VOIVOD SIGN TO CENTURY MEDIA

Global heavies Century Media Records have announced the signing of Canadian metallers Voivod, and the imminent arrival of their new album.

.

Coinciding with the band’s 30th anniversary, Voivod has united with Century Media to release their 13th album, ‘Target Earth’, on January 21st 2013.

.

Voivod commented: “Our goal has been to find a partner for Iron Gang Factory [the band’s company] to help get new Voivod music to the world and Century Media, we are proud to say, is the right company to do so globally. We can’t wait to release tour and promote ‘Target Earth’.”

.

The album was recorded earlier this year in January at Pierre Rémillard’s (Cryptopsy, Krisiun, Misery Index) Wild Studio in Quebec, Canada, and will contain the band’s first music written with new guitarist Daniel “Chewy” Mongrain.

According to a post on Voivod’s Facebook page, fans can “expect something in the vein of ‘Nothingface’ with some elements from the other albums. It will be a classic Voivod album.” In a recent interview, drummer Away stated: “It’s more in the progressive metal vein, so it’s reminiscent of the ‘Dimension Hatröss’ era.”

Voivod debuted the ‘Target Earth’ title track during their performance at Roadburn in Holland earlier this year. Fan-filmed footage of the band performing the song in Quebec, Canada can be seen HERE

Voivod will embark on a European headlining tour in October.
