The band comment: "We are beyond excited to be at the forefront of this collaboration between Nuclear Blast and Holy Roar Records. Working with Monte Conner and the team is a real privilege and we're blown away to be joining the likes of Behemoth, Meshuggah, and Pallbearer. We're looking forward to bringing our next record out as soon as possible and with two of the world's best labels behind us, we've never been in a better position."
The signing follows CONJURER's news of their return to North America, their second tour of the region in six months, and comes ahead of the band's debut Download Festival appearance (Friday 14th June).
CONJURER will be supporting Revocation and Voivod across the US and Canada alongside Psycroptic and Skeletal Remains throughout September and October. The tour also includes four dates with Municipal Waste, Napalm Death, Sick Of It All, and Take Offense, and one with Eluveitie and Ensiferum.
