Metal Blade Records recently teamed up with Alan Averill 'Nemtheanga' of Primordial for distribution of his label Poison Tongue Records. U.K. act Darkest Era has now issued the following update about signing to the label:

"It is with great pleasure that we can finally announce we have signed a worldwide deal with Metal Blade records! We have been working closely with them over the past few months in settling a deal, aided by Alan Averill of Primordial in his new A&R role for Metal Blade. We are wasting no time and will be recording our debut album on the 26th August, with a release date to fall approximately on the turn of the new year.

"The only details I can give so far are that there will be 8 tracks of the epic, soaring, celtic laden melancholy that we've been developing over the past few years. There will be a few re-recordings from our EPs, and one entirely acoustic track. It's a big step for us but one which we feel has come at the ideal time; we are really ready to step onto the international stage and forge on with the passion and fire that has led us this far.

"We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported us so far: our Irish fans who have been behind us since the Nemesis days; all our European fans and those further afield who bought our CD's, who sent us many messages of support and have championed us in their respective countries; and to those we have met on our travels, shared a beer with and sang a song with. We will almost certainly be touring widely in support of this next year. Germany, Greece, Italy, we shall return! The rest of you, prepare for a heathen invasion!"
