Century Media Records and King Foo Entertainment announce the signing of a worldwide deal to unleash the next three Finntroll albums. Jens Prueter, Head Of A&R at Century Media Europe: "We are proud to sign Finntroll worldwide to Century Media Records. We started working with them in 2001 when we licensed 'Jaktens Tid' and the following two albums from their previous label Spinefarm for release in Germany, Benelux and North America. Since then we became good friends going through great times like a massive co-headline show at Wacken 2006 (to be seen on the 'Ur Jordens Djup' bonus DVD), the experience of a Fisherman's Friend Vodka Cocktail and many other great moments blurred by further alcohol abuse. And we also went through bad times like Teemu 'Somnium' Raimorantas funeral, the day we had to bring Tundra to a doctor because his infected feet was already smelling bad and the Earthshaker Roadshock Tour 2007 that was cancelled after a few shows because of disastrous organisation. Apart from that, we just love Finntroll for their unique dark blend of traditional Finnish hoedown-music and folky black metal. There are only a few bands in metal that have such a unique style and we can't wait to hear the upcoming album. Kippis!" Finntroll adds: "Yeah, that's right peeps. We're most enthusiastic to announce our signing with Century Media Records. We decided to continue our long co-op with CM, thanks to Jens 'very special' Prueter and Mr. Rosie of King Foo. Finntroll felt it's time to work directly with CM this time as we have all the trust with them and they have never let us down in the past. Our new album will be released worldwide through CM in early 2010, and with that said we're gonna do some heavy touring, that’s gonna start in February in Europe and after that we're gonna sail across the ocean to North America. See ya on the road!"
