Pallbearer have have officially signed with Nuclear Blast Records and have released some new music to celebrate the news. Speaking of their new label arrangement, the band commented:

“We are very honored to announce that we have signed a worldwide record deal with Nuclear Blast. We had the great privilege of working with them on the European distribution of our previous album, and it was quite clear that this was the next logical step for us. We greatly look forward to continuing our work with Monte Conner and his legendary team at the label, as well as being included amongst a truly unparalleled group of some of heavy music’s greatest artists of the modern era.”

Along with word of the signing comes the release of a new single, “Atlantis“. That track was released as part of Sub Pop Records‘ ‘Sub Pop Singles Club‘ and can be streamed below. It is backed by a live version of “Thorns“. Regarding this new offering, the band stated:

“We’re very excited to finally be able to share another piece of new material with you. As many of you probably know by now, Pallbearer has always been very ‘album-oriented’ — when we are writing music, it’s often with the big picture in mind. However, we also thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to release pieces that might not necessarily fit into a larger album.

Thanks to the Sub Pop Singles Series, we were thrilled to have the chance to write a brand new song, ‘Atlantis‘, plus also document how ‘Thorns‘, a song from our previous LP had taken on a different bit of attitude after being roadworn for a couple of years.”

Though currently writing material for their next album, Pallbearer‘s upcoming touring plans include two belated 10th anniversary shows which will find them performing their 2012 debut album “Sorrow And Extinction” in full along with other fan favorites. Here’s how their schedule looks:

07/13 Little Rock, AR – Rev Room (performing “Sorrow & Extinction“)
