Voivod have had almost as many labels as they have studio albums. It looks like that trend is continuing, as the band have announced that they’ve signed with Century Media to coincide with their 30th Anniversary in 2013. Target Earth will be released on Century on January 22nd, 2013 in North America, and a day earlier in the rest of the world. The band gave a comment on behalf of their company, Iron Gang Factory:
“Our goal has been to find a partner for Iron Gang Factory to help get new VOIVOD music to the world and Century Media, we are proud to say, is the right company to do so globally,” they commented. “We can’t wait to release, tour, and promote ‘Target Earth.’”
Target Earth will be the band’s 13th studio album. Each of their last seven studio albums has been on a different label. The band’s lineup, on the other hand, has at least remained stable for the last four years. And the Canadian prog band’s last several albums have been solid, so here’s hoping Target Earth keeps it up.
