HORISONT sign worldwide deal with Century Media Records


unnamed (4)On the eve of their 10 year anniversary, and after headlining a special show at the Göteborg Rockfest, Swedish hardrock band HORISONT are pleased to announce the next chapter within their illustrious career by putting pen to paper and confirming a worldwide deal with Century Media Records. Formed in 2006, HORISONT have spent the last decade establishing themselves within the Scandinavian retro-rock revival scene, along with peers such as Witchcraft, Graveyard etc, thus creating a sound that takes the foundations of the movement while injecting hearty doses of boogie blues, infusing prog complexities and finishing it all off with that good ole NWOBHM swagger!
After releasing their fourth full length album entitled Odyssey in late 2015, HORISONT completed a 6 week tour across Europe with Kadavar along with their new label mates The Shrine, which helped gain further attention from Century Media, and now before the ink has dried on their brand new deal, HORISONT are bust writing the follow up toOdyssey and plan to enter the studio this summer with the plan to unleash another album guaranteed to get heads banging in 2017!

 

The band comments: We are super excited to be signing with the mighty and highly acclaimed Century Media and look very much forward to be working together. Right now we are in the most creative era of this bands existence and this will spill right over into the new album we are currently working on. The first taster off the new stuff will hit the streets by the fall and we’re pretty sure it will electrocute your soul. In the meantime – see you on the road!”
Jens Prueter, head Of A&R Century Media Europe, comments: “I first saw HORISONT at the Rock Hard Festival in 2013 where they turned the amphitheater into a sea of head banging and beer raising. Seeing them again last year, I was impressed how they took their retro influences and progressed into a league of their own. These guys are as tight as their trousers. Looking forward to join their journey! Thanks to all of the guys and the equally amazing Peter from Crusher Records who discovered them first and is still the captain of the ship!”
Stay tuned for more news about the recording of the new album, further live appearances as well as the release of a brand new single before the sun sets on 2016!
