Nuclear Blast dürfen voller Stolz das weltweite Signing der San Francisco Doom Rocker ORCHID bekannt geben. Die Band kommentiert: „After many months of talking to different labels about our future, we’re very excited to announce that we've decided to join forces with Nuclear Blast. We’ve been working on new material on and off for the last year and we’re feeling really good about the new songs. It seems like they're a continuation in the same tradition of the material on our first full length, „Capricorn“, but also, show some new sides of our music that should surprise everyone and show that ORCHID isn't a band that just wants to keep making the same album over and over. We're really excited for everyone to hear it!“ Nuclear Blast Head of A&R Andy Siry fügt hinzu: „Ever since we first heard of ORCHID and witnessed their perfect way of bringing back the glorious days of rock music, we knew we had to work with this amazing band. After meeting them on their most recent European tour we literally were blown away by their stunningly intense performance! So here we are, proud as f*ck, welcoming one of the most hopefully and authentic bands to the Nuclear Blast family. Every single one at the label loves ORCHID and so will you! CHECK THEM OUT!“ Seit ihrer Gründung 2006, hat die Band um Sänger Theo Mindell (seines Zeichens international bekannter Tattoo-Künstler – ) mit ihren ersten Veröffentlichungen „Through The Devil's Doorway“ (EP, 2009) und „Capricorn“ (Album, 2011) globale Aufmerksamkeit erregt. Den Videoclip zum Titeltrack des Albums, ein Interview mit Rock Hard-Chef Götz Kühnemund sowie weitere ORCHID-Songs können auf dem Facebook-Profil der Band über die Buttons „Listen“ & „Videos“ gestreamt werden: Mehr Info zu der ersten Veröffentlichung über Nuclear Blast gibt es in Kürze.
