Suicide Silence have just announced that they have inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment, the new division of Nuclear Blast formed by Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger and former Roadrunner A&R chief, Monte Conner.

"I am thrilled to have such an innovative and unique band like Suicide Silence as the first signing to Nuclear Blast Entertainment," said NBE President Monte Conner. "Even though I was totally blown away by their last album, The Black Crown, I am certain the band's best music is still ahead of them."

Guitarist Mark Heylmun commented:

"I and all of Suicide Silence are proud to announce that we have signed a worldwide deal with the one and only Nuclear Blast. It wasn't a tough decision, Nuclear Blast has been a huge part of heavy metal for decades and we couldn't be happier. This is a new beginning for us and we're ready as all hell! Let Chapter 2 begin now!"

Suicide Silence's Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut is tentatively scheduled for a Summer 2013 release. The group's latest album, The Black Crown, sold upwards of 14,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 28 on The Billboard 200 chart.
