Wraith sign three album US record deal and to release back catalogue with unreleased tracks
A year after releasing one of the best albums of the year, UK rockers Wraith have released some big news as they have signed a three album US record deal and will be releasing their back catalog along with some bonus unreleased tracks.
The following messages were recently posted on Wraith‘s Facebook page (with caps removed):
“Awesome!! Just signed a 3 album U.S Record Deal, 1st release next spring

M E Y A L !!!”
“Release of back catalogue and bonus unreleased tracks now imminent METAL!!!”
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Wraith‘s last studio album Revelation, which ended at #5 on the Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2017:
“A couple of months ago, a friend of mine and I were chatting about which albums that we really liked that had been released in 2017. The band name Wraith came up and frankly, I had never heard of them. I was told that they sounded very ’80s like and pretty similar to Ratt. I was sold right away and checked them out a few days later. I was impressed with what I heard, posted an article on Sleaze Roxx about them and purchased their new album Revelation. Since receiving the CD, I have selfishly been playing it without letting you — the Sleaze Roxx readers — know about one of the best albums of the year.
As it turns out, Revelation appears to be UK rockers Wraith‘s sixth studio album. The group started back in 1987 and released four albums before disbanding in 1998. Another album followed in 2006 before the group regrouped for its 25th year anniversary in 2012. While I do hear some Ratt influences in many of Wraith‘s songs on Revelation such as on the bonus track “Hunted”, Wraith are definitely not clones of Ratt in any way. If anything, Wraith‘s songs are for the most part faster paced and slightly heavier than Ratt, and singer Ryan Coggin‘s cleaner voice won’t be mistaken for Stephen Pearcy‘s raspy delivery anytime soon.”
