Into Eternity signs with M-Theory Audio
Official press release: The Canadian extreme progressive metal quintet Into Eternity recently unveiled a new song, "Fringes of Psychosis," which marked the first official taste of their long-awaited sixth album, The Sirens. Today, M-Theory Audio is proud to announce the group's signing, and that the record will be released on October 26. Physical pre-orders are available now, while a digital pre-order is underway on Bandcamp. Originally, Into Eternity intended to self-release The Sirens after a planned release through a European label fell through, but the group recently reconnected with M-Theory Audio president Marco Barbieri, who served as president of Century Media Records when the band released such acclaimed albums as Buried In Oblivion (2004) and The Scattering Of Ashes (2006). The Sirens – which features guest appearances by former vocalist Stu Block (now in Iced Earth), Cam Dixon (ex-Annihilator) and Glen Drover (ex-Megadeth) – sees Into Eternity firing on all cylinders, with Amanda Kiernan's fierce vocals and Tim Roth's trademark guitar heroics and vocal harmonies backed by longtime bassist Troy Bleich and newer recruits Bryan James Newbury (drums) and Matt Cuthberston (guitars, also of Untimely Demise). The album was co-produced, mixed and mastered by former guitarist Justin Bender, while longtime artist Mattias Noren (Evergrey, Epica, Kamelot) designed the cover and layout. Says founding guitarist Tim Roth, "First of all, Into Eternity would like to thank all of our fans for the support regarding this new album we're about to release. The original plan was to release it independently ourselves, but the plan has changed. We are pumped to announce that we are now releasing 'The Sirens' worldwide through M-Theory Audio! Thanks go out to Marco for reaching out to us and providing us a new deal that we simply could not refuse. Into Eternity worked for years and years with Marco when he was president of Century Media, so for us this is a perfect fit for our band. Unfortunately, this does mean that we will be pushing back our release date until October, as our new label is going to need some time to manufacture and properly promote the release. Thanks again to everyone for the longtime support, and you'll all be hearing 'The Sirens' in the coming months!"
