Adept Posts "Carry The Weight" Video

Adept just released a new music video taken off the upcoming "Sleepless" album - check out "Carry The Weight" below. Napalm Records comments:

"Is there a better or more beautiful reason for lack of a good night`s sleep than Adept? These Swedes have been around since 2004, and with their diverse brand of post hardcore / metalcore they've easily turned into Scandinavia's best known genre export - whilst also proving with their fourth full length Sleepless, that years of sweaty live shows and persistence have provided the ultimate fine-tuning!

"Adept is hosting a special listening party for 'Sleepless' today at 7:00 PM GMT (2:00 PM EST). This amazing event will see the band listening to the new record in its entirety while providing commentary for each track. The band will also host a Q&A session and exclusive party footage that will be shown on Adept's Periscope. To join in on the action be sure to follow @ADEPTONROAD on Periscope.

"The band has been working on 'Sleepless' for the past year and has now brought the album to life through the infamous Studio Fredman. With no need to feel ashamed of its catchiness, 'Sleepless' is still firmly rooted in HC credibility and raw fever!" More...

Adept Signs With Napalm Records

Swedish outfit Adept just announced a worldwide signing with Napalm Records. Upcoming album "Sleepless" is already in the starting blocks & set to be released on February 19, 2016. The band comments:

"We are happy to announce that we have signed with Austria's finest Napalm Records. We can also reveal that our new album 'Sleepless' will be released on February 19th. Originally planned to be released summer 2015 this album has been an absolute roller coaster to make.

"Recorded in January and then re-recorded in September we can finally shine a light on this album. Through the ups and downs we created something truly beautiful with 'Sleepless.' A melodic hard-hitting album with its roots to our early days. Thanks to Napalm Records we have a new found strength and confidence to push us forward. We can't wait to show you what we've been working on. Bring on February."

Billie Klein - Napalm Records A&R - adds: "We are more than happy to finally have Adept on board. Here is a young band that combines furious metal, uplifting & catchy melodies and post-rock atmospheres and is always ready to step on stage and rock, no matter the situation. Welcome to the Napalm Family!" More...
