INTEGRITY Signs With RELAPSE RECORDS
Relapse Records has announced the signing of hardcore legends INTEGRITY.
Originally formed in 1988, INTEGRITY is known for being one of the most incendiary and influential bands in American hardcore and modern metal history. The group, which has issued eleven full-length albums and a litany of splits/EPs, including a recent split with POWER TRIP, will enter the studio later this year to record its new album for a 2017 release.
INTEGRITY frontman Dwid Hellion commented on the new material and signing: “It is a great honor to be a part of the Relapse family. I have been a longtime admirer of the label and excited to have our new album released under the Relapse banner.
“INTEGRITY has always been a creature of destruction and introspection. The ever-beginning end. A lesson in lechery and weaponized love. Forever culling forth the demons of deep within to enchant our congregation with serrated scripture.
“We have been writing the new INTEGRITY album throughout the past year. Whittling away at forbidden deities and forgotten curses until we arrive with chapter and verse.”
INTEGRITY will headline this year’s This Is Hardcore Fest in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The band recently contributed a cover version of R.U.G.‘s “Deathly Fighter” for Decibel‘s Flexi Disc Series.
