Do not snooze on A.A.Williams at Roadburn 2019

For 12 years now, Holy Roar Records have been quietly (and sometimes not so quietly) releasing a steady stream of incredible albums. Remaining fiercely independent, with an eager ear to the ground, the label has become home to some of the most exciting rising bands around.

Once they’d caught our eye, and the idea for this label showcase quickly picked up pace and soon we were faced with some difficult choices. It wasn’t so much that we couldn’t choose which bands to feature, more that there were so many that it felt cruel to leave some behind. Such is the depth of the bands on offer to us, we could have given over twice as much space on the line up and still be making those same difficult decisions.

But choose we did, and we’re thrilled to team up with the label to bring you five of their brightest stars for Holy Roar x Roadburn. Don’t miss out on this bounty of bands; Holy Roar Records will be taking over the Hall of Fame on Friday, April 12.


One of the newest recruits to team Holy Roar, A.A Williams will mark a change of pace during Holy Roar x Roadburn – but this is no time to sit down with a pint or go browsing the merch.

You likely won’t have heard of her when you’re reading this but we are so confident that this is going to turn out to be one of those shows that you look back on and can say “I was there at the beginning.” Think of the rawness of Emma Ruth Rundle crossed with the majesty of PJ Harvey and you may be on the right track… but still a long way from the final destination. Do not snooze on A.A.Williams.

“Being so well known for the unique curation of so many groundbreaking artists, it will be a real honour to perform at Roadburn 2019”A.A.Williams.
