Iron Reagan, spearheaded by frontman Tony Foresta (Municipal Waste) and members/ex-members of Darkest Hour and Cannabis Corpse have been signed to Relapse Records. The band is also currently recording their followup to Worse Than Dead, their debut that came out last year. On mixing duty for the album is none other than Converge’s Kurt Ballou, who is just popping up everywhere nowadays.
Tony Foresta commented on the signing:
“I’ve always wanted to work with Relapse for years. Their reputation of releasing so much great underground music speaks for itself. We are all extremely excited about signing with Relapse and putting out this rager of an upcoming record. Having Kurt Ballou on board mixing is just the icing on he cake. We are about 75% done tracking the record here with Phil in Richmond and between this and the rad tours we have coming up its looking to be a very exciting year. I couldn’t think of a better label to put this record out on and am really looking forward to a long future with Relapse.”
The band’s second album is expected to be out by the fall.
