Barbarian Hermit Return This Summer

May 12, 2024

APF's next release will be the new album by Barbarian Hermit, their first collection of new material for six years.

Recorded by Joe Clayton at No Studio and mastered by Chris Fielding (Foel Studios), the album sees the return of original vocalist Simon Scareltt who helped craft the band’s debut ‘One’ EP, originally released in 2016 (and reissued on APF Records in 2021).

Since the release of their debut album ‘Solitude And Savagery’ in 2018 the band have gone on to perform at the likes of Bloodstock Festival twice, Doomlines and Riffolution Festival, as well as playing alongside Green Lung, Crowbar, PIJN, Boss Keloid, and Raging Speedhorn.

More information about the album, and the release of the first single, will come in a few weeks. Stay tuned!

Urzah - Of Decay

April 23, 2024

OUT TODAY: URZAH's stunning new single - Of Decay.

"A track that see’s the Bristolian quartet marring monolithic riffs in the hulking key of URNE with the viscous atmosphere and immediate haste of acts such as ACID THRONE and TUSKAR, the single is a pyroclastic flow of riffs and post-metal orientated dynamism, one perfect for those who want their face seared off." - NOIZZE

Of Decay is taken from forthcoming album The Scorching Gaze, out on APF on 3rd May.


Happy Anniversary To Us!

March 27, 2024

Little celebrate on this Wednesday morning. APF was born 7 years ago today.

Having wanted to start a record label for some time, it all began on 27th March 2017 when Under became the first band to give in, say yes, and sign on the dotted line. 2 months later their Slick album would be our first release: APF001.

7 years later APF has put out 96 albums, EPs, standalone singles and compilations by and including 42 different artists. You've streamed the riffs over 6 million times on all platforms, and 30,000 physical items have left the building so far.

Huge love to all the bands for trusting APF with their creative endeavours, and to all of you for listening, buying, and going to the shows.

Next up from APF: Urzah's The Scorching Gaze album on 3rd May. Coming soon: new Barbarian Hermit, Swamp Coffin, TORSO and lots more. Off we go into year 8. No rest for the wicked.

Happy Wednesday all!
