Speaking of signing with Peacevillegroup founder and main man, Mirai Kawashimasaid, “I followed Peaceville‘s story from the very beginning. I mean band albums like DEVIATED INSTINCT, ELECTRO HIPPIES, LOSS, AXEGRUDER, AUTOPSY, LOST PARADISE etc were my favorite music when I was young. (and they still are!) When I visited London a few years ago, I met Paul (although we’ve known each other for about 20 years now) and talked about a possible re-release of Contempt Defeat and, as you may know, it actually happened and went very well. So when SIGH needed a new home for the new album, Peaceville was an obvious choice. I’m very happy to work with them and can’t wait for the new album to be released by them later this year!
Paul Groundwell, Peacevilleadds the tag manager: “both intrigued and captivated by SIGH since the release of timeless Contempt Defeatwith oriental themes, CELTIC GELTinted riffs and also the effective integration of the piano into an underground type sound, there has always been a certain black magic in the band that made them unique among many in the early 90s scene. Definitely , SIGH moved on to bigger things and much-deserved success, exploring and embracing the weird and the wonderful without artistic compromise over the years. Venturing into the realms of avant-garde and more traditional classic metal, the heart of the old school has always remained. And so, with such impressive work preceding them, we are thrilled to witness this next chapter in the band’s legacy on Peaceville.”
