The Young Gods Sign To Ipecac Recordings

Ipecac Recordings will be releasing the latest effort from industrial masters The Young Gods. Here is the announcement:

"Of course we take great pride in all of the bands we work with, however, once in awhile you get the chance to work with a true music innovator. The Young Gods are hall of famers for sure!!! The Swiss industrial band has been around for 20 years, and while longevity does not always equate to quality, we are thrilled to present to you the latest full length release from TYG, "Super Ready/Fragmente". This is certain to go down as one of their classic releases. The combination of beautiful atmospheres with grinding/blasting squalls of sound make this one a keeper. There is a reason that bands like Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, KMFDM and even David Bowie have cited The Young Gods as an influence. Embraced by fans of rock,metal,dance,electronic,ambient,techno, industrial & goth, whether singing in French or English, The Young Gods are still relevant today as they were 20 years ago."
