Our good buddy Matt Darcy — founder of Nefarious Realm Productions — has announced the formation of a management and publicity firm called Ascendance Management, and he’s already signed two bands to his new endeavor.

The first two bands to sign on are metalcore thrashers Orwell — who hail from La Crosse, Wisconsin — and dance metal outfit Widow Sunday from Framingham, Massachusetts.

Orwell are currently in the studio working on their next full-length called Avoh, Fasih with recording engineer and Iron Thrones guitarist Steven Henningsgard. The disc will be out later this year.

Meanwhile, Widow Sunday will be playing the occasional gig, fresh from playing this year’s installment of the Rock Your Face off Fest. The band is working on new material for their next album.
