Orbit Culture Ink Deal with Century Media Records

Orbit Culture Ink Deal with Century Media Records

- By Ramon Gonzales

The Swedish powerhouse is set to begin their 2024 touring slate with a supporting slot on the 'Slaughter the Martour' North American tour with Machine Head and Fear Factory.

Coming off a breakout 2023 that saw the acclaimed release of Descent and its subsequent EP release, The Forgotten, Orbit Culture have positioned themselves as one of heavy music's most promising, emerging practitioners. 

Underscoring the band's continued upward trajectory, the Swedish quartet have confirmed they have signed a deal to become the latest addition to the Century Media Records roster. Speaking on the announcement, the band conveyed a sense of optimism with regards to the future of the partnership. 

"Century Media is home to some of today's biggest metal bands out there and we couldn't be any happier to be part of their roster. We look forward to bringing you new music in the future and working closely together with Century Media's world class team!”

Philipp Schulte, Century Media Vice President and Global Head also shared his vision for the future and relayed the limitless potential of the melodic metal craftsmen. “Watching ORBIT CULTURE's rise to becoming one of the greatest new metal bands in the world and now working with them is inspiring. I've personally been a fan since the beginning. They are part of both metal and Century Media's future in a very exciting way.” 

Mike Gitter, Century Media Vice President of A&R North America also spoke about the kind of aspirations he has for the band. “We are beyond excited to be working with ORBIT CULTURE and their team at 5B (Management). They’ve carved an indelible mark on the worldwide metal scene through vision, determination, and hard work. They’re not merely a band leading the charge for extreme music right now – they’re a band that will lead that charge for many years to come.”

Beginning what will no doubt be a formative year for the band, Orbit Culture kicks off their supporting North American run on the Slaughter the Mantour with Machine Head and Fear Factory. Following the U.S. tour, Orbit Culture will continue their impressive touring slate with an extensive stretch of European dates with the Descending Into Madness tour.
