"We are really excited to be a part of the Nuclear Blast Family, a great label with a cool roster of bands, which we are proud to be a part of. As of now, we are working hard on the new CD and are looking to finish it up late Winter 2009 / Spring 2010. We can't wait to hit the road and play some of the new cool stuff for everyone and especially all our loyal fans. We look forward to a long relationship with all the great people who work at the label all over the world."
