Hang The Bastard - 'Hellfire Reign' preorder now on!



Finally the debut album from Hang The Bastard is here! '1888' from the record is up for listening here now!

With guest appearances by Nick of Dead Swans (vocals on 'Levitation Lessons') and James of Rolo Tomassi (all keyboards), ‘Hellfire Reign’ is 10 tracks that shows the band writing a collection of songs that work and flow together, pushing their hardcore/metal sound out into doom, black metal and horror film soundtrack territory – an achievement clearly more than the sum of its parts. All hail the ‘…Reign’!

Cd, Vinyl LP on two colour variations, shirts and hoodies all available as part of the preorder in the Holy Roar shop NOW!

Rolo Tomassi 'Hysterics' vinyl repress on Destination Moon Records!


In the words of James from Rolo Tomassi -

"Following the recent two year anniversary of our debut album Hysterics, we have decided to repress it on vinyl.

With the original vinyl pressing selling out in only a month and interest in this record still ongoing we thought it made sense to make this album readily available again on vinyl in two colour varations.

This will also act as the first release on our own label, Destination Moon, which we're all very excited about. Pre-orders will be taken only via the Holy Roar site [starting now].

The official release date for this is November 15th.

Thanks,
James
Rolo Tomassi/Destination Moon"

PRESSING INFO -

- 400 on blue vinyl with yellow/grey splatter
- 100 on solid red with flecks of translucent vinyl
- Artwork is different to the original vinyl pressing.
- Comes on heavyweight 350gsm card, 5mm spine, printed inner bag, shrinkwrapped.

Run Walk highly limited Instrumental Ep available now



The new Instrumental EP from Run Walk is now available in the store. Limited to just 50 copies (of which we have just over 40 for sale), this is 4 tracks clocking in at just over 21 minutes. We have tried to keep this as cheap as possible considering every one of the 12 different inserts, the cover art, the printing, the packaging and the cds themselves were all made or designed by different people! Not to forget it is such a limited run. Further photos can be found of all aspects of the packaging here

Musically the band seem to be exploring both the avenues hinted at by the title track of their 'IHTAWSICSSOEAOMITS' mini-album, as well as darker, more droning territory.

No preorders, no bundles - just 4 great new tracks available straight away! The whole ep can be streamed on our website right now.

This is the first time much of this material is available digitally as well. The vinyl is available on 3 colour schemes - white, white/translucent blue or translucent blue. The white vinyl is the most limited at 100 copies and is only available from Holy Roar.

As is par for the course with us now - there is also a preorder shirt, available in either blue or white, which is made to order and only available as part of this preorder. But we've stepped it up one further - the first 50 orders of the lp come with a free live tape that is only available with this LP and limited to 50 copies made.

New band on Holy Roar - BLACK MASS



We're gonna be about as blunt on this as we've ever been. We know very little about Black Mass. Via some messageboard or other we heard a demo of Black Mass recorded in a basement. It sounded like shit but showed incredible promise. We pretty much told them this. They came back to us a few months later with a bunch of recordings done by Jason Sanderson (Rolo Tomassi, Antares, We'll Die Smiling etc). These recordings are amazing.

It appears the band are doing a split 7" on about 32964 labels with Guillotines and Kasa. They will also, most importantly of course, be doing an EP on Holy Roar. 4 tracks of Entombed-meets-The Power and the Glory. Think Trap Them, Cursed, Napalm Death - all things crusty, filthy, grindy. This EP should be out within a couple of months! More news, a new song etc coming very soon!

New Throats shirt and Guilty Parents ep in on distro!



First up - we made a new Throats shirt to celebrate their tour (with Lavotchkin in tow) which starts tomorrow! Check the gigs section for all dates. Printed on Gildan Ringspun Soft Style (a high quality soft shirt) - this looks awesome - with black photoprint and silver border and font! Only 50 made, and Throatsofgold members get this as part of their package.



Secondly - we have got our hands on some copies of the Guilty Parents ep. Released by Danger Lazer Phaser Razor Records. Looks amazing. Sloppy rock'n'punk. Available now in the shop!

