Unto Others Sign With Roadrunner Records, Debut “When Will Gods Work Be Done”


Unto Others (formerly known as Idle Hands) have signed a deal with Roadrunner Records. Coinciding with the announcement of the band’s signing is the below debut of their new single “When Will Gods Work Be Done“. The band recorded that effort with Arthur Rizk (Soulfly, Power Trip), while Brock Grossi directed the below music video for it.

Vocalist/guitarist Gabriel Franco commented:

“Our last full length came out over two years ago and much has changed, including the band and I, our name, etc… so I consider this a reintroduction of ‘us’ to those who connected with our music in the past, as well as a debut for the many who haven’t. We did our best, and that’s all we can do. So out of the frying pan, and into the fire, I think we have all been frying long enough.”

Roadrunner Records‘ SVP of A&R Dave Rath added:

“Having Unto Others join us at Roadrunner Records feels like a ‘welcome home’ to a family member we’ve been waiting for – for a very long time. Unto Others’ innovative combination of goth, rock and metal brings the genre to entirely new and unique places. They are pushing the genre beyond the expected to create a blend of heavy, dark, melodic songs combined with traditional metal we haven’t heard in quite some time. We are incredibly excited for this band to be part of the label’s storied legacy.”

Speaking with Decibel, Franco said about this new single:

“I wrote the bulk of it in a couple hours one day. It was one of those songs, where your inhibitions take a backseat, and everything just comes together, for better or worse. Lyrically, it’s a song about evil. Things that shouldn’t happen but do. I prefer whoever’s listening hears whatever they want to hear, so I won’t get too deep into details, but it’s one of my favorite tracks on the record.”

He also confirmed that there’s a new album in the works from the band, though release details were not divulged. Currently Unto Others are scheduled to join Behemoth, Arch Enemy and Carcass on the below European/UK tour:
