Ferret Music signs Chimaira

Chimaira's recent record deal with Ferret Music is now official. Ferret will release the Cleveland, OH band's upcoming album in North America, while Nuclear Blast Records will release the effort elsewhere. Here's a statement from the group: "Well it's official! We've wrapped things up and signed two record deals! The first one being with Ferret Music for our home turf North America. We have known the guys over at Ferret for many years and they are great friends. We look forward to building off that friendship and making great records together. We knew we wanted to sign to Ferret right away and it was a great feeling to hear they felt the same way about Chimaira. They have a vision for this band that just blows us away, and we feel very fortunate to finally be working with a team that understands us. For our friends outside of the US, we have linked up with Nuclear Blast. We met these guys on the European Sounds Of The Underground tour and were so thrilled to learn that they too were big of fans of Chimaira. They had this hunger in their eyes that showed us they were going to sign Chimaira if it was the last thing they did. That made us feel incredible. Not to mention the owner promised us his Porsche if we signed...we are holding you to that Marc! On a serious note, both Nuclear and Ferret have great ideas to deliver some killer goods to the fans. Things have never felt as good for us as they do right now, and it's due in part to the killer music we're creating, plus the faith and enthusiasm we're seeing from the awesome group of guys over there at the labels. Chimaira still has an abundance of life and creativity flowing through our veins, and this new chapter in our lives may prove to be our greatest. Get ready for the most real, most passionate, and most technically punishing Chimaira record yet!" The band is currently in the studio preparing to record their new album, "Resurrection," which will hit streets in Spring 2007.
