7th May 2014 :
NWOBHM legends AVENGER sign with Rocksector Records for the release of
a brand new album "The Slaughter Never Stops"
Avenger have signed with Rocksector Records to release their 3rd album
"The Slaughter Never Stops" on 1st September 2014, their first new release since
1985's "Killer Elite"
Brian Ross, Mick Moore and Gary Young founded Avenger late in 1982
following the break-up of Blitzkrieg. Their debut single "Too Wild To
Tame" followed in October 1983. Shortly after, lead singer Brian Ross
left to join Satan, whilst Satan's singer Ian Swift made the opposite move to
join Avenger and so the band's classic line-up released a debut album
"Blood Sports" in 1984 on Neat Records and toured Europe extensively.
The band's 2nd album
"Killer Elite" was released in 1985, again on Neat Records, along with
3 music videos and later a tour of the United States, yet after
returning to England the band split, with Ian Swift joining Atomkraft
and Gary Young later joining Blitzkrieg.
Avenger's entire discography was re-released in 2002/2003 by Sanctuary
Records, the band re-formed in 2005 and has since toured across Europe
with US rockers Y&T, also appearing alongside Twisted Sister,
Candlemass, Saxon, Diamond Head and Raven.
Now re-united with classic line-up vocalist Ian Swift, a new chapter
begins with shows across Europe and a highly anticipated new album
"The Slaughter Never Stops" set for worldwide release on Rocksector Records in
Mark Appleton of Rocksector Records says "Hooking up with Avenger
is an exciting step. On the one hand the new album is of course a much
anticipated event from a band with history and heritage, but also when
listening to the song Fate, available now as a free download, it's
clear how relevant and vibrant this music remains".
