The Nottingham by way of Gibraltar based metal quintet The Five Hundred has just announced that the band has signed a recording deal with Long Branch Records.
Aggressive yet euphoric, empowering yet simultaneously enslaving, The Five Hundred is renowned for overcoming adversities and laying siege to every stage they play. From struggling with Tourette's, OCD, gambling and drug addiction, to perfecting the art and proving that together the band is a force of nature, now is the band's time to share with the world how it battled through vices and has come out on top.
Flo from Long Branch says this about the signing: "We are proud to welcome another up-and-coming-band with a very unique sound to our roster. The Five Hundred's new album convinced me right away with it's thick riffs and grooves, followed by stadium-sing-along-choruses. Without any doubt this is a special band with a bright future and we are proud to be part of this!"
The first new single from the upcoming album will be released on June 1st, followed by the album later this year.
