Earache Records is proud to announce the signing of North Carolina’s HOUR OF 13 to a worldwide recording deal.

HOUR OF 13 have built up a formidable reputation in underground circles for their potent brand of occult-inspired doom-laden metal. The band recently performed their debut show at the ‘Dublin Doom Day’ Festival in Ireland, to rapturous response.

Their debut US show takes place in New York on October 16.

Guitarist and founder CHAD DAVIS commented on the deal:

“We, Hour Of 13, are proud to have become part of the Earache Records legacy. The support the label has shown to a host of influential bands over the years has been essential to the growth of real, original music, and we could not be more pleased to have become one of those bands. This is a monumental step for Hour Of 13, and we’re glad to have Earache on our side.”

Earache will re-release the band’s last album, ‘THE RITUALIST’, in early 2011, which will be supported by further live appearances throughout the year.
