SFC Records has issued the following statement about inking a record deal with Eighty Thousand Dead:
"80 Thousand Dead is not just a statistic, it is the name of the newest band in the SFC records roster. Formed in early 2007 in Goshen, Indiana, USA these guys have continued to create the most uncompromising and punishing material possible. This is a new breed of tech brutal death, bringing the rhythms of upcoming apocalypse supported with melodies of death.
"The new album from Eighty Thousand Dead will be released this year on SFC Records. The rapid, skull-cracking cocktail of grinded human bones and flesh will leave an everlasting mark on your eardrums!"
