Bloodiest Signs To Relapse Records

Relapse Records has issued the following announcement about inking a deal with Bloodiest:

"Relapse Records is proud to announce the signing of Chicago, IL's Bloodiest. Bloodiest is a seven piece ensemble that creates a stunning collection of metal-meets-psychedelia-via-early-AmRep epics. The band has recently completed work on their debut album that is expected to see its release in early spring. Bloodiest recorded the full-length with noted engineer Sanford Parker."

Bloodiest commented on recording the new full-length and partnership with Relapse:

"We recorded with Sanford Parker @ Electrical audio in Chicago (Steve Albini's studio) where most of the basic tracks were cut live (IE drums, bass, 3 guitars) showcasing the energy and spontaneity of these songs. We then overdubbed at Semaphore Studios (also in Chicago) adding layers and textures to enhance the dynamics for what the band is known for (IE effected vocals, figure picked acoustic guitar, piano, etc.) Bloodiest is pleased to be working with Relapse and glad they got to capture our debut release Descent."
