Lebanon, Pennsylvania-based metallers ALETHEIAN have inked a deal with Ironclad Recordings, the label formed by UNEARTH frontman Trevor Phipps.
According to the band's official bio, ALETHEIAN is a central Pennsylvania-based metal band, formerly know as CRUTCH. The name change came when CRUTCH underwent a major transformation acquiring two new members, and made the decision to take the band to the touring level for the first time.
CRUTCH was founded in 1997 and became ALETHEIAN in 2003, but the style and material of the band has not changed with the name. Combining elements of technical, progressive, European, and melodic metal, ALETHEIAN hopes to bring a fresh sound and a positive message to a dark, dry scene.
ALETHEIAN hasplayed in over 25 states, from California to Maine, alongside such bands as BIOHAZARD, CEPHALIC CARNAGE, PRIMER 55, BURIED ALIVE, ANTITHESIS, WITHERED EARTH, HEIDNIK, DISGORGE, EVERGREEN TERRACE, SEVER THE FALLEN, ZAO, UNDEROATH, FOUNTAIN OF TEARS, RWAKE, AKELDAMA and LIVING SACRIFICE.
