The Absence Sign With Metal Blade Records

Tampa, Florida's the Absence have officially inked a worldwide deal with Metal Blade Records. Having previously self-released an EP that received great praise, the Absence will be taking the world by force with their upcoming full-length and live shows; laying waste to all in their path and carving their name in the world of melodic metal. The band will enter Manna Studios on April 10 with producer Erik Rutan (Into the Moat, Soilent Green, Hate Eternal) to record their first Metal Blade release, scheduled to be out in the fall. The Absence will be touring relentlessly both nationally and abroad in support of their debut release.

The band commented, ""We are very excited to be on Metal Blade Records, a label we have all grown up listening to and look forward to joining the ranks of such heavy hitters as Amon Amarth, King Diamond, Cannibal Corpse, the Crown and so many other great metal bands."

Metal Blade president, Mike Faley said, "It is a pleasure to add the Absence to the Metal Blade Records roster. Their aggressive form of metal is fresh and heavy. They must put something in that Florida water, because they follow in the footsteps of SFU, Cannibal Corpse, and our young band Into the Moat in presenting a fresh new sound to metal."

The Absence lineup:

Jamie Stewart - Vocals
Patrick Pintavalle - Guitar
Peter Joseph - Guitars
Nicholas Calaci - Bass
Jeramie Kling - Drums
