DEICIDE have re-signed with Earache Records for a worldwide two-album deal. After witnessing Earache's results with "Scars Of The Crucifix", the band have decided to extend their relationship with the label for two more albums.
Since DEICIDE originally signed with Earache in 2003 for "Scars Of The Crucifix", the band and the label have made great strides together. In its first week out, "Scars Of The Crucifix" debuted at No. 18 on Billboard's Independent Albums Chart and No. 24 on Billboard's Heatseekers Chart in the U.S., hitting both charts higher than any other metal band. In 2004, "Scars" has sold more copies worldwide than any other Earache release this year. Earache commissioned DEICIDE's first-ever video, for the title track off "Scars", and saw to it that it aired on MTV2, Fuse, Kerrang TV, and Scuzz TV.
Earache's Al Dawson had this to say about the re-signing: "DEICIDE are a great band who have stood the test of time. They're super cool guys and we're psyched to continue working with them."
DEICIDE's Brian Hoffman declared: "I am very happy to be on the best death metal label there is."
DEICIDE frontman Glen Benton and legendary tattoo artist Paul Booth — two of the most blasphemous, controversial pillars of the metal scene today — will go head-to-head in a live interview on Sirius Satellite Radio this Friday night (March 26) at 10:00 p.m. EST.
Booth, a world-renowned tattoo master dubbed "The New King of Rock Tattoo" by Rolling Stone magazine, hosts his own weekly show on Sirius, entitled "Beneath the Needle: Tattoo Radio with Paul Booth". Booth also recently leant his artistic talents to DEICIDE for the cover art of their Earache debut, "Scars Of The Crucifix".
"Beneath the Needle: Tattoo Radio with Paul Booth" features phone calls and special appearances by authorities in both the tattoo and metal music demographics. Anyone can participate on the live show, airing Fridays at 10:00 p.m. EST on "Hard Attack" on Sirius Radio. Tattoo and metal stories as well as Tattoo trivia and calls from fans of two arts are aired weekly and on-location broadcast events, like a summer-long presence on Ozzfest 2004, are planned as well.
