Reformed deathcore legends Despised Icon have inked a new deal with Nuclear Blast Records, who are set to handle the forthcoming release of their new album ‘Beast’, penciled for a Summer release. You can check out what the band and label had to say below:
Despised Icon: ‘It’s been 7 years since our last record and our batteries are fully recharged. The O.G. line-up is back and the new shit hits hard. You’ll hear sounds of our older slammin’ death metal days blended with the speed and technicality of our latest records. Cheers to everyone that has stood by us after all these years. Can’t wait to unleash the Beast’.
Nuclear Blast‘s Roy Culver: ‘I signed DESPISED ICON to Century Media back in 2004 after hearing their debut record ‘Consumed By Your Poison’. The band perfected the mix of ferocious, technical death metal with a modern take on hardcore and their first record for the label, ‘The Healing Process’, broadened the minds of a whole new generation of metal heads. I love these guys and couldn’t be happier to be working with them again here at Nuclear Blast. The Icon is back!’
