Philadelphia heavy metal band Sonja has signed with Century Media Records, and is celebrating the occasion with a new single “Discretion for the Generous.”

“It’s a potent experience to write, record, film a video at my home, and immediately release a song that is literally encompassing my life right now,” said Sonja vocalist and guitarist Melissa Moore.

Sonja is our Goddess and she despises compromise. We exist for her extreme desire and as such we are full-on at all times. To create the art worthy of her name we rip through our realities into the new planes of existence she demands. We are grateful for those who join us on this path of serving her.

“Escaping to Portugal to write the lyrics, I attempted to articulate some of the insanity back in Philly. When I returned home, we turned the volume UP.

“Century Media became our new sugar daddy. We stare into each other’s souls with an unhinged need to push each other over the edge. It’s pointless to even try to predict what kind of fucked up situations we are all going to end up in. Some knowledge can only be found in the dark.”

Mike Gitter, VP of A&R at Century Media Records adds on welcoming Sonja: “When we first heard Sonja‘s Loud Arriver, it was as full of heaviness, angst, sexuality and heart as a rock record could be. Like the band itself, it both challenged and waved a bloody sword for the classic and the contemporary.

“‘Discretion For the Generous,’ in true Sonja fashion, occupies the space where Manowar, Danzig and Mercyful Fate conjure and conquer at the best late night party you can imagine. Century Media is proud to be Sonja‘s new label home.”
