Polish black metal outfit Batushka have signed with Napalm Records, and we can only hope this means new music is on the horizon! The group has also announced they will embark on a 2023 winter European tour with Hate.


The band comments on the signing: 

“PILGRIMS! We’re happy to announce that we’ve signed up with Napalm Records for the release of our upcoming new album. We have a mutual understanding regarding the telling of this new story and spreading the gospel of BATUSHKA around the globe. Be on the lookout for our new album, and get ready to experience BATUSHKA in all the corners of the world! After traveling through North America and Mexico for our first long pilgrimage over there, we dare to say that this tour reaches far beyond our wildest expectations! We were surprised and humbled by the reception! We already know that we will return to stages around the globe as soon as possible – not only with a new show, but also with new songs and a new story. Apart from that, with blessing – BATUSHKA”


Napalm Records A&R manager Sebastian Münch adds:

“BATUSHKA are undoubtedly one of the most creative and innovative black metal bands in recent years. We had the pleasure of welcoming BATUSHKA live at this year’s edition of the Metal On The Hill Festival in Graz, Austria, and were immediately impressed by the band as a brilliant live act and great entertainers. I am super excited to be a part of the release of the new studio album next year. Welcome to the Napalm family.”
