APF RECORDS is delighted to announce that it has signed Hullensian sludge-metal titans BATTALIONS
to the label. We will be issuing their third, as yet untitled, album worldwide during mid-2018.
Battalions was formed in early 2010 in the coastal city of Hull, UK. Their fanbase and support has
steadily grown through incendiary live shows throughout the UK including high-profile support slots with
Conan, Church Of Misery, Sworn Enemy, Ohhms, Slabdragger, Samothrace, Dopethrone and Vinnum
Sabbathi. In 2017 they played on the Hobgoblin Stage at Bloodstock Open Air Festival, and headlined
the Motorhead Roadcrew Stage at the 30,000-capacity Humber Street Sesh.
The band’s first two albums, 2016’s “Nothing To Lose” and this year’s Chris Fielding-produced
“Moonburn” received universal critical praise. Since the writing of the latter the band has slimmed down
from a quintet to a 4-piece, and since its release has continued to play live across the UK, and in the
first half of 2018 will do the same – including on a full countrywide tour with label-mates Pist in April.
A warm welcome to Battalions from all at APF.
