Century Media Records has announced the signing of Himsa to a worldwide deal.

Himsa further describe their feelings over the new partnership: “We are very excited, thrilled and honored to be asked to join the Century Media army. All of us are huge fans and supporters of the label and have always admired CM's continuous drive for releasing great and memorable albums throughout the years. The relationships that have grown and prospered between CM and other bands on their roster shows the honesty, loyalty and sincerity they have as a family. We feel it is the best move for us as individuals and as a band. With Sammi Curr (guitars) rejoining Himsa and writing new material with Kirby Johnson (guitars), our integrity and passion are at an all-time high with this next step. As soon as the new album is recorded, we will be back on the road destroying your towns."

Himsa's debut full-length, Courting Tragedy and Disaster (2003), was hailed by Revolver as "a manic 11-song effort that's as speedy and raw as it is technical and melodic," earning the band a highlight as one of 10 bands labeled as the "future of metal." However, it was 2006's Hail Horror that began to show what this band was truly capable of, as they let their brutal catchiness naturally coexist alongside musical complexity. The album, produced by the renowned Tue Madsen (The Haunted, Mnemic), perfected the formula that has allowed the band to continue building their own niche in the current metal scene and gaining attention from MTV, FUSE, Revolver, Guitar World, Outburn, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer and countless other outlets.

In other news, Himsa have been added to the Century Family's Third Annual Christmas Balls show, which takes place Wednesday, Dec. 13 th at The Key Club in Hollywood, CA. The event will also feature the LA based quintet In This Moment and will be headlined by Sweden's Dream Evil, who will be making their American debut and only U.S. appearance of 2006.
