Voivod Signs With Century Media, New LP "Target Earth" Due In January

Legendary Canadian metal act Voivod signed on with Century Media Records, in this, the band's 30th Anniversary. Voivod has been recording its new LP, now officially announced as "Target Earth." The thirteenth studio release will see a January 21, 2013 release through Century Media.

The band commented: "Our goal has been to find a partner for Iron Gang Factory to help get new Voivod music to the world and Century Media, we are proud to say, is the right company to do so globally. We can't wait to release tour and promote 'Target Earth.' ”

Voivod’s 30th anniversary celebrates their career as one of metal’s most influential bands. The handful of live albums, reissues and DVDs that began to surface in the past ten years proved how beloved this band really is, and now comes another album of inspired fresh material that proves Voivod still have many new paths to travel. What band continues to redefine and reinvent themselves 13 studio albums and 30 years into their career? There is only one answer to that question: Voivod.

More information on "Target Earth" is expected soon.
