American, legendary, technical, metal pioneers ATHEIST have signed a worldwide record deal with the European based label, Agonia Records. The band is expected to release a new studio album, the follow-up to 2010’s critically acclaimed „Jupiter“ in mid to late 2018
Band co-founder & vocalist/songwriter Kelly Shaefer commented: “ 2018 will mark our 30th year of making records. Atheist will embark on a very important album with an important new label along with a great team behind us, including Extreme Management Group. I feel confident that together, and with their anticipated dedication to bringing Atheist to a new level, the band will be poised for a crushing, new record! We cannot wait to begin this new chapter“.
ATHEIST released its first album in 17 years in 2010, returning with „Jupiter“. The album displayed all the elements that the band was recognized for, and demonstrated that ATHEIST stand alone in a style all their own. The band is ready to continue the journey they began from its inception in the late 80’s all the way into its 30th Anniversary, while adding a new bassist who’s quite known in the genre and has great technical abilities, which will allow the band to push the boundaries of the genre and develop a sound that is all ATHEIST. Featuring original founding members Kelly Shaefer and Steve Flynn, ATHEIST are poised to take the next step forward in redefining a genre, that the band were truly architects in creating. ATHEIST will be supporting this next release by touring worldwide!
