Detente Album Seeing 2-CD Version

Xtreem Music has issued the following statement about a 2-CD version of "Recognize No Authority" to be released soon:

"Xtreem Music is proud to announce a release that's one of our absolute top thrash metal albums EVER!! A fucking classic!! This is the debut album from Los Angeles' Detente's 'Recognize No Authority.'

"Formed back in 1984, this re-issue celebrates the 30th anniversary of the band and includes absolutely all demos from Detente plus two unreleased songs taken from live & rehearsal recordings, and the two Catalepsy demos, a side band from some members, which sounded basically the same as Detente.

"This release has been approved and directed by former bass player Steve Hochheiser and means the one and only band's demo & discography from the 80's, contradicting some websites like Metal-Archives.com whose information is wrong.

"'Recognize No Authority' was originally released in 1986 through Roadrunner Records in the US and Metal Blade in Europe. Leaded by female vocalist Dawn Crosby (rip), the band quickly gained a status within the Thrash Metal scene with their unique style aside from the typical bands from these times.

Detente Calling It A Day

California's Detente has issued the following announcement about officially disbanding:

"DÉTENTE will call it a day. Today the Cognitive Records reissue of Recognize No Authority sold out, with nearly 3000 copies sold we would call it successful given a few years ago DÉTENTE were more of a trivia question (despite selling 10’s of thousands of copies in the 80’s). DÉTENTE Decline has also done well with over 1000 sold in the first few months.

"The band has put much work into the reunion and believes that while it has been hard work, that it has been a positive experience: having the opportunity to see so many of our friends on our last EU tour was especially cool! The fact is like everyone else, the band has daily responsibilities and the logistics of keeping DÉTENTE moving is no longer possible.

"While it is conceivable that we could get together for a festival in the future we believe it is time to call it a day. Thanks to everyone who has helped along the way, we value your effort and friendships."

"We have already put down 4 of the 9 new tracks with her and can tell you that both old and new supporters of the band will be blown away by her and the new tracks. Decline is coming along very well, taking longer than expected but it will be worth it; we should have an official street date announcement mid December."
