Modern metal outfit Amaranthe just announced their new partnership with globally known heavy music label Nuclear Blast Records. The band is currently working on their 6th studio album which is supposed to drop in 2020.
Amaranthe, who are around since 2008, have already released 5 albums, the last one being 2018’s “Helix” which they are still promoting on the road. In November 2019, they continue touring through Scandinavia, followed by a supporting tour alongside cellists Apocalyptica and Swedish metal stars Sabaton.
Olof Mörck states: “It feels amazing to unveil our cooperation with the giants at Nuclear Blast! Ever since we held our shiny new Nuclear Blast CD’s in our teenage hands back in the mid-90’s, they have been at the forefront of bringing the best of the best to the metal scene, and to have them as partners is a dream come true! They are not only massively experienced in the metal scene, but also wonderful people and it has been a pleasure getting to know them. We are already nailing down great plans for the future, and things are looking brighter and stronger for AMARANTHE than ever! Keep your eyes open for our next leap forward together in the near future!”
Managing director of Nuclear Blast, Marcus Hammer, continues: “We’re more than happy to welcome AMARANTHE and Kult Management to the Nuclear Blast family. I’ve already been following the group for a while as they were touring with some of their new label mates. Being both great musicians and humans, that have a clear vision and are supported by an experienced team in the back, it was a no-brainer to try to win this outstanding band for our roster. Now we’re stoked to be the new partner at their side pursuing one goal: adding a successful next chapter to their already shiny career. The future looks bright for both, AMARANTHE and Nuclear Blast.”
