Day Of The Dead Signs To Anchors Aweigh Records

Anchors Aweigh Records has announced the signing of Portuguese hardcore band Day of the Dead.

Day Of The Dead started out as a band in the summer of 2001, establishing themselves as one of the oldest and most solid European hardcore bands. Since then, they've managed to tour Europe for three times, two of them with Just Went Black (New Age Records/Assault Records),
did one East Coast U.S. tour with Ruiner (Bridge 9 Records), did two Iberic tours, one with Endstand (Lifeforce Records/Blacktop Records), the other one also with Just Went Black, did one Brazilian tour
and played tons of shows around Portugal and Spain.

On top of that, they've managed to release a self-titled 7", two split 7"s, one with Ruiner, the other one with The Damage Done (Rivalry Records), one MCD/7" and one full length CD/LP.

2009 will unveil DOTD's new full length entitled "Perspectives," which will definitely allow the band to move forward into a darker and heavier sound,
both musically and lyrically, while keeping their trademark classic raw yet melodic hardcore/punk sound.
"Imagine Unbroken's heaviness, Tragedy's sense of urgency and Kid Dynamite's melodic sensibility
all together," describes the label. "Top it all off with the political and social awareness so much alive during the
90's hardcore scene and you get the idea."

The new album, "Perspectives," will be out aound late February or early March on Anchors Aweigh Records.

You can check out some new songs on the band's MySpace page.
