Three of the hottest new properties on the rock and metal planet have inked deals with Spinefarm Records/Candlelight ahead of a busy 2017.

Entheos, In Search Of Sun and From Beyond will all release new albums later this year.

And all three bands are excited about working with a label that already includes a diverse array of talent including Airbourne, Michael Monroe, Whiskey Myers, Bullet For My Valentine and Venom.

Entheos are putting the finishing touches to their second long player and their Spinefarm debut. The band, who include former members of Animals As Leaders, Faceless and Scale The Summit, said: “We are excited to announce that we have signed with Spinefarm Records.

“After meeting and spending a little time with each person who works at the label, we can honestly say that not only are they some of the coolest, most down to earth people we have met in this industry.

“They truly believe in our vision for this band. We are proud to be a part of such an amazing team and roster of bands.”

In Search Of Sun are one step ahead of their new label mates after completing the recording, mixing and mastering of brand new album Virgin Funk Mother.

The London-based alt rockers will precede their new long player’s release with singles and live shows and said: “We are truly proud to announce that we have signed a deal with Spinefarm Records.

“It is a pleasure to be a part of such a great roster of bands and we look forward to beginning this new chapter in our career alongside a team of passionate individuals who truly believe in our vision.”

Spinefarm Records’ imprint Candlelight have snapped up From Beyond – a band that’s honed its live craft touring with The Sword, Purson, Truckfighters and Saint Vitus.

Following a string of EP releases the heavy metal heroes said: “From Beyond is so excited to announce its signing with Candelight Records. We can’t wait for you all to hear what comes next.”
