Burning Down Alaska
Burning Down Alaska is a new wave hardcore band from Recklinghausen, Germany that is making its Graspop debut. Last year they released ‘Values & Virtues’, an EP of full-album length with 9 exceptionally mature tracks for such a young band. The use of female vocals and the clean guitars give the album a post hardcore feel and the piano interludes on some of the songs prove they are not afraid to introduce new and unusual elements to the mix. Burning Down Alaska are a breath of fresh air in what many agree is an oxygen-deprived genre.
