Founding member & guitarist Lee Altus comments on the new alliance:

"I'm really happy and couldn't think of a better label for HEATHEN.  I've known people at Nuclear Blast, some of whom have been fans of the band going as far back as the early demo days, and have been friends with them for many years.  It's amazing for me to think that throughout this band's career, every album we recorded has been released  on a different label.  I can finally say that we have found home.  Nuclear Blast has become a mecca for Bay Area thrash bands and we are happy to join our friends and partners in crime Exodus, Death Angel, Testament and Forbidden.  Now it's time to get to work on the new album!"
