Official press release:

Portland, Oregon melodic metal act, Across The Sun, has signed with Metal Blade Records. Across The Sun has spent the last four years touring across the US and promoting their three EPs: This War (2006), Storms Weathered (2008), and their most recent effort, Pestilence and Rapture (2009), which was released via indie label, Authentik Ink.

Across The Sun vocalist Brandon Davis comments: "We are beyond ecstatic to be signing with Metal Blade Records! They are coming up on 30 years as the best metal label on the planet, and we are honored to now be a part of that history. This really is a dream come true for us, as we have made this band our lives' work. It's so amazing seeing our hard work and dedication culminate with this once in a lifetime opportunity, we are truly blessed. Our upcoming tour promises to be a great time every single night, we hope to see you all at a show this summer and beyond!"

Drummer Alan Ashcraft adds: "Metal Blade is a great fit for us, because their familiarity with metal music is unrivaled. Across The Sun is at its strongest, and is capable of anything. With such a great label behind us, we're confident that metal fans will have some amazing things to look forward to."

Across The Sun has built a dedicated underground fan base through hundreds of shows and plain old hard work. That work continues this summer as the band hits the road once again with Throw The Fight, Gwen Stacy, and more, as well playing Transmission Festival with August Burns Red, Vanna, Living Sacrifice, etc. on August 6th and 7th. Their full schedule is on their Myspace page.

Metal Blade president Mike Faley comments: "'Heavy, Melodic, Brutal, Dynamic' are only a few ways to describe Across The Sun. With recording set for this year and touring next year, Across The Sun will be a band that demands your attention."
