Please give a warm welcome to our new sister label Truthseeker Music .
Headed up by Alex Leat, who has worked for Holy Roar for the past two years, and it is clear that he possesses everything needed to front up an open-ended endeavour that ably reflects his taste and talents, rather than Holy Roar simply be involved in the release of the forthcoming debut album from Human Future. Holy Roar has forged its own distinct path over the course of 8 years and the idea of helping sow the seeds of a new label, unencumbered by expectation or boundary, was too good to pass up. It's time to break new ground once more.
They will be kicking off with a release of the debut album by Human Future out April 27th.
'Spectrum' was recorded in the summer of 2014 at The Ranch Production House with Lewis Johns, and was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege.
You can pre-order 'Spectrum' now from our store
Stream 'Forge' & 'All Must Wither' here

Taking in tracks from the split LP with Pariso, the Flightless Birds 7", the Gone Tomorrow 10" and the debut self-titled 7" - this acts as an incredible 12-track overview of Svalbard's progression thus far....this will only ever be available via holyroarrecords.com and the via the band at shows.
Housed in a gatefold card wallet and comes with instant high quality download upon purchase. Should ship mid-February 2015.

.....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.
