"Death Tunes" out on November 4th!
No compromising, no reading between the lines, all blood and soul. In a matter of few years young guns Tiebreaker have emerged to the top flight of Norwegian rock & roll, hard believers in this mantra. Born and demoralized in the deep fjords of Norway. Between massive nature and industrial silence.
Tiebreaker merge fiery high-octane melodic riffing, dripping with melancholy. Combining the nerve of 2000s rock & roll, with the utmost desperation and jangly raw power of early garage-rock. In a live context, the band delivers a sound and stage presence reminding of MC5 and The Hellacopters.
Tiebreaker released their eponymous debut-EP in 2012. Touring sporadically, the band slowly started to gain a following throughout Norway. In 2013 the band traveled to SXSW in Austin, Texas to play a number of unofficial SXSW-shows. Resulting in a total of 11 performances in 9 days. The band repeated the success at SXSW in 2014.
In October 2014, Tiebreaker released their first LP ”We Come From The Mountains” and toured extensively in Norway. After a long club-run the band ended up playing many of the biggest Norwegian festivals, delivering several critically acclaimed performances. The band was also invited to join legends Enslaved on a 3 week Norwegian tour. The band finished touring the record with a 6 week-long European tour in the early 2016.
During the fall of 2015 the band moved to a small cabin in the west, and wrote their second album over a time period of 3 months. The album was recorded in Oslo in December 2015, with producer Bjarte Rolland (Kvelertak). The album, ”Death Tunes”, will be released on Karisma Records in September 2016.
It's time to take rock & roll away from the tiring circuit and make it a
melodic-blazing, ass-slinging, foot-through-the-floor sprint.
