Svalbard Sever Ties With Holy Roar Records Ahead Of Their New Album’s Impending Release Date


Svalbard have issued a new statement today (September 09th) revealing that they have severed ties with Holy Roar Records in the wake of the allegations of rape, etc. made against the label’s founder Alex Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick himself has since denied those allegations and resigned from the label.

Svalbard originally had a September 25th release date scheduled for their new album “When I Die, Will I Get Better?” via Translation Loss Records/Holy Roar. Speaking on the decision, the band said in a statement:

“We have severed all ties with Holy Roar Records.

Our thoughts are with the victims. We are sending all our support and solidarity to those who have suffered.

Our upcoming new album will not be released on Holy Roar Records. We are in the process of figuring out what we can do. Please bare with us as we try to find a solution.”
