COFFINS Sign To Relapse Records



Let's move on to less somber news. Aforementioned Japanese Doom/Death band Coffins has just recently signed to Relapse Records. First they release a 2XCD comp of their singles entitled Ancient Torture, then they announce an album of sludge covers, and now this new full-length on Relapse - all to be released this year (with a couple of singles and splits as well no doubt.) There's a reason these guys are one of my favorite bands. Here's the press release:

"Relapse Records is proud to announce the signing of COFFINS.

COFFINS is a three piece death / doom band from Tokyo, Japan that formed in 1996 and has previously released three full-length albums and numerous split releases. The band is currently writing for their fourth full-length and Relapse debut with plans to record later this year.

COFFINS will embark on their first-ever European tour this April alongside SOURVEIN and AGUIRRE as part of the “Doom Over Europe” tour. This tour will conclude with a performance as part of the sold-out Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Netherlands. A listing of confirmed tour dates and cities can be found at Coffins.jp."
