Dark Sermon Joining Sworn Enemy On U.S. Tour Dates

Tampa metal act Dark Sermon has finished production on a new, yet-to-be titled LP due out later this year via eOne Music / Good Fight Music.

“All I can say is that it is certainly a step in a new and interesting direction,” says frontman Johnny Crowder. “As a whole, it is slower, faster, heavier, more engaging, and more mature than ‘In Tongues.’ I think we finally found our true sound. We’re touring extensively in support of this new record, so keep an eye out for dates. Our tour with Sworn Enemy, Wretched, Hammer Fight will kick off our Spring/Summer cycle, and we can’t wait to get back out on the road again.”

Gift Giver Inks Deal With Century Media

Century Media Records has signed a record deal with Detroit area nu-metal band, Gift Giver. The label comments:

“Formed in the fall of 2012, Gift Giver gained notoriety and repute through self-released EP, ‘Daddy Issues,’ and constant touring through the U.S. with acts such as Sworn In, Kublai Khan, Barrier and many more. Appearances at the New England Metal and Hardcore festival, Skate and Surf Fest and Michigan’s own Dirtfest raised their profile even higher, making Gift Giver one of the most buzzed about bands in the scene.”

Vocalist Justin Johnson comments: “We are very proud to announce that we have signed to Century Media Records! We’ve got a brand new full length ready and a couple new singles that will be coming out shortly. We busted our asses, dealt with member changes, and other endless amounts of bullshit to make this record happen- and it’s finally ready! It feels good to have a badass label believe in what we are doing and we hope to see all of your support as well! See you guys on the road.”

The band has also been confirmed for this year’s South By So What?! Festival in March and will be touring with Barrier, Villains, Traitors and Adaliah on the way down to the festival.
