Nuclear Blast Entertainment has announced the signing of seminal psychedelic rock trio EARTHLESS. The band — Isaiah Mitchell (vocals/guitar), Mike Eginton (bass) and Mario Rubalcaba (drums — recently finished recording its fourth full-length album with Dave Catching (EAGLES OF DEATH METAL) at Rancho De La Luna in Joshua Tree, California. An early 2018 release is expected.
"EARTHLESS is beyond stoked to join a label that has kept its independence and vision so strong for thirty years," commented Rubalcaba. "It's crazy to think that I've bought Nuclear Blast releases since I was still in my teens. We are psyched to put out yet another extension of ideas, sounds and the long-going chemistry that this band has forged over the years. There are some new inspired paths musically and vocally on this next album and we are very excited to see it released on Nuclear Blast."
"The vibe out at Rancho is one that gels very naturally for EARTHLESS and lends itself to get creative very comfortably," continued Rubalcaba. "You have nothing else out there to do except absorb the heat, stare at the stars and get in the zone! Dave and I first started talking about doing this project together a few years ago now and it was great to finally make it happen."
Added Mitchell: "Dave was a great person to be around while making this record. Very cool dude. And the studio itself is like a candy store: you want to try everything because there's so much great gear."
