BY Gregory AdamsPublished Mar 6, 2014

Following a recent split release with Exhumed, thrash supergroup Iron Reagan have confirmed that an album of their own is next on their agenda.

Though details are still shaping up behind their next set, it will be the band's first for new label home Relapse Records, which will release the album in the fall. Vocalist Tony Foresta noted in a statement that the act are "75 percent done tracking the record," with guitarist Phil Hall handling recording duties at Blaze of Torment in their native Richmond, VA. Once the sessions have wrapped, they'll be sending the record to Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou to mix at his GodCity studio in Massachusetts.

Formed in 2012, Iron Reagan feature Municipal Waste members Foresta and Hall, as well as members of Darkest Hour, Cannabis Corpse, Mammoth Grinder, Suppression and more. They issued a demo tape in 2012, delivered their full-length debut Worse Than Dead last year for A389 and dropped the Exhumed split in January through Tankcrimes.

"I've always wanted to work with Relapse for years," Foresta explained of this next step in the band's evolution. "Their reputation of releasing so much great underground music speaks for itself. We are all extremely excited about signing with Relapse and putting out this rager of an upcoming record."

Iron Reagan have a number of upcoming U.S. dates lined up in April and May. You can check out their show schedule over here.
