Ahead of their set at Roskilde Festival this coming weekend, Copenhagen’s Halshug have announced the completion of their new album, ready for an autumn release through Southern Lord.
Halshug’s second studio full-length, "Sort Sind" delivers ten ripping new tracks, each a reflection on fragments of the human experience expressed in the form of hardcore punk, the album’s title translating to ‘Black Mind.’ A bruising record, Sort Sind revs up motorcycle-fuelled d-beat akin to Austin-based Impalers and other contemporaries, and retains the grating raw punk that made their "Blodets Bånd" debut so potent, the songs showing an even more destructive and elevated approach to their songwriting. Recorded live, produced and mixed at Ballade Studios in Copenhagen by Lasse Ballade, who also produced and mixed "Blodets Bånd", the "Sort Sind" LP was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege.
"Sort Sind" is based on the band’s experiences growing up in neglected parts of Denmark in the last twenty years, and their intention is to make great ripping hardcore punk music that people can get off too; to contribute to their scene and get listeners moving with their energy. Catch a bit of live Halshug footage, and stream their Southern Lord debut, "Blodets Bånd", via Bandcamp.
Southern Lord will release Halshug’s "Sort Sind" on CD, LP, and digital platforms in Autumn, with a confirmed street date, as well as the cover art, track listing, audio samples, and much more from the album to be presented over the coming months.
In the meantime, Halshug are gearing up to perform at Denmark’s mammoth Roskilde Festival this weekend, preceded by a set at K-Town Festival and other performances, and are now booking new live shows advancing the release of the Sort Sind LP. The band will play in their home-town of Copenhagen supporting Los Crudos in July, and will make their maiden trek to the US late this Summer for an East Coast tour. Stand by for new live dates to be announced shortly.
