In The Midst Of Lions Signs To Strike First Records

Strike First Records has issued the following statement about signing a record deal with Christian deathcore band In The Midst of Lions:

"We are happy to welcome In The Midst Of Lions to the Strike First Records family of bands. Their debut album “Out Of Darkness” will be out on May 26 and you can pre-order it now in our online store. Check out a new song on the bands myspace. In The Midst Of Lions will be playing at Cornerstone Festival this summer on the Anchor stage as part of the Facedown / Strike First day there, so stay posted for all the info on that and keep your eyes out for more ITMOL tour dates.

"In the Midst of Lions play vicious deathcore in the service of a higher power. A mixture of fast-paced tech metal and melodic worship, their music can be compared to such contemporaries as The Faceless, Meshuggah and Veil of Maya, with the addition of the fact that ITMOL packs a serious spiritual punch. Our generation is in dire need of a savior. It has become trendy to cast out our Lord, we are here to bring the truth. ITMOL's truth comes under the guise of death metal laced with explosive breakdowns and inspirational live shows."
