Hamburg, Germany-based metal band A MILLION MILES has inked a deal with Abandon Records for the release of its debut album, “What’s Left Behind”. Due on April 5 via New Music distribution, the CD was recorded at Hammer Studios (GAMMY RAY) in Hamburg with producer Eike Freese of DARK AGE.

After four years of heavily touring the metal underground of Europe, A MILLION MILES signed a publishing deal with Enorm Music, the publishing arm of ICS, which organizes the Wacken Open Air festival, in early 2012.

“It’s been a long hard road for us as a band and we’re excited about this chapter of A MILLION MILES with our new album, which we’ve poured our hearts and souls into making,” said lead vocalist Mona Miluski. “After having played these songs for the last few years on tour, we are looking forward to sharing them on record with all our friends and fans of our band who, like us, have been anxiously awaiting our release.

“Finding the right home and producer was important for us and it was worth the wait. We’re pleased to have signed with Abandon and working with Eike Freese in the studio was an inspiring experience for all of us. He captured the natural beauty and understood our sound. It allowed us to be ourselves, and much like we are on stage, without overproduction.”
