Dockyard1 has announced the signing of legendary American Heavy Metal band Virgin Steele! After the collaboration on the re-releases of "Age Of Consent" and "Noble Savage" which made those legendary albums available again, Virgin Steele now signed a new recording contract! "This took quite awhile to conclude, as it was a difficult decision to make in regards to who to sign with, as we were offered several very good agreements from various labels, but in the end we decided to go with DOCKYARD 1, as we have a very long history with several of the key members of the team there and have always enjoyed working with them", said David DeFeis, the Virgin Steele's vocalist.
A brand new album is expected for about January 2009. DeFeis claims: "If all goes well we should be able to issue a new album sometime between January and March."
