Karisma Records have inked a deal with Rockers TIEBREAKER that initially sees the label release two full-length albums from the band.   First up will be the re-release of TIEBREAKERS’s debut full-length album “We Come From The Mountains”, which was previously self-released in Norway, and which Karisma plans to release internationally in both CD and digital formats in the autumn of this year.   In the meantime, the band plans to move to a cabin in the Norwegian countryside during  August to concentrate on their sophomore full-length album, about which more details will be released at a later date.

Formed  by five childhood friends in 2011 in Odda, Hordaland, TIEBRAKER emerged from the Norwegian underground and within a few very short years grew into one of the finest rock bands in the country.  With their high-energy shows, TIEBREAKER have established a solid reputation on the live circuit, playing over 200 shows since 2013, including a tour of Texas, where the band played eleven shows in nine days.

TIEBREAKER’s lineup of Thomas Espeland Karlsen on vocals, Eirik Wik Haug and Olav Areklett Vikingstad on guitars, Patrick Andersson on bass and Pål Gunnar Dale on drums, create a sound that blends classic  70’s rock with today’s dirty rock and blues style and a pinch of prog thrown into the mix.   A perfect fit for Karisma Records growing roster of top notch bands.

To coincide with the announcement of their new record deal, TIEBREAKER have debuted a video of the band playing live at the ABC Studios.  Filmed by Gregor from and produced by Kjetil Ulland, the video can be seen below and on the band’s YouTube channel at  or on the Karisma Records channel at
