Secret Cutter to obliterate 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.


“We are extremely excited to be playing Roadburn 2019 . We are honored to be included in a festival known for experimental and genre bending artists. April cannot come fast enough “

Secret Cutter themselves are best described as genre-bending; they fuse the best bits of sludge, with the rawest of grind and countless other audio pick’n’mix treats. For a three-piece, they make an unholy racket.

As the idea for this showcase developed, we felt as though the stars had aligned when we realised that Secret Cutter would be heading over to this side of the pond right around Roadburn time. How could we resist? We snapped ‘em up, stuck ‘em on the bill and here we are. Do not miss Secret Cutter obliterating Roadburn.

Date: April 12

Time: 15.30-16.20
