join forces with LET IT BURN RECORDS!
Even tought the days of Sweden as the No.1 country for hardcore bands are long over, there's still a small but active scene up there. For quite some time ANCHOR have now been the lighthouse of Swedish Hardcore and we feel more than honored to announce that they have just signed a deal with Let it Burn Records.
With almost 300 Shows in 4 years (including two full US tours) and a rear cover of a whole bunch of amazing releases, ANCHOR are now set and ready to release their new album on Let it Burn Records in June 2011.
ANCHOR about the signing "We're very happy to announce that our upcoming, yet to be named, album will see the light of day this summer through LET IT BURN RECORDS. To say that we're excited about this cooperation is a massive understatement. It's a privilege to be working with such a caliber label, one of Europe's longest running, one we've been following for many years and we're anxiously looking forward to see what the future holds for us."
Inspired by the likes of Judge, Entombed, Skitsystem and Verse, ANCHOR have written their most resounding music ever, that shows a natural progression from their last releases. The band describes their new sound as "harder, filthier and yet more emotional than anything we've done before."
The band is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on their new album: "As we speak we're halfway through a 10-day-session at Studio Bengt, Lund with our friend Gustav Brunn and we already feel like we've outdone all of our previous releases. It feels like we've been moving in a darker and heavier direction. The result this far is mindblowing and we can't bare ourselves to show the world this work."
To cut this short: Everyon at Let it Burn Records can't wait to release this album!
