We Never Learned To Live 'crystalline, so serene' video premiering now

Posted on July 6th, 2015


The new video from We Never Learned To Live for 'crystalline, so serene' is out now! Comprised of recent European tour footage, made all the more aesthetically pleasing by Seán Mahons usual high-level artistic work, this track really displays the more expansive, yet none the less explosive, side to the band. Enjoy.

The album 'Silently, I Threw Them Skyward' is available on LP/CD/DD now from all good outlets, or right here....





Svalbard announce the release of debut album 'One Day All This Will End' for Sept 25th....

Posted on June 26th, 2015

We are very proud and honoured to announce the forthcoming release of 'One Day All This Will End', the debut album by Bristolians Svalbard. We have followed the progress of Svalbard since catching them live on an early tour with Direwolves and watched them slowly, but surely, become one of the best bands around. It's especially wonderful (and rare) when a great band back up their musical output by being great human beings, which is the most certainly the case here. 

Svalbard effortlessly combine elements of post-hardcore/crust/post-rock/black metal, bending and blending it into something entirely their own - incredible songs without ever compromising an astonishing scope of sound. This is a band growing ever more maximalist with their approach to melody and intensity in the relatively short period of time they have been together thus far. From the almost gruff-punk-goes-black metal-goes post-rock leanings of ‘Unnatural Light’, to the tale of two halves presented by ‘The Vanishing Point’ which swings from a haunting gaze to an almost positive post-hardcore resolution, Svalbard weave disparate influence into a seamless whole with aplomb.
