Kvelertak Signs With Roadrunner Records


Roadrunner Records has announced the signing of Norwegian adrenaline-pushers of heavy rock and roll, Kvelertak. The band will release their highly anticipated sophomore album, Meir (which means “more” in Norwegian), produced by Converge’s Kurt Ballou, on March 26, 2013. Their first single, “Bruane Brenn," has early critical acclaim from several tastemaker outlets including Stereogum, who raves, “It’s a total blast of riffs, adrenaline, football chants, and guitar solos, and in its four minutes, you get five decades of rock ‘n’ roll, compressed into one massive speedball hit.” The single will be available on iTunes beginning February 5, 2013 and will be available as an instant download when you pre-order the album. An exclusive CD/T-shirt bundle will also be available that day at the Roadrunner Records webstore. For more information, visit http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com.
