Hirax Signs With Steamhammer/SPV, New LP Expected September 2013

Legendary U.S. thrash band Hirax has inked a worldwide deal with Steamhammer/SPV. The band is expected to enter the studio in early 2013 with a new album expected in September followed by a world tour. The last studio release from the band was in 2009 with "El Rostro de la Muerte."

Frontman Katon W. De Pena commented on the signing: "We are honored to now be a part of the SPV Records family and we appreciate their total support of our thrash metal music. Together we are going to bring the heavy metal music world one hell of a skull crushing album in 2013".

Steamhammer/SPV's A&R head Olly Hahn added:" It´s an honor to have Katon and Hirax on our label. Through all the years Katon held the flag of metal high and also played places of the earth where nobody would. It´s time for another raging violence!"

Upcoming live dates for the band are as follows:

12/22: US-Los Angeles,CA - Key Club (together with Agent Steel)
2/16: MEX-Mexico City - Circo Volador (together with Malevolant Creation)

That's cool to see that happen. Katon told me they might be signing to SPV quite a while ago, but that was a while ago.
