Praise the powers that be! Ovid’s Withering, the band that released my personal favorite album of last year, have finally inked a long-overdue record deal with none other than Unique Leader Records. Check out more info after the jump!
Of the new partnership, the band had this to say:
“Unique Leader has been home to so many of our favorite bands, and it’s an honor to call ourselves labelmates to a group of true musical legends. Our partnership with UL lets us take OVID’S WITHERING to the next level while keeping control of the massive thematic vision collectively spanning the next two albums. See you in 2015!”
Unique Leader Records label head Erik Lindmark added:
“In the overwhelming onslaught of extreme metal bands in the scene today it is great to find an act with so much originality and raw music writing talent. We are pleased to welcome OVID’S WITHERING to Unique Leader Records.”
Ovid’s Withering fits in with Unique Leader like a glove, and it is awesome to see them finally signed to a bigger label. The prospect of a new album from them makes me extremely excited, and with Unique Leader behind them, it will get an even more widespread release than Scryers of the Ibis did, which means more people can hear their music, and it also means (hopefully) bigger tours. Everything about this is fantastic news, and I sincerely hope you’re as stoked as I am.
If you’ve yet to hear their debut masterpiece, Scryers of the Ibis, do yourself a favor and stream it below, then buy it. These guys deserve all the support they can get.
