Von Hertzen Brothers Sign To Mascot Records


Von Hertzen Brothers have announced they have signed with Mascot Records, also home to Danish proggers VOLA, Flying Colors, Black Stone Cherry and Black Country Communion.

Singer Mikko Von Hertzen told Prog: “We have been looking for the right company to partner with who can take us to the next level internationally and we all believe that with Mascot Records we can really build on what we have achieved to date. We could not be more excited about the future and are proud to be working with Mascot.”

An equally effusive Mascot Label CEO, Ed van Zijl said: ““We are delighted to have Von Hertzen Brothers join the Mascot Label Group. They have all the elements of a great Rock band, the ability to be complex, exciting, innovative and are an incredible live act. We’re very excited with what the future holds.”

The band will release their new album, V11 - War Is Over on the label this autumn, ahead of a run of UK tour dates this November which includes an appearance at HRH Prog 6.
