Hamburg-based stoner metal / sludge outfit High Fighter have just hit the studio to record their first full-length album, and now the band announces that they have signed a worldwide deal with Finland's elite Svart Records.
Born in the summer of 2014 by former members of A Million Miles, Buffalo Hump, and Pyogenesis, High Fighter self-released their first (and critically acclaimed) debut EP titled The Goat Ritual in the same year, followed by numerous shows all over Europe and the UK in 2015. With one EP out and only in the band's first year, High Fighter have already shared the stage with such acts as Corrosion of Conformity, Ahab, Mammoth Storm, The Midnight Ghost Train, and Greenleaf, among others, and appeared at such festivals as Stoned From The Underground, Sonic Blast Portugal, Red Smoke in Poland, Hamburg Metaldayz, and many more, including an exclusive press showcase live at Wacken Open Air. After heavily touring in 2015, the band has now hit the renowned Rama Studios in Mannheim, Germany to record their first, highly anticipated full-length album, set to be released in June 2016.
"When we introduced the band to the public by the end of 2014 and released our first EP the same year, we would never have imagined what amazing things and opportunities would come up for us and where the still-young road of High Fighter would go," states vocalist Mona Miluski. "In only one year, we were lucky enough to tour heavily, played shows and tours with so many fantastic bands, rocked several festival stages, seen amazing places, and met the greatest people out there. But when we started the band, we also would never have imagined signing a deal with one of the best underground labels this scene has to offer and after this very short band history. Having built up bands such as Mantar and Hexvessel, Svart Records' artist roster speaks for itself, and we're over the moon to have signed with such a reputable and fantastic record label. We look forward to this journey, and can't wait till our first album will see the light of day on Svart!"
High Fighter are currently recording at Rama Studios in Mannheim, Germany. To support the upcoming album live, the band has already announced several shows for 2016, such as Desertfest Berlin and Summer Breeze Festival, and will be announcing more tour dates and upcoming gigs this year soon. Mark your summer calendar: High Fighter's first full-length album is set to be released on June 10th on Svart Records!
