Sweden’s ANTARKTIS (feat. IN MOURNING and ex-OCTOBER TIDE members) ink deal with Agonia Records
ANTARKTIS first started out as an after work side project from Björn and Tobias many years ago. A few songs were made but the idea of a band was laid on ice before it ever saw the light of day. Years later ideas were picked up again and given new life in 2013 by a complete band line-up consisting of Björn and Tobias in company of Jonas on drums and Daniel on bass and lead vocals. A debut EP was recorded under former band name Majalis.
As a band consisting only of members being a part of other musical acts, ANTARKTIS might be considered somewhat of a side project, but a side project in the shape of a real band getting great portions of dedication and love from its members. Since the release of the debut EP, the band has done a bunch of live shows, festivals and a shorter tour. Steadily growing closer as a unit, continuously writing and working on new material.
