New York City metal band Ikillya is proud to officially announce their partnership with Megaforce Records and will be releasing their sophomore record ‘Vae Victis’ on April 29th. ‘Vae Victis’ is Latin for “woe to the vanquished ones” and is the follow-up record to Ikillya’s highly praised debut album ‘Recon’ which the band is offering for free download in its entirety as well today.

Vocalist Jason Lekberg says of the signing to Megaforce Records: “I’m very excited to be partnering with MRI for the distribution of our new album. Thus far in our career we have been nearly completely DIY and this partnership will help get our music to more listeners around the world while being able to retain our creative control and master recordings. It’s an additional bonus to me that their parent company Megaforce is one of the most important labels of my early years.”
