KAMELOT Inks Deal With Napalm RecordsWednesday, 14th January 2015
Multi-national symphonic metal heroes KAMELOT entered the studio in mid-2014 to begin recording the follow-up to their acclaimed 2012 album Silverthorn. The new CD will be released in April/May worldwide (excluding Asia) via Napalm Records as part of an exclusive licensing deal through the band’s Kamelot Music LLC.
“We are extremely excited about having a growing and hungry independent label like Napalm with the power of major distribution that we will get with Universal and ADA Warner,” states KAMELOT founder and guitarist Thomas Youngblood.
Adds Thomas Caser, vice president of Napalm Records: “Being a fan since the band’s Epica release, it has always been a dream for me to work with KAMELOT! Finally this dream has come true, and we at Napalm Records are delighted and honored to announce this signing. I foresee a bright future and we will spare no effort to bring the band to where they deserve to be — the top!
“Watch out for the band’s monumental new album this spring and witness KAMELOT and Napalm Records conquering the world in 2015!”
In support of KAMELOT’s next album, the band will hit the road starting in March for select U.K. shows, followed by a massive North American tour this spring, with special guests DRAGONFORCE. Select summer festival appearances will follow before the group returns to Europe in September/October for its biggest headlining tour to date.
