Hypnos Sign to The Sign Records; New Releases Coming in 2018

Swedish classic style heavy rockers Hypnos have signed on to release two new offerings through The Sign Records next year. The first of them is a live-in-studio session that will be out in Spring as the follow-up to their 2016 Crusher Records long-player, Cold Winds (review here), and the second is a proper next full-length, which will be issued in the Fall and will mark their third album overall and first to feature frontman Linus Johansson.

No word on whether the live-in-studio release might contain any preview of what the next album holds, but we’ve got plenty of time before we get there either way, so figure details will probably surface after the New Year. The PR wire brings the following style-statement photo and preliminary announcement of the signing and the impending releases:

Hypnos signs with The Sign Records. The Gothenburg act is no stranger to those who are familiar to the contemporary Swedish rock scene. Hypnos can best be described as Heavy Rock where they cheery picked the best out of the 70´s hard rock and 80´s heavy metal scenes. The bands Swedish roots can´t be misstaken as they add heavy melodies and rock n roll energy. Hypnos have up until now been a part of Crusher Records and have done several tours in Europe and previously released two albums.

The Sign Records head of operation Kaj comments on the new signing: “We feel very excited to begin working with Hypnos. It´s without a doubt a extraordinary live band that have impact on audiences all over Europe! The band ain´t afraid of challenges and have developed with every line up change and album to the better. This is one of the true rock n roll band that still wanna make the world better with music.”

Hypnos entered the studio last weekend to record an eight track live session that will be released on vinyl and CD. It will be released during the spring of 2018. The band just completed a line-up change and this release will be the first with new singer Linus Johansson. Hypnos will tour Europe during the spring of 2018 and their next gig is on the 5th of January when the band is headlining a show at Pustervik, Gothenburg where the lineup also consist of their new label mates Märvel and Night. After the tour Hypnos will return to the studio to record a new studio album that will be released during the autumn of 2018.

The Sign records is a Swedish label working with bands as Honeymoon Disease, Lizzies, Tid, MaidaVale, Grande Royale, Night, Märvel, Svartanatt, Demon Head, Hällas among others. The label is a part of the Almost Religious label group that also holds the labels Lövely Records and Gaphals.
