March 29, 2016, 2 years ago
Eclipse Records has announced the signing of Gothenburg, Sweden’s Despite to an exclusive, worldwide deal. The band features three eight-stringed guitar players.
In late 2014, the band released their single “Chaos Trigger” and quickly got the attention of VH1.com where the band was listed as one of “fifteen more metal bands you should be listening to”. Despite released another single “Praedonum” in mid-2015, and later that year Eclipse Records reached out to the band about signing a deal for 2016 and beyond.
Vocalist Peter Tuthill said of the signing, “I’m really stoked about Despite now being a part of the Eclipse family. I know that Eclipse, with Chris Poland at the rudder, has what it takes to bring Despite to the next level.” Bassist Anthony Cui elaborates, "this is a huge step in Despite’s career, and I’m sure it’ll be a game changer.”
Despite recently wrapped up recording a new full-length album entitled Synergi, which is currently scheduled for release on July 22nd. More details soon.
