Maroon Signs Worldwide Deal With Century Media

German powerhouse quintet Maroon have just completed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records and will release the follow-up to their 2004 sophomore album, "When Worlds Collide," on April 18th. The band added a whole new dimension and depth to the watered down metalcore scene and quickly became one of Europe’s most crushing live acts.

Andre Moraweck (vocals) describes the band’s excitement over the new deal:

“Hey everybody, greetings from the snow mountains here in Germany. We’ve just returned from a massive four-week European tour with the almighty Obituary, and we’re happy to announce that we finally completed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records. We are very excited to release our new album, 'When Worlds Collide,' and this effort is the next logical step for us as a band. It’s definitely our most aggressive offering yet. We hope that all the fans in the U.S. join the army of darkness and make this album’s campaign a great one.

“This album is just plain brutal and features more classic metal influences. The disc also features guest appearances by Barney Greenway (vocals) of Napalm Death, Roger Merit (vocals) of Agnostic Front and Mikkel Sandager (vocals) of Mercenary. Our main goal this summer is to extensively tour the U.S., so keep an eye out for the new album and upcoming shows in your area. We hope to see you all very soon.”
