11/May/2018 HALCYON WAY SIGN WITH AGONIA RECORDS

HALCYON WAY, an American metal band from Atlanta, GA, has signed a worldwide record deal with Agonia Records. Fresh off a month-long European tour with Angra & Geoff Tate’s Operation: Mindcrime, the band is expected to release a new studio album - successor to Billboard-charting "Conquer" from 2014 - in August.

HALCYON WAY is the ultimate example of blue-collar work ethic, self-reliant bootstrapping, and hard work & perseverance in spite of nearly insurmountable odds. This award winning band has released four studio albums worldwide through Nightmare Records/Sony RED, and most recently via Massacre Records, and has performed on 4 continents (and about 20 countries and counting), extensively touring with the likes of Saxon, Sabaton, Queensryche, Fates Warning, Fozzy, Skid Row, U.D.O. and Delain

HALCYON WAY's sound cannot be neatly slotted into any sub-category of metal. It can be described as heavy, catchy, technical, progressive and above all, focused on strong songcraft. The band draws influences & inspiration from many metal bands, from Megadeth to Dream Theater, to Testament and Chimaira. With a magnitude of catchy hooks, vocal harmonies a la King’s X or Stryper, and heavy, technical, yet ultimately accessible instrumentation, HALCYON WAY is ready to begin a new chapter with their forthcoming studio album.

"We’re really stoked to be announcing our partnership with Agonia Records" - comments the band. "Their commitment to working our new record alongside us is strong and we can’t wait to open this new chapter in our career. We just got back from a fantastic tour with our friends in Angra and Operation:Mindcrime, and we had the opportunity to test out some of the new songs. The crowds went ape over them so we can't wait to get the new record in everyone's hands so we can get out there and support it some more!".

HALCYON WAY's last album, "Conquer" (2014), hit the Billboard Heatseekers Chart at #41 for week of release sales. It was named "Record Of The Week" on the Revolver Magazine website, and the lead single "Web Of Lies" spent more than 6 weeks on the USA CMJ metal radio charts. More news on the follow-up to "Conquer" will be announced soon.

Line-up:
Steve Braun - vocals
Jon Bodan - lead guitars, backing vocals, programming
Max Eve - rhythm guitars
Skyler Moore - bass, backing vocals
Aaron Baumoel - drums
