Have you guys seen your favorite band posting a cryptic photo stating “A New Era of Music Begins” and wondered what’s going on? It’s not a new album from Attila, We Came as Romans, or even Miss May I, unfortunately, but it is something just as exciting:
Nuclear Blast Records is a respected label with a roster that includes Slayer, Nightwish, Carnifex, and Exodus, among others. On June 24th, 2016, they will be launching a brand new label aimed at a younger, Warped Tour-ish demographic, and they’re calling it SharpTone Records. You can even find and like their Facebook page right now while it’s sitting around fifteen likes and no posts.
The most exciting piece of all this? Every single band that’s shared the image described above has a contract with SharpTone Records. This gives the label a massive lead on other emerging labels. This is pretty huge news for the metal and hardcore communities.
For all things SharpTone Records and metal in general, stay tuned here at Metal Lifestyle.
