Official press release: Relapse Records is extremely proud to announce the signing of Richmond, VA's Inter Arma. The group consisting of (T.J. Childers - Drums, Steven Russell - Guitars, Trey Dalton - Guitars, Mike Paparo - Vocals, Joe Kerkes - Bass) formed in 2006 and released their debut full-length Sundown via Forcefield Records in 2010. Combining a punk rock ethos with an esoteric blend of psychedelia, black metal, and doom/sludge, the quintet quickly developed a name for themselves in the underground through relentless touring and mesmerizing live performances. The band commented on the signing: "It's pretty crazy to think that we'll be tacitly associated with bands like Neurosis, Amorphis, Human Remains, Disembowelment, Dillinger Escape Plan, Incantation, Mastodon, et al. That's a pretty high standard to hold yourself to, but we'll give it our damndest." Additionally, the band recently released a brand new 12" EP entitled Destroyer via Toxic Assets Records which can currently be streamed at this location. They plan to finish recording their second full-length and Relapse debut later this summer for an early 2013 release. In the meantime, Inter Arma will be hitting the road in support of the release for a four week run.
