Tooth and Nail have announced that they have signed XXI (formerly A Feast For Kings). Of the signing, Butcher said on behalf of the band, “we are humbled and honored to be part of the Tooth & Nail roster. We have been talking to the label for quite a while and they have continued to support us through our tragedy and grief. The fact that they are a highly respected label that we grew up listening to also adds to our excitement.”

A Feast For Kings initially formed in 2010 and grew from a hobby into a formidable band. Their independently released 2014 EP (Hell On Earth) even reached #5 on the iTunes metal chart.

Alternative Press has premiered a new video this morning. The video/song “”Memories”” is an open tribute to their fallen vocalist, Eric Gentry. This Sunday marked the one year anniversary of his death.

Speaking on the song, Seth Weigand (guitar/clean vocals) said, ““As hard as it is to capture the loss we feel, the song is really about outliving someone who was such a big part of your life. It’s about remembering them and carrying on their dreams for them.””

The video captures the messages as well, following two friends from childhood until their twilight years. Weigand adds “what makes it a proper tribute to Eric for us is that his Dad and older brother appear in the video.”
