Gothenburg Sweden based metal sextet MARIONETTE has signed a worldwide publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music Scandinavia (MESHUGGAH, SABATON). The band is currently mixing its as-of-yet-untitled third album with Pontus Hjelm (DEAD BY APRIL) at Studio PH in Gothenburg Sweden.
Commented by Warner/Chappell Music Scandinavia’s Sanken Sandqvist: “Sweden has continued to produce quality metal acts for over twenty years now. But MARIONETTE stands out above all for its focus on creating quality metal that is innovative and unconventional, while putting on an excellent, interactive, live show that is above and beyond what most bands with dudes in jeans and t-shirts can do in concert. We look forward to working with these young guys from Gothenburg and helping them grow to new heights.”
Guitarist, backing vocalist, and founding member Aron Parmerud added:
“We are proud to announce that we have signed with Warner Chappell for publishing our previous two albums and our future material. This worldwide deal will give us the support of one of the worlds largest publishing companies, allowing us to focus on creating new and innovative music, which has been our goal since 2005.
“Everyone at the MARIONETTE camp has been 100% focused on the mixing of our third album, which is occurring (as I type) at Studio PH with Pontus Hjelm. This album is by far our most mature release to date; there are a lot of new elements we are introducing to the MARIONETTE sound. We expect to turn a lot of heads with this release, and so far the response to the new material we played live on our “The SlaughTour 2010” headline tour of the UK and dates with DARK TRANQUILLITY earlier this year was received extremely well both by MARIONETTE fans and people who have never seen or heard us before. After our album is mastered in January we look forward to getting back on the road and sharing more new material with everyone who sees us live next year. Some titles of tracks on the album are ‘Something Forgotten’, ‘Remember Your Name’, ‘Stand In Line’ and ‘Lights Out’.”
MARIONETTE recently concluded its “The SlaughTour 2010” UK headline tour and Scandinavian dates supporting Dark Tranquillity: the first tour dates featuring new vocalist Alexander Andersson (ELDRIMNER) who joined the band in the spring.
