Dark Tranquillity Re-Sign With Century Media Records

Official Century Media Records press release:

Century Media Records have renewed their deal for the 3rd time with Swedish melodic death metal legends, Dark Tranquillity. The influential band from Gothenburg released their first album on Century Media Records in 1999 and since then have released 6 albums plus 2 DVDs and a handful of special releases.

Jens Prueter, Head Of A&R at Century Media Europe: “I start to believe in Numerology. 13 years ago Dark Tranquillity signed their first contract with Century Media Records. Friday the 13th of April I met Mikael Stanne and Niklas Sundin for the Roadburn festival at the lovely 013 venue in Tilburg to receive the signed copies of their 3rd Century Media contract for 3 more albums. The 3 of us had about 13 beers to celebrate it. It’s amazing how Dark Tranquillity are able to express their legacy as one of the original godfathers of the melodic death metal / Gothenburg sound without sounding outdated today. They always managed to stick to their roots and develop to new heights at the same time. Looking forward to the next album in 2013. Cheers!”

The band comments: “After such a long history together, we’re more confident than ever that Century Media is the perfect working partner for Dark Tranquillity. In a climate where a lot of record labels are weighed down by cynicism or have just plain given up in the face of the rapidly changing industry climate, Century Media are still enthusiastic and forward thinking and take huge pride in releasing great music that matters. Here’s to another 13 years!”
