Late 2013 Release Expected From Sanctuary As Band Signs With Century Media

Seattle's Sanctuary, featuring Warrell Dane (Nevermore), have signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records. The long awaited return album "The Year The Sun Died" is expected for a late 2013 release through the label.

The announcement reads: "Century Media Records is proud to announce the signing of the legendary Seattle metal band Sanctuary. In 2010, four of the founding members, Warrel Dane, Jim Sheppard, Lenny Rutledge and Dave Budbill, came together for a few select reunion performances. At first, it was just going to be a handful of shows, but the response and chemistry on stage was so overwhelming that the guys changed their minds. Now, some 20 years after they left off, Sanctuary will continue with their unique mix of US power metal, hard rock and progressive elements and begin work on a new LP. To complete the line-up, Brad Hull (Forced Entry) will be filling in for former guitar player Sean Blosl. A late 2013 release is planned."

The band commented:

Warrel Dane: "Having been with Century Media since 1995 with Nevermore, it was a very comfortable decision for Sanctuary to sign with them. Century Media has a great team that always delivers for all of their bands. I've known most of them on a first name basis for many years and I look forward to this new chapter in history."

Lenny Rutledge: "I can speak for every member of Sanctuary when I say we are all excited to join the Century Media family. We now have the opportunity to work with the best metal record label on the planet. We are looking forward to creating great music with an awesome team behind us."
