Relapse Records signs True Widow

True Widow (who's last album made our Top 20 Albums of 2011 post) has just signed to underground metal label Relapse Records.  Here's the press release from the label's website:

"True Widow, the "reverb-drenched shoegaze" (Brooklyn Vegan) Dallas Trio, have signed with Relapse Records with an eye towards a late Spring release. The band is currently recording at the Echo Lab in Argyle, Tex, reuniting with As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center To The Circumference Of The Earth producer Matt Pence (Yuck, Jay Farrar). "Returning to the Echo Lab just made sense," explained drummer Slim TX "It's where the previous albums have been recorded and it feels like home. The same goes for working with Matt. He allowed us to stay true to ourselves on our self-titled album and develop the sounds that would become our cornerstone for everything that has followed."

The band will take a brief break from recording as they head out on a handful of dates this month: 

January 9 Baton Rouge, LA Spanish Moon 
January 10 Atlanta, GA The Basement 
January 11 Birmingham, AL The Bottletree 
January 12 New Orleans, LA Triple Six Klubhaus 
January 26 Denton, TX Rubber Gloves
True Widow is DH Phillips (guitar/vocals), Nicole Estill (bass/vocals) and Slim TX (drums).
