Former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison’s new band Vimic have announced that they have signed a new record deal with T-Boy Records, the joint venture between Universal Music Enterprises and artist manager Andy Gould.

The band will release their debut album, ‘Open Your Omen’, early next year. Produced by Jordison and Kato Khandwala, the album was mixed and mastered by Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, who also features on new single ‘Fail Me (My Temple)’.

“This album wails”, says Mustaine. “Joey Jordison and Vimic are incredible. High octane drumming and heavy, melodic songs make this band something you definitely need to check out! I dig them so much I laid a solo down on one of their songs, ‘Fail Me (My Temple)’. From there, we decided to take them on tour with us down to South America where Megadeth is massive”.

Jordison adds: “The riffs, lyrics, and drums of ‘Open Your Omen’ will tell you a lot. We started this record when I was coming out of the acute transverse myelitis condition. It’s literally what saved me and helped me get back to where I’m healthier than ever. These guys and this album pushed me to not only relearn how to walk, but how to play the drums again. ‘Open Your Omen’ is the rebirth of the rest of my life”.

As well as touring South America with Megadeth, the band are due to play the 100 Club in London on 15 Nov. ‘Fail Me (My Temple)’ is out now.
