Swedish/British modern metallers SONIC SYNDICATE have inked a recording and publishing deal with Despotz Records & Music. The band’s sixth album will be released later this year.
Comments SONIC SYNDICATE vocalist Nathan J Biggs: “As you could imagine, we are super excited to be signing to Despotz Records based here in Stockholm, Sweden. We couldn’t imagine a better place to call home.
“When the possibility of us working together first came up with this modern, creative and forward-thinking team, we pretty much had our mind set that this was where we belong.
“This is an exciting new chapter for both SONIC SYNDICATE and Despotz.”
Despotz is a Swedish metal/rock/pop record label / publishing company which was founded in Stockholm in 2007 with artists such as RAUBTIER, THUNDERMOTHER, CRUCIFIED BARBARA, TAD MOROSE, BESEECH and many more.
Despotz co-founder and managing partner Carl-Marcus Gidlöf comments: “We at Despotz have recently taken the label international and have locked in fresh new exciting opportunities in North America with Sony / RED / Aisa. This signing further proves that our plan to work internationally, based here in Stockholm, directly with our artists combined with a strong PR/marketing and distribution setup is the future of Despotz. SONIC SYNDICATE share our vision, we’ve already had a number of creative conversations and we’re looking towards an exciting future. We’re honored to welcome SONIC SYNDICATE to the Despotz family.”
SONIC SYNDICATE last year parted ways with longtime bassist Karin Axelsson and replaced her with Michel “Miche” Bärzén (DEGRADEAD).
