Kvelertak Signs With Roadrunner Records To Release "Meir"

Roadrunner Records is pleased to announce the signing of Norwegian adrenaline-pushers of heavy rock and roll, Kvelertak. The band will release sophomore album, "Meir" (which means “more” in Norwegian), produced by Converge’s Kurt Ballou, on March 26th, 2013.

The first single, “Bruane Brenn,” will be available on iTunes beginning February 5th, 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.

Dave Rath, Senior Vice President of A&R at Roadrunner Records says of the signing, “Every decade or so, hard rock and heavy metal gets a well-deserved kick in the ass. Kvelertak is the band to do just that. These guys remind us that rock music should truly affect us. Roadrunner is proud to deliver Kvelertak to a world waiting for a musical awakening. If this band doesn't get your heart racing, then you don't have one.”

Look for North American tour dates to be announced soon. Kvelertak is Erlend Hjelvik (vocals), Vidar Landa (guitars), Bjarte Lund Rolland (guitars), Maciek Ofstad (guitars), Marvin Nygaard (bass) and Kjetil Gjermundrød (drums).
