Quebec City, Canada based power metallers, SuddenFlames have inked a worldwide deal with Maple Metal Records to release their second studio album ‘Under the Sign of the Alliance’.

The worldwide release date for this new album is set for 06.06.14. ‘Under the Sign of the Alliance’ was produced by Patrice Dalpé and SuddenFlames at SF Studio in Quebec City, and was mastered by Pierre Rémillard (Anvil, Kataklysm, Voivod) at Wild Studio, north of Montreal.

SuddenFlames were established in 2001 by front-man Jean-Robert Letarte and bassist Pascal Lacombe, and they quickly recruited two guitarists and a drummer.  Finally in 2011 after a few member changes, SuddenFlames settled on the line-up that recorded their debut album ‘Death Might be Late’, which was remastered and released in 2013.  The line-up listed below is the same one that is responsible for both albums including ‘Under the Sign of the Alliance’.

Sébastien Latulippe - Guitars (2004-present)
Daves Couture - Guitars (2011-present)
Pascal Lacombe - Bass (2001-2008 and 2010-present)
Nicolas Blanchet - Drums (2011-present)

In recent years, SuddenFlames have shared the stage with such acts as Dragonforce, Stratovarius, Kamelot, & Raven, and supported Paul Di'Anno (ex-Iron Maiden)on a 7 City Canadian Tour in 2007.

SuddenFlames are supporting PRIMAL FEAR in Quebec City on May 1st and will perform at the Quebec City event En Route to Heavy Montreal 2014 on April 11th.
