Flotsam And Jetsam: Ink New Deal with Metal Blade Records

Flotsam And Jetsam, arguably one of the most influential and prominent acts from thrash metal’s birth in the early 80s, has returned to Metal Blade Records to release their new album, Ugly Noise. The lead single/title track is now available for streaming here.

Ugly Noise is the band’s eleventh full-length album, their first release on Metal Blade since 2001, and the follow up to their 2010 album, The Cold. The record also heralds the return of original members Michael Gilbert on guitar and Kelly David Smith on drums, who haven’t recorded with Flotsam And Jetsam since High in 1997.

Flotsam And Jetsam’s Kelly Smith comments on working with Metal Blade: “We have just inked a distribution deal for the release of “Ugly Noise” through Metal Blade Records. Ugly Noise will be released worldwide in April of 2013. It was the obvious choice for us after our long-standing relationship and Metal Blades 30 year history of metal. You can’t match what they can do with 30 years of experience behind them. We are excited and looking forward to working with MB in 2013.”

About Hayls (125 Articles)
(ex-Editor / ex-Author ) I live in Colchester (UK) with my dog, Athena, where I’m studying Creative Writing at the University of Essex. My favourite metal genres are probably folk, doom, black, symphonic and gothic but I listen to pretty much every metal sub-genre! At the end of the day if I like something, I don’t give a shit what genre the music is, I’m going to listen to it! My favourite band will make most metalheads cringe in horror, so I’m going to go ahead and not mention who they are or risk losing all credibility as a metal fan!   <a href=""><span style="color: #0000ff;"><em>Posts by Hayley.</em></span></a>
