Faroe Islands pagan metal band TÝR has inked a three-album deal with Metal Blade Records. The signing took place yesterday (Wednesday, September 12) at the famous Rainbow Bar & Grill on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California with the label's CEO, Brian Slagel. After the signing, TÝR played a show at the Whisky A Go Go two blocks down the Sunset Strip.

TÝR, whose next album is tentatively due in May 2013, is one of the support acts on KORPIKLAANI's "Manala" North American tour along with MOONSORROW and METSATÖLL.

TÝR's sixth full-length album, "The Lay Of Thrym", was released in May 2011 via Napalm Records. It was made available as a limited-edition first pressing digipack including two bonus tracks, and as a deluxe-box-set edition including the digipack and a vintage TÝR flag.

TÝR is:

Heri Joensen - Vocals, Guitar
