Napalm Death’s next album will once again be released through Century Media Records.
The label has renewed its deal with British grindcore legends.
“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),” says Jens Prüter, head of A&R for Century Media, in a statement.
“Therefore I’m even more glad about Napalm Death re-signing to Century Media for more great albums of intelligent and meaningful noise.”
The band’s frontman, Mark ‘Barney’ Greenway, had this to say: “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,” Barney adds. “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?”
