German power metallers WINTERSTORM have inked a deal with NoiseArt Records and Rock The Nation Booking. The band’s new album is scheduled for release in early 2014.

Comments the group: “Nearly three years have gone since the release of our first album, ‘A Coming Storm’, and since our first show.

“After dozens of gigs (among others one at the Wacken festival of 2012) and after the release of our second album, ‘Kings Will Fall’, we are very proud to have found so many wonderful fans and to have experienced such a lot of positive responses.

“After several offers from various labels, one long-awaited target has come true: we have signed with NoiseArt Records and in addition with the booking company Rock The Nation.

“Although we were excellently supported by Cargo Records and by Edition Two Louder/BMG Rights Management when we released our first two albums ourselves, we are glad to have found another two high-quality partners. That means that in the long run we can concentrate on the things that have motivated us to make music for many years now, i.e. to write songs and to play for the large number of our fans, the ‘stormsons and stormdaughters,’ who have remained so admirably faithful to us for years and thanks to whom we have never had a minute of boredom.

“We are all looking forward to working together successfully and stormily, to lots of new shows and albums. This summer we will start studio recordings and therefore won’t be able to play the same number of gigs as otherwise.”

WINTERSTORM is comfirmed for Beastival 2013, set to take place May 30 – June 1 in Geiselwind, Germany.
