American rock act CKY (featuring Chad I Ginsburg, Jess Margera and Matt Deis) just signed a worldwide record deal with Entertainment One Music (eOne Music) and plans on releasing a brand new full-length album this summer.

Scott Givens, SVP of eOne Music, says, “All of us at Entertainment One are elated to have CKY join us and are looking forward unleashing an amazing new record this summer.”

“We are thrilled to be working with one of the most progressive record labels in the music business today,” adds vocalist Chad I Ginsburg. ”CKY is looking forward to a long partnership in great music for the entire world with eOne!”

CKY also just announced a slew of tour dates highlighted by a summer long trek with the 2017 Vans Warped Tour. This is the band’s first time CKY will be returning to the Warped Tour since 2000. But first the band will head over to the U.K. to do thirteen show run, some of which is already sold out.

DC metal band Gloom just signed a worldwide deal with Entertainment One Music / Lifeblood Inc. and is releasing an all new track today titled “Cede” – listen in below. Gloom will release the “Solaris” full-length album on June 2nd, 2017.

“We couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Lifeblood and eOne family,” says the band. “We’ve been hunkered down working so hard that I don’t think the reality has set in for all of us. We’re just really grateful to have such high a quality team backing us.

“‘Solaris’ is our first full length and while we were writing the album we really wanted to bring all our individual influences to the table and create something dynamic. We really want to carve out our own niche in metal and ‘Solaris’ is a big step in that direction. For us, ‘Cede’ is a good musical representation of some of the different styles you’ll hear on the album. Lyrically, it’s about breaking the cycle of a bad on-off relationship I had for years and finding a place where I could grow out of those feelings.”

Furthermore, Gloom will open the Devastation on the Nation Festival tour throughout the U.S. and Canada from 5/19 – 6/11 alongside Cryptopsy, Decrepit Birth, Rivers of Nihil, The Zenith Passage, The Kennedy Veil, Visceral Disgorge, and Seeker.

Swiss band Future Faces just debuted first track “Embraces” online, which can be heard below. Mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Beastmilk, Okkultokrati) and with artwork designed by Jonathan Sirit (Belgrado), the group’s debut EP “Revolt” will be released May 26th on 12″ vinyl via Throatruiner Records and GPS Prod.

With hypnotic drums, abyssal bass lines, elegant yet unpolished guitar work and reverb-drenched vocals, each track is a slow condescension into a lightness, enveloping sound, and the birth certificate of a band that is nothing but full of promises.
