Metal Blade Records has announced the worldwide signing of Chicago-based metal/hardcore unit, Harm’s Way. Currently writing the follow-up to 2015’s “Rust,” Harm’s Way is expected to release their fourth full-length and Metal Blade Records debut in 2017.
Harm’s Way shares, “We are very excited to be working with Metal Blade Records. Their longstanding history in the alternative music community speaks volumes. To join a roster of such highly influential artists is truly an honor. We look forward to the next steps we will be taking as a band on both personal and artistic levels.”
Metal Blade Records CEO Brian Slagel adds, “Super excited to be working with Harm’s Way! We welcome them to the Metal Blade family. I have been a fan since Chris Santos turned me onto them!”
Harm’s Way has emerged from the wreckage of past genres to set a new standard in contemporary heavy music. With their latest offering, “Rust,” the four-piece brilliantly combines industrial repetition (ala Godflesh) with the aggressive attack of metal/hardcore. “Rust” continues down the path that Harm’s Way started when they formed in 2006, before releasing 2009’s “Reality Approaches,”2011’s “Isolation,” and several EPs. Fans can expect another seminal album with the group’s upcoming, currently untitled record – which will surely raise the bar for heavy music once again.
