Hertfordshire UK metal outfit Aghast! have been making waves of late, first with the announcement of a new EP entitled Something Else, Something Rotten, which is also a collaboration with US based dubstep and D&B label Abducted Records and more recently with a UK tour in support of the new record. With the band's upward trajectory Aghast! have gotten the attention of the New York based Extreme Management Group, a deal has been signed and this new found partnership has given the band a home on a roster with well known acts such as Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Cryptopsy, Origin, Decrepit Birth, Atheist, Rings of Saturn, Internal Bleeding and more.
Bassist Daniel Henderson comments, "We are delighted to be welcomed into the Extreme Management Group family! We look forward to grabbing this opportunity with both hands. It is an honour and a privilege to share a roster alongside many of the bands that inspired us to make music in our early years as well as some of our new favourites."
EMG's Matt Young adds, "We are excited to welcome Aghast! to the EMG roster. The band have proven in since their existence they are force to be reckoned with having already achieved great things. Aghast! joining the EMG roster will ensure their place in the international scene is solidified as they justly deserve. Exciting times ahead for both the band and management and you can be sure you'll be seeing much more of Aghast! in the future."
