As expected, Canada's Despised Icon have officially signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records. The group has previously released an album with Galy Records, and most recently a split with Bodies In The Gears Of The Apparatus on Relapse Records. Here's a statement from vocalist Alexandre Erian regarding the move: "We are all very excited to join Century Media and can’t wait to release The Healing Process. It’s a privilege for a young band like us to be part of such a dedicated and hard-working label. The name Century Media is synonymous with metal and we couldn’t have found a better family. This means so much to us. We plan on touring as much as possible in 2005. Expect breakdowns as brutal as a kick-in-the-face." The band's Century Media debut, "The Healing Process," was produced by guitarist Yannick St-Amand (Ion Dissonance, Neuraxis), mixed by J-F Dagenais (Misery Index), and mastered by Alan Douches. Look for the album to hit stores on April 5th.
