Sony Music’s metal label Music For Nations has announced two new signings, in the form of post-rock band Blanket and metalcore act Bury Tomorrow. Under their deal, Blanket will record their debut album for the label, while Bury Tomorrow are getting to work on their fifth.

“To sign to a label as important and influential as Music For Nations seemed like an unobtainable dream for us”, says Blanket’s Bobby Pook. “This is something that we’ve all wanted since we started playing music. The team at the label share our vision and aspirations of what we want this band to be. We’re putting our all into this record and we are excited to show it to the world”.

Meanwhile Bury Tomorrow’s Daniel Winter-Bates adds: “We are really excited to form a new partnership with Sony and Music For Nations. After ten years as a band, we’ve found a team that are on our page. The enthusiasm, knowledge and direction they’ve shown, made it a no brainer to move forward with this partnership”.

Music For Nations boss Julie Weir says: “It’s an exciting time for MFN – with a powerful chunk of heavy heritage behind us, we are looking to the future with a broad stable of new and talented artists that excite us both as fans and industry. We are looking forward to getting our teeth into the global plans for both Blanket and Bury Tomorrow”.

As previously reported, Music For Nations was revived as a reissues label in 2015, before being made a frontline operation again, with Visible Noise founder Weir in charge, in April last year.
