The Exploited Nuclear Blast has announced the signing of British punk legends, The Exploited. The band - who formed in 1980 in East Kilbride, Scottland - are working on a new album for a late 2014 release.

Founder Wattie Buchan said this:

At last, after giving my word four years ago that we would sign to Nuclear Blast, it's now official. For us, it's a big deal to be signing to the biggest indie record company in Europe. One of the main reasons we signed to them is the fact that Markus [Staiger], the owner, is a big Exploited fan and I know he will give us 100% backing to make the next album as great as the last ones.

The label will begin reissuing several of the band's older albums in March 2014 with bonus material and formats including CD digipaks and gatefold vinyl.
