Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of Italian metallers DESTRAGE. The band's new album, "Are You Kidding Me? No.", is complete and is scheduled for an early 2014 release. A trailer for the CD can be seen below.
Plans are currently in motion for videos in support of "Are You Kidding Me? No.", as well as more extensive touring in 2014.
DESTRAGE formed in 2005 and has released two full-length albums so far: "Urban Being" in 2009, and "The King is Fat'N'Old" in 2010. Their animated live shows have taken them on tour all over Europe, and even over to Japan.
DESTRAGE opened for EVERY TIME I DIE and PARKWAY DRIVE this summer, and headlined a variety of Italian festivals, including Machete Fest, Rock In Riot, MAV Festival, and more.
Comments DESTRAGE on joining the Metal Blade roster: "It's quite difficult for us to describe in few words our feelings about this moment. We just signed with one of the most important and historical metal label in the world, being welcomed as members of a big family; this is simply amazing!
"We've listened to Metal Blade artists since we were just fresh-faced kids and now we're stoked to be part of such a great roster.
"We are really excited for the upcoming release and we can't wait to bring this work on stage and tour around as much as we can."
