Night In Gales have signed with Lifeforce Records and will issue their new album “Five Scars” through the label on November 08th in North America (a day earlier in Europe.) Band guitarist Jens Basten commented on the signing with the following:

“We’re back, fuck yeah! 17 years after initially cooking our very own brew of German Melodic Death Metal, there’s a new Night In Gales album coming your way!
Five Scars” will definitely be a feast for the melo-death gourmets who might be fed up with all the wannabes who led this great metal style into total insignificance! Lifeforce Records proved themselves as true epicureans, hence we are proud to be part of the Lifeforce family now! “Five Scars” will be out on November 7th, and we’re looking forward to fire up the kitchen with a strong new partner aside!”