Tuesday, 15 June 2010

Young Legionnaire - Colossus/Iron Dream 7" Preorder



The debut release from Young Legionnaire. This band is made up of Gordon Moakes (Bloc Party), Paul Mullen (The Automatic/ex-Yourcodenameis:milo) and William Bowerman (Brontide, La Roux, ex-Iwasacubscout). You could almost say this is our first ever 'supergroup' release of sorts. Except that this sounds nothing like any of the members previous work - this is detuned, subtly technical stoner indie. It's fucking heavy and loud but catchy and tuneful.

Available for preorder now. Instant mp3 download when ordering (follow onscreen instructions). 100 copies on black vinyl, 200 on creamy yellow and 200 on semi-transparent brown. Get on it. We don't expect this one to be around forever!

Friday, 11 June 2010

Wednesday, 2 June 2010

Lonwolves - 'A True Discourse' Preorder up!



Now up for preorder! 4 song cdep.

Lonewolves display a fluidity that nods to the tones of Earth, Pelican, Old Man Gloom and Year of No Light whilst grasping the full throttle rock of Coliseum and The Hope Conspiracy. An epic, energetic beast.

1. Hollow (exclusive to cd version) // 2. Shadows and Dust // 3. Death March // 4. Deity

Displaying a new-found confidence and (whisper it) maturity from the band, this record loses none of the bands energy or intensity, whilst exploring far more subtle tones, restraint and vivid colours.

CD comes in white card DVD packaging (photos soon!). 5 different colour vinyl-effect cds. Multiple orders will receive multiple colours, up to all 5 colours. 20 copies on each colour. Limited to 100 copies.

ROLO TOMASSI - COSMOLOGY



We are stupidly happy to announce that we are co-releasing the vinyl of the new album by Rolo Tomassi - 'Cosmology'. Limited to 100 copies from us in a gatefold sleeve, this features different artwork to the cd version, and comes on translucent blue vinyl with solid grey and white speckles.

Produced by Diplo, we genuinely believe this is the bands best material yet. It harks back to pre-ep material whilst also displaying a ridiculous amount of progression and heightened technicality. Starting off as an OTT-tech monster and ending on psychadelic space-rock trips. this is an epic journey of a record.

All pressing information can be found on the releases page or in the store.

Get on this. It wont around for long!

Jackals - 6 song 7" coming soon!



We are mega happy to announce that we will be helping release the debut 6 song 7" from Jackals within the next month or two! Hailing from the Norwich area, this 6-piece is a veritable smorgsabord of DIY talent! Jack runs the What Would Henry Rollins Do? zine and label, Alex Batten used to play in Maths and takes sweet photos and the whole thing was recorded by our very own Alfie from Maths. Sorry to the other members of the band for not knowing anything about you yet!

Seemingly coming from out of nowhere, this is rock'n'roll infused power violence with Kodan Armada/Neil Perry tendancies on their more expansive moments.

This is a co-release with Wineblood Music/WWHRD?/Power Negi. All good people! 300 copies will be made in total on coloured vinyl in handscreened packaging.

There is a free mp3 up now on the shop and release page for this. Download it and check it out and then preorder this beauty!

New release available now! ANTARES!




Please welcome ANTARES. Easily the most technical UK heavy band I have heard for a long time!

4 songs, 16 minutes, mini-dvd style cases, 3" cd. Produced by the awesome Jason Sanderson.

You can buy their 3" cdep here now! There are only 100 copies ever, so this wont be around forever! You can also buy it digitally which will be around forever!

Hi 2010!

I guess its a bit of a belated Happy New Year from Holy Roar, as I went to Paris this week and got stuck there an additional 24 hours due to Eurostar cancellations. It wasnt all bad though, I got a free (really nice) hotel for the night and first class back the following morning! Below is a photo of the Catacombs i visited in Paris. Total brutality. All human bones. The most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. They go on for miles of tunnel.



So a bit of a round up/whats happening etc....

- Any orders placed (excluding Throats preorders) between dec 18th and now will go out on Monday 9th Jan.
- The Throats preorder is still running! Have you picked it up? Its not going to be around for long now!
- We are working on a bunch of merch for some of our bands, some cds/vinyl/shirts/bags from friends labels to sell via Holy Roar, a secret imminent release, the Guilty Parents cd, the Run, Walk! cd preorder, and loads more upcoming releases and stuffs!
