We are proud to announce that UK’s hardrockers RED SPEKTOr have signed with us for their upcoming full length! Welcome guys!
Red Spektor is a power trio playing hard rock. Formed in late 2012 to feed the need to play powerful music that continually strives to get back to grass roots.
Drawing inspiration from the dark pre-war blues right through to the British blues explosion of the sixties and the heaviness of the seventies albeit with a modern and dirty twist.
