Relapse Records has announced the signing of North Carolina’s finest psychedelic, stoner punks ASG. The band will enter the studio in February 2012 with producer Matt Hyde (SLAYER, CHILDREN OF BODOM, FU MANCHU) to begin recording its highly anticipated new album .

Impossible to pigeonhole, ASG has been wheelin’ and dealin’ in kick-ass rock ‘n’ roll since forming in 2001. The band has previously released four albums, including its most recent, critically acclaimed effort, “Win Us Over”, in 2007.

ASG has gained a reputation for its wildly energetic live shows, and has found itself on the road with heavy hitters MOTÖRHEAD, THE SWORD, CKY, FU MANCHU, TORCHE and THE DWARVES, among others.

Commented ASG guitarist/vocalist Jason Shi: “To be part of such a well-respected music label like Relapse and to be included in their roster of bands both past and present is quite an honor for us.

“We plan to record our first release on Relapse in the winter of 2012 with Matt Hyde and are very excited for everyone to hear it! We are amping!”
