IRON REAGAN: Sign to Relapse Records Recording New Album + Set to Kick Off US Tour
Relapse Records is extremely proud to announce the signing of Richmond, VA hardcore thrash supergroup, IRON REAGAN. Consisting of current and former members of Municipal Waste, Cannabis Corpse, Darkest Hour, Mammoth Grinder, Suppresion and a thousand other killer bands, IRON REAGAN formed in 2012 and consists of Tony Foresta – Vocals, Phil Hall – Guitar, Mark Bronzino – Guitar, Rob Skotis – Bass, and Ryan Parrish – Drums.
The group is currently in the midst of recording their highly anticipated sophomore full-length with guitarist Phil Hall at Blaze of Torment Studios in Richmond, VA and will be self-producing the record before sending it off for mixing with Converge’s Kurt Ballou. A fall release is expected via Relapse Records. Vocalist Tony Foresta commented on the signing and the new material:
“I’ve always wanted to work with Relapse for years. Their reputation of releasing so much great underground music speaks for itself. We are all extremely excited about signing with Relapse and putting out this rager of an upcoming record. Having Kurt Ballou on board mixing is just the icing on he cake. We are about 75% done tracking the record here with Phil in Richmond and between this and the rad tours we have coming up its looking to be a very exciting year. I couldnt think of a better label to put this record out on and am really looking forward to a long future with Relapse.”
Additionally, the band is about to hit the road this Sunday on a seven week run that will take them to SXSW and back and includes dates with Occultist and Ghoul. A complete list of IRON REAGAN Tour Dates is available below.
