With a new label home of Victory Records, Stockholm rock quintet Like Torches have separated themselves from Sweden’s music scene since their debut, 2013’s Keep Your Head High. Burning like their namesake, these five emotionally charged individuals are set to release “Loves And Losses,” later this fall. The proof is in the first single released, ‘Silver Lines.’

“We have never met a label as enthusiastic and excited about Like Torches as Victory, so we are all intrigued to see what we can accomplish together,” explains vocalist Jonathan Karn. “It is an honor to be working with a label that has released so many of the legendary records we grew up listening to.” Continue reading »

We Were Sharks is proving once again that pop-punk is not dead with the colorful premiere of their new music video ‘Hotel Beds.’ Just weeks away from the release of their upcoming album “Lost Touch,” these tenacious Canadians have kicked of their new tour on February 2, marking their third tour since signing to Victory Records.“Lost Touch” will be available everywhere on February 23, 2018.

The six-piece recently shook things up with release of the video ‘Ashley,’ a gushy love song about the bad girl that is always on your mind. ‘Hotel Beds’ is the antithesis, as vocalist Randy Frobel explains, “This is more like an anti-love song about that one person who has you wrapped around their finger, as the lyric goes.” Guitarist Colin Jacques concurs, “This song has an anxiousness to it. It’s about that one person who truly has a hold on you. Every song you hear seems to be about them. Every notification on your phone could be them. Every bit of you is drawn to that person, and you just can’t shake them out of your head.” Continue reading »

Victory Records is proud to announce the addition of dynamic punk ensemble We Were Sharks to the labels ever growing roster. With the debut premiere of their brand new video ‘Beyond Repair,’ the Canadian six-piece powerhouse hits the road tonight ready to douse crowds with material from their new album, Lost Touch, set for release on February 23, 2018.

“Growing up, the bands that stuck with us the most were bands from Victory, and now we get to be part of that family,” defines guitarist Jason Mooney. “I remember picking up any Victory release and inside you’d find a Victory DVD with the latest music videos. There was no YouTube or Spotify back then, this was your key to what was new and upcoming. It’s an honor to know that we’re part of a team that has made a huge impact in the scene, and we hope that there’s a kid who finds us and feels as excited as we did when we found those bands.”
