California's deathcore merchants Winds Of Plague (formerly known as Bleak December) have inked a worldwide deal with Century Media Records. Hailing from Los Angeles, these youngsters have their share of Southern CA hardcore roots running in their backyard, though the atmospheric sounds of Scandinavian death and black metal and classic American metal reign supreme in the bands music, too.
“In a scene overwhelmed with fake people and bands thinking they’re the second coming of Christ, WINDS OF PLAGUE strives to create something real”, comments singer, Johnny P.
“Century Media has an excellent history of releasing some of the most groundbreaking metal albums in history”, says bassist, Captain Andrew Glover, “we're glad to be part of this tradition!”
To properly present themselves to their European fans and make loads of new followers out there, Winds Of Plague will head out on a European tour supporting the mighty Shai Hulud.
The band’s second full-length and Century Media debut after 2005’s “A Cold Day In Hell” (Recorse Records) will be completed with producer Daniel Castleman (As I Lay Dying, A Love Ends Suicide) in the coming months and is expected to surface in January 2008.
