Defeater sign with Epitaph, announce tour with Counterparts, Capsize, Better Off, and Hotel Books

Boston punk rockers Defeater have inked a deal with Epitaph Records and will be releasing a new record through the label later this year. Vocalist Derek Archambault said of the signing:

“After a year away from touring and nearly two of immobility, I have never been happier to push forward with Defeater. Releasing a new album with a label I have bought records from for more than 20 years still doesn’t feel real. Like many of my peers, Epitaph‘s 90’s roster was a big part of the soundtrack to my teenage years. Signing to Epitaph and a full U.S. tour this spring has the makings of a banner year for Defeater.”

The band also announced a spring tour with Counterparts, Capsize, Better Off, and Hotel Books:
