New Jersey/New York band ILL NINO has inked a deal with Victory Records. The band will enter the studio in April to begin its new album for a late summer release.
Commented singer Cristian Machado: "I'm honored to be a part of the Victory Records family. They are a great label with a historic roster and we couldn't be happier. Having them on our side is amazing."
ILL NINO last year split with Cement Shoes Records, which released 2008's "Enigma". According to drummer Dave Chavarri, the CD sold 80,000 copies worldwide "with no backup in America."
ILL NINO is scheduled to spend the next couple of months in pre-production in New Jersey. "We will be there until the end of April," Chavarri told Noisecreep. "We will jam, add some tunes. We're starting with 20 songs and will write 20 more and then take the best 15 so we have variety."
ILL NINO parted ways with Roadrunner Records in 2006 — less than a year after the release of ILL NINO's third album, "One Nation Underground".
