Nuclear Blast Records has announced a curiously acoustic band signing today, issuing this statement:
“We are happy to announce that Witchcraft main man Magnus Pelander’s solo project Pelander has officially signed to Nuclear Blast Records. After his latest journey with Witchcraft, 2016’s ‘Nucleus,’ the multi-instrumentalist and lyricist extraordinaire Magnus Pelander returns to his solo career. The project can be recognized without a doubt as being tied to the cult doom/rock band, still exploring other paths and going full on acoustic.”
Magnus Pelander comments: “At last my first solo album is done and soon to be released. I cannot believe this is true.”
Commented Nuclear Blast A&R representative Markus Jakob: “We’re thrilled to not only work with a gifted artist as Magnus on his main band but now also on his solo career. Both Witchcraft and Pelander have always stood for variety, artistic freedom and development which we’re more than happy to support. Prepare yourself for another deep and intense look into the mind and musical vision of a genius!”
Today Pelander also announces that the as-of-yet untitled successor to 2010’s “A Sinner’s Child”? EP will be released later this year. More details about Magnus Pelander’s second solo album will be revealed soon.
