.....and the third (!) new signing we announce this month is none other than the almighty SVALBARD. Having done a succession of singles, EPs and splits (both self-released and via Tangled Talk, amongst others) we couldn't be happier to be welcoming one of the best, most forwarding-thinking bands to Holy Roar. Combining elements of post-hardcore, crust and post-rock whilst making something wholly their own - this is a band that have played (and will play again) the awesome Temples Festival as well as shows with Funeral For A Friend. There aren't many bands that display that level of versatility without losing one iota of integrity or power.
A limited discography CD of all the bands own material to date will be up for preorder soon. This will only be available via holyroarrecords.com and via the band at shows. Svalbard are due to enter The Ranch with Lewis Johns to record their debut album for us in late February, with an early summer release planned. Get excited.
