Tiebreaker PR 2016

With their new album “Death Tunes” set to be released on Karisma Records this Autumn, Norwegian Rockers TIEBREAKER have offered fans a glimpse into what will be the band’s second full-length album with the track “Killer” which is streaming exclusively on Vive Le Rock at  and Metal Hammer Norway at

Combining the sound of Rock & Roll brought up to date, plus the raw energy of early Garage Rock, TIEBREAKER quickly found itself amongst the top Norwegian Rock Bands, thanks to the chemistry of a lineup comprised 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.  Furthermore, it’s  a chemistry that works equally well in either a studio setting or a live environment.

“Death Tunes” was written over a period of three months in a small cabin in the west of Norway, and was produced by KVELERTAK guitarist Bjarte Lund Rolland.  Recording took place at the Amper Tone Studio in Oslo, owned by Kjartan Kristiansen of the DUMDUM BOYS, whilst the engineering/mixing/mastering is by Nick Terry (TURBONEGRO, KVELERTAK, LIBERTINES) with assistant engineers Kim Lillestøl and Espen Andersen.   The end result is a high-octane album packed with melodic riffing and spiced up with a dash of bluesy melancholy.

The ten-track album, which includes the video single “Anywhere But Here”,  will be released in CD and digital formats on the 21st  October, whilst the vinyl edition will be available from the 19th November .  Artwork for “Death Tunes” is by Robin Gnista.  Tracklisting is as follows:

  1. Hell
  2. Pan American Grindstone
  3. Cannonball
  4. Commando
  5. Anywhere But Here
  6. The Deep
  7. Building Up to Die
  8. Killer
  9. Float Away
  10. Heavy Lifting
