Alaskan metallers 36 CRAZYFISTS have emerged from a four-year recording hibernation to sign a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records. The band's new album, "Time And Trauma", will be released in February 2015.
"We have found a new home at Spinefarm Records. And although the label is new to us, some of the staff are old friends and we couldn't be more grateful to unleash the beast that is 'Time And Trauma' with their help," says frontman Brock Lindow. "20 years in and it feels like Spinefarm is a killer home to hang our hats. See you all on the road in 2015!"
Spinefarm senior director of marketing Tim Brennan echoed that sentiment, saying, "We are thrilled to have 36 CRAZYFISTS be part of the growing Spinefarm family! They are a genuine band of brothers that has grinded for 20 years to create a truly committed fan base. 'Time And Trauma' is an incredible way to begin the next 20 years for the band.”

36 CRAZYFISTS will close out 2014 with a slew of U.S. tour dates, including a December anniversary show in their native state.
36 CRAZYFISTS debuted the "Time And Trauma" title track during the band's U.K. tour at the end of last year.
36 CRAZYFISTS in 2012 announced the addition of drummer Kyle Baltus to the group's ranks. In addition, the band was rejoined by bassist Mick Whitney following the departure of Brett "Buzzard" Makowski.
36 CRAZYFISTS's last album, "Collisions And Castaways", sold around 3,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 161 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at No. 3 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
