The fine music lovers at Relapse are just the kind of passionate people we want to spread the decibel gospel with and we feel confident that this is gonna be a very sweet ride together.”

Meanwhile, Cherubs will soon enter Cacophony Recorders in Austin, TX with Erik Wofford (Explosions In The Sky, Black Angels) to begin tracking their debut for the label, which will be their fifth full-length album overall. They had the following to say of their new label home:

“We are very excited to be working with Relapse. They are curious about our hillbilly ways and are letting us prance clumsily around the enclosure.

This will be our second longplay in the modern world and will surely be an improvement on previous efforts. Some working titles include: Coke Adds Life, Hiding a Body, Breath U Can C, Tourista, and Crying Real Wolves – themes include yearning, regret and revolution. Thank you, Relapse, for the opportunity – xoxo.

We’ll be recording with Erik Wofford at Cacophony Recorders in Austin. His place is beautiful. His dog barks. His amps bite. He has worked with Cani Sciorri, Grupo Fantasma, Bill Callahan, Black Angels, Explosions In The Sky, Holy Wave, Golden Dawn Arkestra… and more! We just want to be on the list.”
