Thursday, 6th March 2014

Swedish all-girl hard rock quartet CRUCIFIED BARBARA has signed a recording and publishing deal with Despotz Records. The band is putting the finishing touches on its fourth album for an August release.

Said CRUCIFIED BARBARA in a statement: “We have more energy and take a much clearer position than ever before, and the result has been so far our absolute best, hardest and most important album.

“We are super excited to have signed with Despotz. The album of the year deserves a fantastic record label.”

Added Despotz co-founder and partner Ömer Akay: “The signing of CRUCIFIED BARBARA fits perfectly in line with our strategy and goal to be a choice for Sweden’s biggest rock bands, where they can work closely with a local Stockholm-based music company on a global basis with an international PR and distribution network. We are incredibly proud that these wonderfully gifted musicians chose to sign with Despotz.”

CRUCIFIED BARBARA’s latest album, The Midnight Chase, was released in May 2012 in Europe and in July 2012 in North America via Nuclear Blast.
