Influential Brooklyn, NY metal progenitors Candiria have signed to Metal Blade Records. Since forming in 1992, the band has released seven full lengths albums, two EPs, and survived a serious van crash in 2002. Now, with a new record deal in place, Candiria is on course to release their first new full length since 2009’s Kiss the Lie.
Candiria’s John LaMacchia comments: “The band is extremely excited to be a part of the Metal Blade family. We couldn’t think of a better way to forge ahead with a new chapter in our career. We have a new album in the works and we definitely plan to hit the road in support of it. 2016 is going to be an amazing year for Candiria.”
Michael MacIvor adds: “Metal Blade have been at the forefront of extreme music since I was a kid. Just like Candiria, they have always pushed the boundaries of music, and have trusted their gut instincts. I can’t think of a better place to call home for the future of Candiria. We are extremely happy to be a part of the Metal Blade family.”
