Down I Go announce 4th album 'You're Lucky God, That I Cannot Reach You' for Oct 23rd release

Posted on August 3rd, 2015

Holy Roar Records is very excited to announce the impending arrival of Down I Go's fourth album 'You're Lucky God, That I Cannot Reach You' to be released August 28th (digital) & October 23rd (limited white vinyl).

Whilst possibly one of the most unlikely albums to ever materialise, with members living in Stockholm, Chicago and Toronto - due to the wonders of Kickstarter and Icelandic studio-owning fans -  it has happened. As Alan DIG put it "Why can't anyone let this fucking band split up?" Also, don't worry - Kickstarter was used to fund the bands flights to Iceland and not for awful reasons.

Preorders for the vinyl (and a shirt of course), along with a full stream of the album will debut very shortly.....


1.  Mother In The Pen (featuring Tim Elsenburg of Sweet Billy Pilgrim)

2.  The Serpent of Lagarfljót

3.  The Hired Hand & The Lake Dwellers

4.  The Slaying of Skeggi (featuring Jamie Lenman)

5.  Of Marbendill

6.  Strike It While It’s Still On My Nose

7.  My Old Lady Wants Something For Her Whorl

8.  An Outlaw Killed

9.  Drangey Consecrated

10.  The Sending

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.
