Austria's MASTIC SCUM have inked a new deal with Germany's Massacre Records.
Guitarist Harry Gandler comments about the signing: "We are proud to announce that we signed a worldwide deal with one of our favorite labels. We know Massacre Records since quite a long time and are happy to be a part of it now!"
The band's currently working on their fifth studio album, which is scheduled to be released in fall 2012. The band recently released the following update on its progress: “We are fucking excited about the new record which follows our last album Dust, our strongest release to date! The new release will be for sure a progression from the song writing and sound production points of view! Most of the song writing is already done, but we still have work to do! The new material so far is fucking brutal, combining shredding rhythms, mosh grooves and grindcore blast attacks! We sure give 100% in the song writing process and we cannot wait to enjoy with everyone the new overdose of brutal distorted structures! Be prepared!! As our goal is to enter the studio in summer, we are very focused on our work and will play just a few live-shows this spring/summer. Nevertheless, we really look forward to grind with you at our upcoming shows!”
