Finland’s Blind Channel, who will be playing their song ‘Dark Side’ at the Eurovision Song Contest semi-final in Rotterdam tomorrow, have signed to Century Media Records.
‘Dark Side’, which has been streamed millions of times and reached platinum status in their home country, has come on the back of European tours alongside Hollywood Undead, Enter Shikari, Simple Plan and Amaranthe, and saw the band receive a Finnish Grammy nomination in 2019.
The band told MetalTalk: “We’re extremely excited and grateful to join the Century Media/ Sony Music family. To join forces with one of the world’s biggest rock/ metal labels is a great honour to us. We’ve been working hard for almost eight years, and now it’s time for yet another level up.
“We can’t wait to start working with these awesome people to show everyone what Blind Channel and violent pop is all about. This week we’ll start with Europe. Next: the whole planet.”
Philipp Schulte, Century Media Director, told us “No doubt, Blind Channel are the most promising Finnish rock/Metal act right now. More than ever, world class bands need to deliver a package of superior songs and live performances, outstanding visuals, constant activity on all fronts as well as highest commitment. We see all this in Blind Channel.
“That’s why we are committed to doing the best job possible for this great band. Welcome Blind Channel to Century Media Records and Sony Music. Let’s do this!”
