Leeds' noise-rock quartet Blacklisters have signed to Smalltown America and will be releasing their second album later this year.

The album - titled 'Adult' - was recorded in Suburban Home Studios in Leeds with producer Matt Johnson, aka MJ of Hookworms.

The label said: "We are delighted and humbled to announce that Blacklisters are joining the Smalltown America family. Over the past few years, the Leeds quartet have deservedly earned their reputation as one of the UK's most confrontational and aggressive live acts. We are thrilled to welcome them to the label."

Blacklisters, who released their debut album in 2012, said: "We are extremely happy to announce that we will be joining Small Town America to release our second album. Song tours, videos and stuff will come soon."
