There’s a new band on the roster at Season of Mist.

The Wilmington, North Carolina-based band Wildlights (formerly Crusades) just inked a deal with the label.

The band is currently writing material for its new album, which is being eyed for a 2014 release.

You can hear what the band sounds like here.

Wildlights is the brainchild of ASG vocalist and guitarist Jason Shi and Thunderlip! drummer Johnny Collins.

They’re not metal, but heavy, melodic rock that draws inspiration equally from the blues-based, low-end sound of the U.S. South and driving, melodic skate/desert rock pedigree of Southern California.

So, you may hate it.

Consider your ass warned.
