection of 14 tracks.

"In 2003, 3 released their follow-up CD, 'Summer Camp Nightmare', an album that marked an evolutionary leap in the bands already highly developed sound. When fellow NY-based rockers COHEED AND CAMBRIA got their hands on this record they insisted that 3 hit the road with them, and the rest, as they say, is history.

"Enter 2005, the band signed to Metal Blade Records and prepared the re-release of 'Wake Pig', which was previously released by Planet Noise Records in 2004, with new art and lyrics which were not in the earlier version, two new songs, a couple of remixes, and Max's vocals added to the song 'Where’s Max'."

"Wake Pig" will be released in Europe through Metal Blade Records in January of 2006.
