Misguided Aggression has issued the following statement about signing to Year of the Sun Records:

"Woodstock, Ontario based Misguided Aggression has officially signed a with Year of the Sun Records and Kerosene Media for the release of their upcoming debut full-length, "Hatchala". The album will surface in stores across Canada on March 17th, 2009. The group is currently streaming the tracks "Our Kingdom Come" and "Pigs in the Market" from their forthcoming debut online at their MySpace page.

"It's really awesome to see all the work we've been doing over the past 3 years start to come together. We're really excited and glad to be working with a label that believes in us and our music," says Misguided Aggression guitarist Ben Dobson. "'Hatchala' will be our first full-length and Tom Ireland at Icehouse Studios did a great job of capturing the raw intensity of our sound. We look forward to a lot more touring and developing a strong working relationship with the label. Check out the songs we have up on ..MySpace.. and drop us a line at a show."

"Misguided Aggression has been touring across Canada since 2005 in support of their three independent EPs and has developed a cult following from their jaw-dropping live shows alongside Beneath The Massacre, Arise and Ruin and Ion Dissonance. "Hatchala", the group's national debut, was recorded at Icehouse Studios by producer Thomas Ireland. The group's brand of metal mixes bone crushing brutality and hang-banging grooves that play out as the soundtrack to a drunken bar brawl between Lamb of God, Pantera and Meshuggah."
