|AFTER ALL SIGNS DEAL WITH ROADRUNNER RECORDS!|
|It’s official: Belgian thrashers After All have inked a deal with Roadrunner Records. The new album is set for release in the spring of 2012. After All are currently in the studio recording new songs.
For After All, the collaboration with Roadrunner Records is the ultimate highlight of a year that already was very successful. Although the band remained unsigned for some time following the bankruptcy of their previous label, slowing down never was an option.
In 2011, After All toured Europe as part of Killfest with Overkill, Destruction and Heathen. After All’s self-released EP ‘Becoming The Martyr’ was named demo of the year in Aardschok and demo of the month in Rock Hard.
“As heavy metal kids, we basically grew up on Roadrunner releases”, commented After All guitarist Dries Van Damme. “From ‘Master of puppets’ and ‘Melissa’, to ‘Hell awaits’ and ‘Skeptics apocalypse’: they all came to us through Roadrunner.”
Over the years, After All have been fortunate enough to tour Europe with great Roadrunner bands like King Diamond, Fear Factory, Sepultura, Life Of Agony and Stone Sour.
“To become part of a record label with such a rich history is more than we ever dared to dream of when we started this band”, added Van Damme. “We will wear the Roadrunner logo with pride.”

|YOU ROCKED AT ALCATRAZ METAL FEST!|
|Despite the ungodly hour - our showtime was 11 AM - we opened the Alcatraz Metal Fest in front of an awesome crowd: big and loud! Many thanks to all the metal fans who came out to thrash with us at Alcatraz Metal Fest – and at Dessel Swingt, a couple of hours later on the same day!|
|Special thanks goes out to Guido Gevels of the mighty Cyclone, who joined us on stage as we slammed our way through Cyclone's timeless classic 'In the grip of evil'. Check the video below - courtesy of Henri van Dommelen and Stoneagelightning - and read the awesome review in this month's Rock Tribune!
Our little Alcatraz competition proved to be great fun, too. Thanks for sending us the most outrageous guesses. Jean-Damaniac Scimia (France) sent the right answer and is the winner of the new 'Becoming The Martyr' EP and shirt. Congrats!
