A fall release is expected.
Commented IRON REAGAN vocalist Tony Foresta: "I've always wanted to work with Relapse for years. Their reputaion of releasing so much great underground music speaks for itself.
"We are all extremely excited about signing with Relapse and putting out this rager of an upcoming record. Having Kurt Ballou on board mixing is just the icing on he cake.
"We are about 75% done tracking the record here with Phil in Richmond, and between this and the rad tours we have coming up, it's looking to be a very exciting year.
"I couldn't think of a better label to put this record out on and am really looking forward to a long future with Relapse."
IRON REAGAN will hit the road this Sunday on a seven-week run that will take them to SXSW and back and includes dates with OCCULTIST and GHOUL.
In its short time as a band, IRON REAGAN has already released a demo EP and a full-length via A389 Recordings, and a split with EXHUMED via Tankcrimes.
