March 31st, 2016

Charleston, West Virginia-based groove metal band Byzantine have signed an album contract with Metal Blade Records, revealing this development on March 31st, 2016.

Byzantine’s sixth full-length studio album The Cicada Tree is scheduled for release in May 2017.

Frontman Chris “OJ” Ojeda issued the following statement: “For the last few albums, we have operated outside the fringes of the music community by necessity. I had almost lost hope that we would ever have the chance to showcase our music to the world on a bigger stage. With the help of Brian Slagel and Metal Blade Records, we feel like Byzantine has been given a second chance to make our first impression. We are absolutely thrilled at the opportunity to share our brand of heavy music with the world on the world’s best metal label!”

Byzantine’s line-up is as follows;

Chris “OJ” Ojeda (vocals and guitar)
Brian “Hendo” Henderson (guitar)
Sean Sydnor (bass)
Matt Bowles (drums)

Byzantine independently issued fifth studio record To Release Is To Resolve in April 2015.
