Official press release:

Roadrunner Records is pleased to announce the signing of Norwegian adrenaline-pushers of heavy rock and roll, Kvelertak. The band will release their highly anticipated sophomore album, Meir (which means "more" in Norwegian), produced by Converge's Kurt Ballou, on March 26, 2013. Their first single, "Bruane Brenn," has early critical acclaim from several tastemaker outlets including Stereogum, who raves, "It's a total blast of riffs, adrenaline, football chants, and guitar solos, and in its four minutes, you get five decades of rock 'n' roll, compressed into one massive speedball hit." The single will be available on iTunes beginning February 5, 2013 and will be available as an instant download when you pre-order the album.

Dave Rath, Senior Vice President of A&R at Roadrunner Records says of the signing, "Every decade or so, hard rock and heavy metal gets a well-deserved kick in the ass. Kvelertak is the band to do just that. These guys remind us that rock music should truly affect us. Roadrunner is proud to deliver Kvelertak to a world waiting for a musical awakening. If this band doesn't get your heart racing, then you don't have one."
