Mumakil Signs To Relapse Records

Relapse Records has announced the signing of Geneva, Switzerland's grindcore band MUMAKIL.

MUMAKIL is currently writing the follow-up album to their debut full-length, "Customized Warfare." MUMAKIL's Sebastien Schacher says of the signing and new album: "We're all really excited here since the signature with Relapse Records. This means a lot of work for us. We are really motivated in recording the most brutal grind CD we're able to. We'll start the recording in the end of August / early September 2008, in Geneva, and will work full-time on it. Our guitarist (Jerome Pellegrini) will carry about all the recording and mixing, and we'll do the mastering in Sweden, at Cutting Room studios."

MUMAKIL also has a number of shows lined up including a performance at the Grind The Nazi Scum Festival in Torgau, Germany this weekend. A listing of confirmed dates and cities can be found below with more to be announced soon.

In addition to Customized Warfare, MUMAKIL has also released a number of split releases including a split with now label-mates MISERY INDEX, a split with INHUME that was released as part of the Relapse Records Slimewave Series, and an upcoming split with BLOCKHEADS coming via Bones Brigade.
