He Is Legend and the label have both announced the news that the band has been signed to Spinefarm Records. “We’re very excited to start a new relationship with people who truly understand this band as a whole,” frontman Schuylar Croom said. “It was really important for us to find the proper home for this record after seeing the tremendous response from our fans during the crowdfunding campaign. We truly believe Spinefarm Records is the best possible partner to help us keep that momentum trending in the right direction. In our eyes, this is the most important He Is Legend record to date and we’re happy that our friends at Spinefarm are going to help us get this album out to the masses.”
