Canadian metalcore outfit Obey The Brave have signed to Epitaph, the label announced today.

The band will release their album Young Blood Friday 31 August.

Lead vocalist Alex Erian, formerly of Despised Icon, said, "I remember listening to my Pennywise and Rancid cassettes back in high school and daydreaming endlessly about being in a band and touring the world. If someone would have told me back then that I'd sign one day with the label that started it all, I would have never believed it.

"It feels unreal but my boys in OTB and I are definitely up to the challenge. We're extremely honored to now be part of the Epitaph family and are looking forward to many years of pure fucking destruction together!"
