San Francisco based metal act Early Graves signed on with No Sleep Records. The band will hit the studio in July to record the first album since the the death of vocalist Makh Daniels in a van accident in 2010. John Strachan (The Funeral Pyre), who was also in the accident, took over on vocals. Earlier this year the band began writing and recording demos for a new album with a target release date for sometime this fall.

"After enduring every shitstorm the proverbial 'universe' can throw at us for last few years, we are extremely excited to be releasing our new batch of burners on No Sleep Records," says guitarist Chris Brock. "No Sleep Records may not seem like a likely landing spot for a band like us, but Chris and No Sleep release music that they care about and want to work with, which is something we can definitely get behind. I won't bore with you with a 'our new album sounds like mixed with this mixed with that' or 'it's heavier, faster, more melodic' bullshit, but I will say that we are happy to be releasing it with a label that likes it as much as we do."

No Sleep president Chris Hansen also commented on the signing: “I am really excited to finally announce and welcome Early Graves to the family. These guys bring an amazing blend of Death Metal and Hardcore/Punk to the table, and i could not be happier to have them as our first Metal band. Look for their No Sleep debut LP out this Fall.”

Early Graves released two full length albums: "We: The Guillotine" (2008) and "Goner" (2010) through Metal Blade Records’ imprint, Iron Clad Recordings.
