Opiate For The Masses, the quartet from Los Angeles, have signed a worldwide record deal with Century Media Records.

Opiate For The Masses are also proud to announce the addition of renowned bassist Anna Kjellberg (ex-Drain STH, Hanzel Und Gretyl, Revolting Cocks) to the fold, which immediately adds another great dynamic to their already devastating live show.

They recently completed work on their much anticipated new full-length album, "Manifesto," recorded by two Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum producers: Ulrich Wild (Slipknot, Deftones) and John Travis (Kid Rock, Buckcherry). The new offering is a propulsive mix of sheer hard rock aggression, soaring melodies and electronic experimentation that could be best described as Alice In Chains meets Prodigy. Manifesto is slated for a summer release. You can visit the group's Myspace to check out some older tracks, photos and videos.

Kaufman further comments: "Since its conception, Opiate For The Masses has been a band in a constant state of transformation. Unwilling to change course merely to fit in among the flavors of the week, this band has gained popularity by blazing new trails for others to follow. The completion of our latest and boldest album, Manifesto, signals a new era for the band's experimentation, yet the resulting sound is something more accessible to the masses.

"We are also extremely pleased with the addition of world-renown musicians, Seven Antonopoulos and Anna K, as their great recording and live contributions added so much depth to our arsenal. The group feels that the final puzzle piece has been put into place as it has teamed up with Century Media to release this musically ground-breaking record. This is such a great opportunity for band and label alike. Both parties are comprised of forward-thinking, hard-working and true fans of music."

Opiate For The Masses created a solid buzz and diehard fanbase with their self-produced debut album, "The Spore," backed by a slew of major tours alongside Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, My Chemical Romance and Static-X, among countless others. They were also a featured act on the inaugural Taste of Chaos tour. A track from the upcoming album, "Dead Underground," originally appeared on the Saw III soundtrack and exposed the band to a whole new audience.
