Ignite Inks New Deal With Century Media

Just as the band is heading out for another European tour, Orange County outfit Ignite and Century Media Records are happy to announce that they have renewed their long-time business relationship, signing a brand new worldwide record deal.

Expect a brand new album and follow-up to the 2006 release, "Our Darkest Days," out before the end of 2015. The yet-untitled album was recorded over the course of a year with producer Cameron Webb, who has worked with diverse artists such as Motörhead, Social Distortion, Alkaline Trio and Pennywise.

Zoli Teglas (vocals) can already shed some light on some of the topics on the upcoming album such as bullying, the trappings and pitfalls of what some call the progress of today's world, to the mass media and its filtered information that he feels is molded to suit eco political goals for the occupation of natural resources to the oppression of peoples.

Zoli also hits upon topics such as racism and prejudice in America and the insanity of war told to him from the stories of hardship and perseverance of his immigrant family while making their journey west through war torn Europe before finally ending up in Los Angeles California. Don't miss Ignite live on these dates: More...

The band, who has been crafting some of the most definitive melodic West Coast hardcore over the past decade, is also known for their no-holds-barred social and politically engaging lyrics. This song and video is no different as the subject deals with the Iraq occupation by the U.S. As bassist Brett Rasmussen explains, it is about "the lies our government told us to get us into a war without taking the rest of the world's consideration into it."

Rise Against Member Recruits Others For New Band

Chris Chasse Leaves Rise Against, Enlists Punk Veteran Brett Rasmussen of Ignite, forms Last of The Believers and Signs to New Age Records

After parting ways with Rise Against, Chris Chasse had no intentions of wasting any time; Instead he got creative and enlisted Brett Rasmussen of So Cal punk staples, Ignite. He also roped Dave Peters, vocalist of hardcore-favorites Throwdown, into jumping on board for a few tracks and it didn’t take much to convince Steve Jennings and Nik Piscitello, members of Californian-based Spark of Life, to fill-out the line-up.

"From the second I heard them, I was really hooked" says label owner Mike Hartsfield. "When you look at those involved, it would be impossible for Last of the Believers to be anything but awesome"!

Launching their MySpace profile on June 26th, it has been less then four weeks later that the bands page exploded with over 39,000 views; closing in on 50,000 song plays and 7,000 friends. They are already ranked number 38 out of 119,000+ hardcore bands on Myspace music, which is no small feat. PureVolume.com have already featured the band twice after Last of the Believers rocketed into number one on the sites Unsigned Artists Charts, while Alternative Press Music Editor, Scott Heisel has said, “This shit rules. Can't wait to hear more!” This reaction seems to be the general consensus of American fans who on pre-order alone have pushed their self released EP into the top 9 albums available through interpunk.com.

"The artists and bands that have come out through New Age Records have not only changed my life, and help define who I am, but have also stood for something that means the world to me" states lead vocalist Steve Jennings. "They stand for something that is bigger than music and bigger than a scene. They stand for honesty, staying true to yourself and trying to make this world a better place. New Age to me is so much more then music and bands, it's an ethic, and that ethic lives inside me today. I am forever grateful to New Age Records and Mike Hartsfield for being a piller in the hardcore community that has not swayed with terrible trends and flash in the pan ideas. Having a record on New Age Records is nothing short of a dream come true and all I wanted since I started screaming into a microphone".

Plans are being finalized for a 3 song 7" coming out this Fall/early Winter.
