Netherlands-headquartered indie label Roadrunner Records has signed CKY, the Pennsylvania rock band, to a global deal. New releases are expected next year.

The act, which released its debut album "Volume 1" in 1999 on U.S.-based Volcom Entertainment, later joined Island Def Jam in 2001.

At Island Def Jam, CKY recorded its breakthrough album "Infiltrate-Destroy-Rebuild," in 2002. According to the act's Web, site www.ckyalliance.com, this was its only album accompanied by a DVD video.

"An Answer Can Be Found," the second Island Def Jam album, came out in June 2005.

"CKY is a massively underrated band. They simply sound like no other band I have ever heard," said Monte Conner, Roadrunner's senior VP of A&R in United States, about the signing.

The move to Roadrunner comes after Matt Deis became the band's bassist in July 2005, plus an intensive international tour that ended in August and took in the United States, Australia and continental Europe.
