BARRELS were started in 2013 in Hamburg, Germany. The love for different kinds of independent rock music made them create their own mixture of Helmet-like grooves, Quicksand-ish chords, Texas-is-Reason-influenced harmonies, always aiming at the right balance between rough sounding energy and harmonic flows. The results have been put to stage opening up for a variety of differently sounding independent bands such as The Appleseed Cast, Karma To Burn, Pilot to Gunner, Quicksand and The Riverboat Gamblers – and all of these combinations actually turned out to work very well.

In May 2015, the band's debut album has been recorded at Tonmeisterei in Oldenburg with Roland "Role" Wiegner. Among the long list of German bands that recorded their albums at Tonmeisterei are Marathonmann, Escapado, Omega Massif, and Long Distance Calling. Dan Coutant mastered the album at Sun Room Audio Studio in Cornwall, New York. Dan, who has also mastered albums by Clutch, Jawbox, Coliseum, The Sword and many others, is a good friend since his band Joshua started working with Arctic Rodeo back in 2011. The result of all the work will be out on vinyl March 24th 2016.


The standard LP will be on pressed on silver/black mixed vinyl. A special LP version of the record is now also available as part 6 of Arctic Rodeo's Zum Heimathafen Art Series. This limited early-bird-one-time edition is pressed on white/green/silver mixed vinyl and comes with an exclusive silkscreen art printed, numbered and signed by the hands of our friend Alex at Zum Heimathafen. It is exclusively available for at the Arctic Rodeo webstore and at the German mailorder Flight 13.
