Finnish all-girl band INDICA has inked a deal with Germany's Nuclear Blast Records.
Commented the group in a statement: "It is very rare to see such enthusiasm that we have already witnessed with all the Nuclear Blast people about our forthcoming debut album in English. We can't wait to start to work with all of you, to get the album out and to start touring in Europe!"
Added Markus Staiger, Nuclear Blast President: "We are very proud to welcome this young band from Finland to the Nuclear Blast family. Those five exceptional girls have totally captivated all of us. With their magical and self-contained form of romantic and melancholic rock music we are trying to explore into directions which are new to us and and it will be a big but more than exciting challenge!"
INDICA's album was produced by NIGHTWISH mastermind Tuomas Holopainen, who has previously toured Europe with INDICA twice. He says, "INDICA has such sights to show you! You will be spellbound for lifetime!"
The new INDICA album, "A Way Away", is due in early summer 2010.
