Synastry signs w/ Year Of The Sun Records
Official press release: Montreal based death metal quartet Synastry have signed with Year of the Sun Records for the release of their upcoming debut album "Blind Eyes Bleed." The band has scheduled a May 13th, 2008 release date through Year of the Sun Records with a supporting Canadian tour to follow. "All of us in Synastry are eager and thrilled that Blind Eyes Bleed will be issued through Canada's own Year of the Sun Records. We are confident that Year of the Sun and Synastry's union is one of the most logical steps in Synastry's evolution," commented Synastry frontman Jimmy Anastasopoulos. "As we join the family of quality bands already on Year of the Sun's roster, we will be able to bring Synastry's live show to many more cities and constant and intensive touring will be our top priority so our fans will get to see us up close and personal." Synastry has quickly risen through the ranks of the Canadian death metal scene. The band's non-stop work ethic has earned them spots opening for heavyweights like Rotting Christ, Forever In Terror, and 3 Mile Scream while the group's online presence has made them the #1 ranked unsigned band in MySpace's Death Metal category. "Montreal has always been a breeding ground for innovative metal bands and we're very excited to be working with a band like Synastry" said label founder Chris Benn. "When you look at the landscape of bands out there, it's always exciting when your ears get a taste of something unique. Synastry brings that to the table." Synastry's debut album, "Blind Eyes Bleed" was produced and engineered by Slaves on Dope guitarist Kevin Jardine and features guest appearances by The Agonist's frontwoman Alissa White Gluz and former Arch Enemy founding vocalist Johan Liiva. Synastry is currently streaming tracks from forthcoming debut album here.
