Cassius Sign With Lifeforce Records America

Lifeforce Records America has announced the signing of Richmond, VA's CASSIUS.

Lifeforce Records America president Drew Juergens commented on the signing: "I am very pleased to welcome CASSIUS to the Lifeforce Records America family, as their debut album, 'I Am Jim Jones', showcases a remarkable grasp on the current state of metal and hardcore while expressing amazing growth and potential to think outside the box that is the ever-consuming stale state of metalcore today! I am confident that CASSIUS will turn a lot of heads and will be out on the road slaying night after night."

CASSIUS vocalist Myke Terry added: "We are thankful for the opportunity to work with Lifeforce Records America and are excited about the the prospect of taking our band to the next level. We appreciate everyone who has helped us get to where we are today and can only hope to meet more positive influences on our travels in the months, and even years to come."

CASSIUS was formed in the winter of 2003 in Richmond, Virginia. Drawing members from previous local bands, the band began writing new material and playing regional shows. After many setbacks and line up changes, CASSIUS decided it was time to buckle down and get serious. After recording their debut full-length, "I Am Jim Jones", with Chris Dowhan from Red Planet Studios (SCARLET, TWELVE TRIBES, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER), CASSIUS cancelled the lease on their apartment, bought a van and trailer and began booking whatever tours they could. Hard work and strong friendships brought them to their current position and with focus and determination, CASSIUS are hell bent on making themselves a house hold name within the metal and hardcore community. Despite not having a record to tour on previously, CASSIUS has already completed successful tours with bands like ED GEIN, MISERY SIGNALS, ION DISSONANCE, THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD, and DESPISED ICON, to name a few. Nonstop touring and constructing thought provoking music are CASSIUS's only ambitions, so expect to see and hear a lot about them in the days to come!

CASSIUS's full-length endeavor, "I Am Jim Jones", is set to street January 9, 2007.
