Official press release:
Eclipse Records is extremely excited to announce the signing of Gothenburg, Sweden’s Despite to an exclusive, worldwide deal. Featuring three eight-string guitar players, this band is so heavy and down-tuned their music makes the Richter scale overload!
In late 2014, the band released their single “Chaos Trigger” and quickly got the attention of VH1.com where the band was listed as one of “fifteen more metal bands you should be listening to”. Listen to “Chaos Trigger” below. Despite released another single “Praedonum” in mid-2015, and later that year Eclipse Records reached out to the band about signing a deal for 2016 and beyond.
Vocalist Peter Tuthill said of the signing:
“I’m really stoked about Despite now being a part of the Eclipse family. I know that Eclipse, with Chris Poland at the rudder, has what it takes to bring Despite to the next level.”
Bassist Anthony Cui elaborates:
“This is a huge step in Despite’s career, and I’m sure it’ll be a game changer.”
Despite recently wrapped up recording a new full-length album entitled Synergi, which is currently scheduled for release on July 22, 2016. More details about Synergi coming soon…
