Razor & Tie has announced the addition of newly formed Orange County, California- based act I AM WAR to its label and publishing rosters. The group, which is led by Alex Varkatzas (vocals; ATREYU) and Brandan Schieppati (guitar, vocals; BLEEDING THROUGH), joins Razor & Tie for an exclusive, multi-album, North American deal.
I AM WAR is currently writing and demoing material for its debut album, set for release in the spring of 2012.
“Brandan and I are extremely happy to sign with Razor & Tie,” said Varkatzas. “We feel like they fully understand the musical intentions of I AM WAR, and we couldn’t be more excited about our future. I am personally looking forward to making the most extreme record I have ever been a part of. We are looking forward to creating an album filled with super-aggressive, heavy, energetic metallic, raw, punky hardcore. The kind of music that boils your blood and inspires you to get up and move.”
A demo version of the I AM WAR song “The Poisoning” can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
