To be an artist—especially in the heavy music realm—is to take on the mentality and nature of a shark. On one level, you have to be hungry and willing to chase down success as if it were elusive prey. On another level, however, you have to stay moving: without development and growth, complacency and stagnation weigh heavy, dragging even the most solid debut sounds and styles into the dreary depths of monotony and boredom. When it comes to capturing this mentality and making the most of it, few bands have done it as well as Michigan post-hardcore outfit We Came As Romans. In their expansive tenure as a band, they’ve released four full-length releases, charted #8, #11 and #21 respectively on the Billboard Top 200, performed in five continents and 40 different countries and that doesn’t even begin to touch on what they have in the works for 2017.

ALAZKA from Recklinghausen started their journey in 2012 as BURNING DOWN ALASKA. After a few line-up changes they published their debut-EP »Values & Virtues« in March 2015 via Redfield Records. Since then they have played four European tours, including their own headline tour, main support for BEING AS AN OCEAN and the „Impericon Never Say Die! Tour“, as well as several well-known festivals across Europe (WITH FULL FORCE, SUMMER BREEZE, GRASPOP, SOUTHSIDE e.g.). Further they have played support shows for Bands like NORTHLANE, THE GHOST INSIDE and PARKWAY DRIVE on several occasions. In January 2016, Kassim joined the band as a second vocalist and appeared on the song ‘Blossom’ for the first time ever. This song was published while running their first headline tour. At the end of March 2017 they announced to change their name into ALAZKA because they wanted to have a name that perfectly describes their musical style and personality. Also, the former name of the band was chosen when most of the current line-up actually wasn’t in the band yet. After the change of their band name they’ve signed a record deal with Arising Empire and SharpTone Records. Arrived at their new label home, they also released their first single as ALAZKA: ‘Empty Throne’.
