KOCH Records has announced the signing of critically-acclaimed heavy trio HIGH ON FIRE to its roster. The band just completed a run of West Coast dates and now will focus on writing the new CD that will be released in Summer 2009.

their debut, “The Art of Self Defense,” on the now defunct Man’s Ruin label. Their latest album, “Death Is This Communion,” was released in 2007 and was produced by famed producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Mudhoney).

Scott Givens, VP of Metal, says, “HIGH ON FIRE is one of the most important bands in the metal genre and we are extremely excited to be working with them.”
