New Zealand death metal band Ulcerate have signed with Relapse Records and will begin recording a new album late next year. The band released their latest album, The Destroyers of All in January of this year on respected underground label Willowtip Records, and is likely to be death metal album of the year.
“Working with Relapse is a very logical next step for us, and we’re really looking forward to the partnership. Their presence of quality releases regardless of genre, overarching aesthetic and attention to detail is something that we find very natural to align with, as well as being fans of the label’s releases well before the band was even started,” commented drummer Jamie Saint-Merat. The band will begin a European tour in February, so exciting things ahead.
