Wren - 'Thrall' OUT NOW 31 August 2018

Happy release day to Holy Roar's very own Post Metal visionaries Wren, with their new epic EP 'Thrall'.
Decibel Magazine had this to say of the track:

'Just shy of 20 minutes (19:56 is the final count on Soundcloud), Thrall sees Wren embrace heavy, crushing post-metal that thrives in its ability to shift from loud and heavy to quiet and pensive while still retaining a strong sense of atmosphere. Buried vocals call out through thick walls of guitars and echoing percussion before quieting and readying themselves to swell in volume again.'

Digital Download available here

Holy Roar and Good Chemistry Brewing present: ROAR POWER! 26 July 2018

We are very excited to release our second collaboration with Good Chemistry Brewing - ROAR POWER!

Following the success of ROAR POWER in keg (launched across the country with a five night bands-and-beer tour), we decided this beach ball of a beer should be available in small pack - and cans are of course festival/beach/picnic/park-appropriate!

This 5% summer smasher is built on a rich and sweet malt base with plenty of wheat and oats. We added 140kgs of sweet cherry and peach puree to give the beer an extra fruity dimension and a light pink colour. We then dry-hopped with Hallertau Blanc, Citra and Mosaic to bring out extra fruity flavours.

Available in 440ml cans, packs of 4 and whole cases - pre-order...
