Maths / Throats split LP preorder on vinyl for the first time!

Easily one of the cornerstones of the Holy Roar back catalogue, this is the release that launched both Maths and Throats into the public consciousness. Available for preorder now on vinyl for the first time. 

"Maths write epic, furious Orchid-esque walls of melody and noise with a tunefulness many of their contemporaries lack. Backed up by an unpredictable and incendiary live show they have quickly garnered support slots and tours with bands such as This Town Needs Guns, Fuck Buttons, Cutting Pink With Knives, Mutiny on the Bounty, Rolo Tomassi, Youthmovies, This Aint Vegas, Tortuga and many more. After two demos recorded by the band themselves (which have now completely sold out) MATHS present five brand new songs, faster, louder, more complex and honest than ever before. 

Throats began life in April 2007 with the aim to play as fast and as heavily as they could. With influences ranging from Some Girls to Black Sabbath and My Bloody Valentine to Burning Witch, Throats are bred to play punk fucking rock laced with metal influences whilst still unfazed by genre confines. " 

THIS IS A PREORDER. ESTIMATED RELEASE DATE OF DECEMBER 16TH. 

WAV/320kbps MP3s AVAILABLE SHORTLY! 

Pressing info - 300 LPs pressed. 100 x pink vinyl 100 x black vinyl 100 x pink w/ black splatter

MINE announce 'Disappear' EP

Stream lead track 'Penknife' now, exclusively via Rock Sound

MINE have announced their sophomore EP entitled 'Disappear' due for release September 30th on Limited 'graffiti' 12" EP/regular 12" EP/DL via Holy Roar and on tape via Cult Culture

Preorders for the 12" vinyl EPan exclusive Royal Tenenbaums shirt, and various package deals(some of which let you grab the bands self-titled first 12" EP for £3!) are up now! 

MINE have quickly built a name for themselves as a leading proponent of progressive, swirling indie/punk/hardcore. Firmly shaking off any remaining cobwebs of their respective pasts, the members of MINE have now truly coalesced and produced another EP of heartfelt, emotional modern rock that defies true classification.
