Translation Loss Records signs Battlefields
Official press release: Translation Loss Records are extremely pleased to announce the addition of Minnesota's Battlefields to their roster. Hailing from the depths of Minnesota, Battlefields have been touring relentlessly for the last three years and accruing massive accolades for their astounding live performances and their two previous records "Stained with the Blood of an Empire" and "Entourage of the Archaic," both released on indie label Init Records. Fresh off their first European tour this summer with Belgium's AmenRa (whom they previously did an extensive US tour with during the spring of 2008), Battlefields new material encompasses a new direction in extreme and epic mind-expansive music. On top of sharing the stage with the likes of Rosetta, Pelican, These Arms Are Snakes, Kylesa, Big Business and Murder by Death to name a few, Battlefields appeared at SXSW this year playing highly successful showcases with the likes of Russian Circles, Coliseum, This Will Destroy You, Yakuza and Genghis Tron. Battlefields' yet untitled Translation Loss debut is currently being recorded at The Devil's Workshop in Minnesota with drummer and engineering Rob Schmidt manning the helm and will be mastered by Nick Zampiello at New Alliance Audio. Battlefields' Translation Loss debut will see an early-2009 release and have the art and graphic design of Paul Romano grace its presence.
