While Heaven Wept verlaat Cruz del Sur Music

      26 november 2010

While Heaven Wept heeft Cruz Del Sur Music vaarwel gezegd. Dit deden ze aan de hand van volgend nieuwsbericht:

"We have been holding this statement for a few months now, and it is finally time to speak: Cruz del Sur Music recording artists WHILE HEAVEN WEPT will no longer be part of the label's roster.We are  thrilled, but also sad, to state that WHILE HEAVEN WEPT have signed a new record deal with Nuclear Blast Records.

The following are the press releases from the three parties involved. It is an important moment for Cruz Del Sur Music, passing the While Heaven Wept torch onto Nuclear Blast Records... may it keep on burning high in the Heavy Metal nights!!

"I started working with Tom Phillips on the release of what was going to be "Vast Oceans Lachrymose" in June 2006. Almost 3 years and a half later, the release of "VOL" hit the market provoking an amazing reaction from the people who already loved WHW, but also conquering thousand of new fans. From then on, it was an exciting ride which has seen the CD re-release of their long out of print previous albums, a series of glorious live shows and the peak represented by the forthcoming (19/11) release of their first live album "Triumph: Tragedy: Transcendence" available in a cd/dvd limited edition and on vinyl on Cruz del Sur Music.  It was inevitable that WHW would catch the interest of bigger labels and I am not angry or disillusioned at all. I mainly see their going to a respectable and leading label as Nuclear Blast as a honor and a recognition of our work" Enrico Leccese - Cruz Del Sur Music

"Nuclear Blast is extremely elated to announce the signing of WHILE HEAVEN WEPT!! Last year we were totally blown awayby the release of the album Vast Oceans Lachrymose (out on Cruz del Sur Music) from the US genre-defining and genre-defying metal band WHILE HEAVEN WEPT!  After months of talking with mastermind Tom Philips we are very happy to announce that WHILE HEAVEN WEPT has joined the Nuclear Family!! WHILE HEAVEN WEPT are already in the studio recording their follow up album "Fear of Inifinity" which will be out April 2011." Jaap Wagemaker - A & R Nuclear Blast

"It made perfect sense for us to align with Nuclear Blast, who also have been committed to offering only the very best in the world of Heavy Metal. Through this partnership, we will surely be able to continue delivering the best productions possible while presenting our musical vision in a different arena, betraying neither our past nor our ideals. Nuclear Blast's support of our musical identity is truly an honor, and everyone who has stood by us all along these years need not worry; While Heaven Wept is what it is, and cannot be anything else.Expect the unexpected. We look forward to revealing our new album "Fear Of Infinity" together with Nuclear Blast very soon!"Tom Phillips - While Heaven Wept
