Tasmanian metal outfit Psycroptic has just scored a major worldwide deal with Nuclear Blast Records.
If you’re not a metal fan, you might not realise how important the deal is but for metal bands, this is the jackpot.
“Nuclear Blast has always been the pinnacle of labels within the metal realm, and to be signed with them is a huge honor for us … and to be the first Tasmanian band to ever be on the label is a pretty awesome bonus as well,” the band said in a statement. “The artist roster is nothing short of amazing, and for Psycroptic to be added to it … well, we couldn’t be happier!!”
The buzz has been slowly building since the band formed in 1999. They’ve released three albums, and there’s another one planned for October. Psycroptic are currently wowing crowds in the US on their Summer Slaughter tour.
Congrats lads – onwards and upwards!
