Victory Records has checked in with the following statement about upcoming releases in the new year:

"After a successful 2012, Victory Records has summoned their army, with the drive and conviction to make 2013 rock harder than ever before. Pushing boundaries and coloring outside of the lines is to be expected, with a new year, comes a renewed sense of brutality and vengeance; an opportunity to unite fans of all music genres across the world.

"Never one to disappoint, Victory fan favorite Otep plans to deliver her final studio album; an awe-inspiring tale of a girl who has been cast aside, heart set on revenge against the cold world in Hydra, to be released January 22nd.

"The label debut albums of Fall City Fall's Victus and Continents’ Idle Hands, will also be unleashed on January 22nd; already being called some of the most dynamic, raw hardcore collections in a longtime by Outburn.

"Love is in the air February 19th for the release of Will, Love, Life, from Paris’ As They Burn, one of Victory’s most promising guttural, metalcore signings of 2012.

"A re-issue and new studio album from metal legends Jungle Rot in addition to the triumphant return of punk-folk kings The Tossers have hundreds of thousands waiting in anticipation.

"Fans can prepare for more debut releases from dynamic new signing Tear Out The Heart, Blackguard, Close Your Eyes, and many more. Amidst the new releases and constant tours and festivals, it is safe to say that there will never be a dull moment in 2013."

The sooner oteps gone the better.
What a negative, pissy, unlikeable c*** in every way imaginable.
Life really did a number on her, she did a show with cavalerra conspiracy 2 years ago and it was a total screw you performance, short, uninspired, uncanny and heartless.it was evident she did not wanna be there.
2012 might have been good for CMR, but i'll bet 2013 wont.

Victory Records has been sh*t for a long time! '13 will be no different. That label has maybe one or two bands I'll give the time of day, the rest is rubbish.

If I follow any bands from Victory, they are Within The Ruins, Wretched, and Jungle Rot. Everything else sort of falls short for me.

I was gonna say Jungle Rot definitely. Within the Ruins are good also. Not much going for Victory nowadays it seems. 15 years ago, they put out some really good sh*t!

victory records has been utter crap for a while. 15 years ago they had hatebreed, blood for blood, warzone, all out war and a bunch of other good bands. They pretty much sold their soul to make a lot of easy money off of cheesy terrible emo bands....cool story victory records bro...

Way back in the day, I remember enjoying bands like Autumn Offering and a few releases by Atreyu. New Blackguard should be interesting to see.
