Relapse Records announces the signing of Richmond, VA’s INTER ARMA. The band featuring T.J. Childers (drums), Steven Russell (guitars), Trey Dalton (guitars), Mike Paparo (vocals), and Joe Kerkes (bass), formed in 2006 and released their debut full-length, Sundown, via Forcefield Records in 2010.

Combining a punk rock ethos with an esoteric blend of psychedelia, black metal, and doom/sludge, the quintet quickly developed a name for themselves in the underground through relentless touring and mesmerizing live performances.

The band commented on the signing: “It's pretty crazy to think that we'll be tacitly associated with bands like NEUROSIS, AMORPHIS,

HUMAN REMAINS, DISEMBOWELMENT, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, INCANTATION, MASTODON, et al. That's a pretty high standard to hold yourself to, but we'll give it our damndest."

Inter Arma recently released a brand new 12” EP, entitled Destroyer, via Toxic Assets Records which can currently be streamed below:
