The Black Country in England is known for its dark days and hard living, so it is no surprise it spawns bands such as Sealclubber. True to its birthplace, the band creates a unique and depressing sound, mixing sludge metal with roots in crust and hardcore punk.
The band were formed in 2013 and promptly turned heads with the release of their debut EP, Sticky River. This two track taster EP was jointly released by the underground talent pool that is Witch Hunter Records, as well as Carnage Club, the record label formed by members of Opium Lord.
After setbacks in 2015 with private lives and changing lineups, 2016 sees the outfit return with a new offering: debut album "Stoical" due out on North American record label Medusa Crush Recordings.
The album will be released on February 5th, 2016 on CD and limited cassette form, with vinyl being feverishly pursued for its eventual release.
