You've read words of this happening all over the net, and now it is official - Roadrunner Records has another addition to the family, please welcome CHIMAIRA. Are you on their mailing list? In case you are not, here is the press release I just received from the band via email - "Cleveland's Chimaira have officially inked a deal with Roadrunner Records. After over 6 months of negotiation, and contemplating offers from other labels, the band decided to sign with Roadrunner, the label that has spawned such acts as Sepultura, Slipknot, Fear Factory, Machine Head, Soulfly, Coal Chamber and Spineshank. Vocalist Mark Hunter had this to say. " Now we finally have an opportunity for our music to be heard. It's a dream come true considering i've wanted to be affiliated with the bands on Roadrunner since I was 13. Ever since I heard Sepultura.I said 'I have to be in a band and get on that label so i can say i'm label mates with such amazing bands.' And although we talked to some other very cool labels that were really into what we were doing, this band BELONGS on Roadrunner. " After the signing bassist JIm La Marca was said to have gone on a drunken rampage through the streets of Cleveland, terrorizing patrons and employees of a local TGI Fridays." Expect things to happen real quick on this project (i.e. Chimaira hitting the studio as early as this month). More words (and some music) to come on this signing, including a quote from Roadrunner A&R. In the meantime, for more info on this act, check out Chimaira's Official Website. Until tomorrow...
