Perfectly combining djent and metalcore, Canadian band The Northern stays true to themselves within a unique sound that fans have grown to love. The Northern signed with Tragic Hero Records to release their label debut full length “Solstice” in 2017.
“Solstice” was received in an extremely positive light, hitting #5 on the iTunes metal charts upon release day. The album has been featured in many notable outlets and playlists such as Alternative Press, Lambgoat, Revolver magazine, New Noise, It Djents, Rock the Walls – Idobi Radio, New Music Inferno, multiple metalcore Spotify playlists and many more.
The band released their late 2018 single “Samsara”, to overwhelming positive reviews, and being added to Spotify playlist Got Djent? where it remains to this day. The song also debuted their new vocalist Mike Cutway and truly represented what the band has to offer. They toured consistently in 2018 through late 2019, including several international tours in the USA and Canada with bands such as VRSTY, Sleepwaker, Pangaea, ENOX and A Scent Like Wolves.
With the global pandemic stalling touring plans, the band is currently in the release cycle for their upcoming independent EP “Cloudburst”, as well as preparing to record a second EP. After parting ways from Tragic Hero Records, their first single “Pale Horse” and second single “Porcelain Skin” (released in late 2020), and most recent single “Sleepless” have received excellent reception. They were added to numerous Spotify playlists and featured on idobi Radio’s “Rock the Walls”, as well as racking up impressive YouTube numbers on their channel.
