Devolved Signs with Unique Leader Records

DEVOLVED has signed a world-wide deal with Unique Leader Records. The band comments:

"We are very proud to announce that we have officially joined forces with extreme metal 'label giants', Unique Leader! All of us in DEVOLVED have been long-time fans of Unique Leader Records and many of the bands they have worked with since the label began. So we are honored to become part of such a respected force in the Metal industry. UL owner Erik has been at the forefront of the extreme music scene for some time now, both as a musician and label owner, so we look forward to working with him to take DEVOLVED to the next level and onward to the Metal masses! We definitely bring our own sound and style to the UL roster, and we are looking forward to the challenge of taking both the band and label forward to new territories within the metal scene.

"Unique Leader will officially release our 'Calculated' album world-wide on August 25th.
The cd is currently being mixed by famed Producer / Engineer Neil Kernon (Cannibal Corpse, Nile, Nevermore, Deicide, Queensryche, Judas Priest) and mastered by Alan Douches (Sepultura, Unearth, Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, God Forbid).

"This will also be our first cd to feature vocalist Kyle Zemanek. The release of 'Calculated' will be followed up with extensive touring throughout the USA and internationally. We will also be recording a second album with Unique Leader which will be set for a 2010 release."
