Bullet Sign With Nuclear Blast Records
August 16, 2011
A new chapter will be added to the success story of Swedish up-and-comers Bullet, whose boundless love to 80s Heavy Metal led to the band’s founding a decade ago. The passionate metal quartet around vocalist Hell Hofer and guitarist Hampus Klang will be part of the big Nuclear Blast family from now on!
With three successful albums — of which two reached #3 on the Swedish charts and one topped the Sleaze Roxx Top 10 — and numerous tours (for example, together with their fellow countrymen HammerFall and Sabaton in 2009) the gunslingers were able to achieve a wide and solid fanbase. And as for the future, Bullet still have quite a few hot bullets in the barrel!
Full of euphoria, the band comments their signing with Nuclear Blast as follows, “Finally we have signed a deal with Nuclear Blast! We’ve always been a band with a lot of ideas and now it’s time to let them all loose. We think Nuclear Blast is the right label to help us out to make better records, cooler shows and more of everything that you’ve come to know as Bullet. We are really looking forward to releasing a new album on Nuclear Blast, because it is a great chance for us to reach new crowds and countries. Bullet will always be Bullet, hate it or love it. Now is the time to make it more powerful. STAY WILD!”
On the part of Nuclear Blast, the pleasure is great as well. “We’re highly delighted to welcome Bullet at the Nuclear Blast family” states Andy Siry, head of A&R. “The boys of Bullet aren’t only downright likeable and honest guys, they also live their music and embody the original spirit of Rock’n’Roll. Bullet are superb on their albums as well as live on stage and we’re noticing a constant development. Now we want to vault the ‘Highway Pirates’ into a higher division.”
