The band had the following to say about the deal
“The label is the perfect home for us. Although they’re known for heavier acts they have an amazing wealth of experience and they’ve been incredibly supportive of the musical direction we wanted to take on this album. That support included a huge number of conversations between label and band as Final Coil sought to develop the ambitious musical and lyrical themes of “Persistence of Memory”. Thanks to [label manager] Carlo, we went into the studio fully prepared and confident that this was the best record we could possibly make. Carlo didn’t interfere at all, but he offered careful guidance and his help was invaluable to us. The collaboration between WormHoleDeath and Final Coil will allow the band to reach a global audience whilst benefiting from the support and experience of a label that prides itself on its independent spirit and the close relationship it forges with its artists. You hear so many horror stories about unscrupulous labels, but Carlo has taken exceptional care of us from the moment we first got in touch. We’re very pleased to have an opportunity to work with a label who are so friendly and respectful and we can’t wait to share our debut album with fans around the world.”
Belgian Rockers Triggerfinger have signed Mascot Records who already have bands such as Black Stone Cherry, Black Country Communion, Monster Truck, Big Jesus and Shaman’s Harvest on their roster.

Mascot Label Group’s CEO Ed van Zijl had the following to say:
“Triggerfinger are incredible, both in the studio and on stage. A band that deserves to be acknowledged by the international music scene. I am convinced that we can achieve that with Mascot. We are very happy to welcome Triggerfinger to our Mascot family.”
Ruben Block from Triggerfinger adds;
“Mascot has a strong international network and they’re not just focussing on album sales, they’re also working on possibilities to play live both inside and outside Europe. We are really excited about this new partnership.”
