Blackened deathcore act Ov Sulfur shared some big news with their followers today. Not only did they announce that they have signed to Century Media Records, but they also shared details regarding an awesome fan contest.
Per a press release regarding the band’s signing to Century Media Records, Ov Sulfur have shared the following:
“We’re beyond excited to join forces with Century Media, whose stellar roster speaks for itself. They’ve been at the forefront of every scene, regularly picking up the best each subgenre has to offer right before it really explodes. That they saw promise in us was truly affirming and invigorating, especially after only a year-and-a-bit as a band.”
Along with this news, the band have announced that they have a new single coming out June 8th titled “Wide Open”; there is also a contest associated with this new song. Those who pre-save/pre-add the upcoming song (via this link here) will be entered into a contest, with one lucky individual winning frontman Ricky Hoover’s custom made “Wide Open” shirt, seen in the band’s previous music video for “Behind the Hand of God” and during all their live shows.
You can find the music video for “Behind the Hand of God” below:
Regarding this shirt and contest, the band shared the following:
“We’ve been teasing ‘Wide Open’ since our first music video, where Ricky wore a custom-made shirt that quickly became his stage gear. We’re happy that this liminal song will serve as our first release on Century Media, closing the last chapter and ushering in a new one.”
The band continues:
“Fans have been asking about where to get that shirt for AGES, and as of now you can—well one person can. One person who pre-saves/pre-adds the single will win Ricky’s original shirt. (Don’t worry, we’ll wash it first.) We’ve also got a revamped version playing off the single art for sale on our Indie Merch store.”
Will you be taking part in this fan contest and pre-saving the band’s upcoming new song “Wide Open”?
The band’s latest release is that of their EP Oblivion, which came out last August.
