King Diamond Signs New Deal With Metal Blade Records

It has been more than five years since the last King Diamond studio album, and now the legendary vocalist has announced he has signed a new three-album deal with Metal Blade Records.

“This is gonna be awesome! Another perfect piece of the puzzle. We have the full backup of Metal Blade, and there’s an understanding between us that goes much, much deeper than before,” says King Diamond. “Our new business setup will noticeably benefit the fans in so many ways. You must have already noticed some of all the cool new stuff that is happening. Now we can’t wait to get out there and start touring again!”

After having a triple bypass in 2010, King is fully recovered, feeling better than ever and ready to get back to making music. The band made a triumphant return to the stage this year at the Hellfest festival in France and the Sweden Rock festival. In addition to King, the lineup includes Andy La Rocque (guitar/keyboards), Mike Wead (guitar), Hal Patino (bass) and Matt Thompson (drums).

If you’re looking for a Christmas gift for that King Diamond fan in your life, the band recently unveiled a line of holiday merchandise. You can sport a ‘No Presents for Christmas’ hoodie, or buy some King Diamond Christmas ornaments to decorate the tree.
