Pure Steel Records is proud to announce the official signing of NWoBHM Legends Weapon UK, a band with a rich tradition who have influenced the likes of Metallica and so many other bands around the world!
In 1980, Weapon UK supported Motorhead on the mammoth 32 date "Ace Up Your Sleeve" UK Tour, following which Lemmy proclaimed them to be "the best band we've ever toured with." With this signing, the band is currently working on the forthcoming new album that will see its release in 2018 on CD, Vinyl and DDL!
Along with the new album, Pure Steel is also set to re-release the band's classic 1980 album "Set the Stage Alight" in a special 35th Anniversary Edition. The album which stood dormant for many years will now be made available as special vinyl release presenting it to metal fans as it was meant to be! Finally, Pure Steel will be re-releasing the critically acclaimed "Rising From The Ashes" as a special vinyl release also. The album was originally released in 2014 on CD & Digital Download only.
The band commented: "Weapon UK are very pleased and proud to be working with our great friends at Pure Steel Records. It is of the utmost importance to us to be working with people who believe in the legacy of Weapon as much as we do. On this basis Andreas Lorenz, Bob Mitchell and all the team at Pure Steel have our complete confidence in ensuring that our new baby will be unleashed upon the world with love, dedication and respect".
