Victory Records has announced the signing of the progressive metalcore outfit AS THEY BURN. The band’s new album is tentatetively due in early 2013.
Emerging from the streets of Paris, France, AS THEY BURN was formed in 2007 by bassist Ronald Pastor, guitarist Fabio Meschini and drummer Milton Bakech. Vocalist Kévin Traore, known for his chillingly aggressive vocals, was enlisted shortly thereafter, along with guitarist Hoby Arinosy.
Comments Bakech: “Being part of the Victory Records family is such a great pleasure and honor. We’ve been giving it our best for a long time trying to make our dreams come true. We want to thank everyone who has supported us over the years. This means the people behind, on and in front of the stage, you are a part of this and it is just the beginning! Love is the law.”
AS THEY BURN‘s debut album, “Aeon’s War”, was digitally released on June 20, 2011.
The band recently toured France, Belgium and Switzerland with their good friends BETRAYING THE MARTYRS, shared the stage with EMMURE at Hellfest and successfully completed its first European headlining tour. They will head back out on “The Age Of Horus” tour in October/November that will take them throughout Europe before making their way to the U.S. in 2013.
