Bastions to release new EP 'Bedfellows pt 2: The Forgotten Daughter' January 27th 2014 (12" vinyl/download)

Lead track ‘Foreign Bodies’ premieres on BBC Radio 1 Rock Show Monday 25th November along with preorders.

Even a casual fan should credit Bastions for the path they have taken over the last 18 months or so. Releasing two thematically linked eps (that can be housed together in the packaging accompanying this release) – this is band allowing themselves expression both musically and artistically without limitation. 

A bold claim perhaps – but one based upon logical, modern thought. Freed from the pressure of delivering an album, Bastions have dredged everything from slo-mo scando-core to almost Cursed-esque piques of auditory violence. The concept has also allowed the band to live and breathe a story and concept in a way that a single snapshot of time (aka ‘an album’) would not allow. Clever, without being smug. 

Completing the Bedfellows concept has now left Bastions at a tantalizing, fascinating crossroads, whilst having spent the last year delivering drips of exciting, visceral, diverse post-hardcore. There is no easy way to sum up Bastions, other than to simply call them one of the most consistently exciting heavy bands we have. 

Tracklisting: 
1. Empty Vessel
2. Foreign Bodies
3. Mother’s Ruin
4. The Water Tower
5. Murmuring

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

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.
