DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER - Re-sign with Nuclear Blast!

DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER - Re-sign! - 2020-08-14

2020-08-14 - The world's premier metal label, Nuclear Blast Records, is proud to announce that DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER re-sign a new deal with the label. The legendary German Metal band is currently in the studio, recording the follow-up to »Der Rote Reiter«. The new album is due to be released in 2021 via Nuclear Blast.

DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER from Weimar, Germany, are the flagship of German extreme Metal and focus on passionate playing and exude high energy, with their lyrics covering a broad spectrum from love to downfall. After the latest successful release »Der Rote Reiter« the band has decided to sign a new deal with Nuclear Blast to continue their triumphant ride straight through the apocalypse.

The band comments: "Our old deal with Nuclear Blast ended after the release of our last album and it actually took us three years to think about how to go on from there. There were many options available, even the option to start our own label. But since we’re still a do-it-yourself band without management, we’re so busy anyways that we ultimately decided against that and re-signed to Nuclear Blast. Even though a lot of things have changed at the label and some old friends are no longer working there, after many phone calls and trust-building meetings, we decided to continue our collaboration. We already started working on the follow-up to "Der Rote Reiter" in 2018. We didn’t set a firm date for the release, but gave the album some time to grow and take shape. The recording sessions in Hamburg have already started, but they may still take until the end of this year"

Sadly DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER announce their 25th anniversary show in Leipzg - Haus Auensee - in December 2020 had to be rescheduled to April 3rd 2021, but they are still planning a special surprise for that show.

Jens Prueter, Head of A&R at Nuclear Blast Europe, comments about the band’s re-signing: “25 years of Die Apokalyptischen Reiter? Has it really been that long? Yet there are still musical boundaries to be broken, and there are still obstacles to overcome in the minds that they denounce in their lyrics. There is still a lot of work to do and we need them for the next 25 years. Therefore, it is a special pleasure for me that in their anniversary year they have extended their contract with Nuclear Blast so that the label can continue to help them ride through the apocalypse and spread creative chaos. The next ride is scheduled for 2021. Neither they nor we can stop the apocalypse, but at least we can make it a little more colourful. We raise our glasses to that! Cheers!"

This year is also the 20th anniversary of their classic »All You Need Is Love« and there will be a re-release of the long-sold-out vinyl edition shortly before Christmas.

There will be much more coming soon, check out DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER social media accounts.

The band's latest album »Der Rote Reiter« was released in 2017 and entered the official German album charts sensationally at #10. Order it now, here: http://nblast.de/DARDerRoteReiterNB
