Napalm Death Re-Signs With Century Media Records

Century Media Records has renewed its deal with Napalm Death. In regards to the re-signing, Jens Prüter (Head of A&R, Century Media Records) comments, “Napalm Death is not only one of the most important and influential extreme metal bands, they are also a band that always raises their voice against social ills– and even against record companies (remember ‘Enemy Of Music Business’). Therefore I’m even more glad about Napalm Death re-signing to Century Media for more great albums of intelligent and meaningful noise. And have you ever seen a weak Napalm Death show? I haven’t, and I have seen them MANY times and will never get tired to see them again and again. Thanks to Mitch, Danny, Shane and Barney for their resilience and resistance– and a special thanks to Marc from MAD for fighting on their side.”

Napalm Death vocalist Mark “Barney” Greenway also comments, “We’re very happy to be re-signing to Century Media. In fact, I think it’s the first time we’ve actually re-signed on a longer term deal with anybody since the days when we didn’t strictly know that we could be digging ourselves a big hole with labels…It’s important for Napalm to stay with an independent, and Century proved to us with their overall enthusiasm and attention that this is where we needed to be. There’s a perfect balance of getting the band out there in people’s faces whilst still understanding the point that not everything is acceptable or ‘ethical’ promotion. It’s more like working with friends who actually care, and who could argue with that?”

The band finished recording the upcoming 14th studio album earlier this year at Parlour Studio in Kettering, U.K. with long-time producer Russ Russell, and the group is currently on the road in Russia. You can catch Napalm Death live on the following dates:

10/3-Kingston-Time To Laugh
