Recorded in London with longtime collaborator Mike Lindsay (Tunng), ‘Once In A Long, Long While…’ (out May 5th via Nevado Records) is the follow up to 2014’s ‘0’, which earned Karazija a large new audience after his music was discovered by iconic Japanese video game creator Hideo Kojima. Kojima used Low Roar’s ‘I’ll Keep Coming’ and ‘Easy Way Out’ on two high-profile trailers in 2016 for his Death Stranding video game starring Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, and director Guillermo del Toro.

Born in the San Francisco Bay Area to a mother of Mexican descent and a Lithuanian father, the frontman spent his formative years playing in bands around Northern California before relocating to Iceland in 2010 where he recorded Low Roar’s self-titled debut in his Reykjavik kitchen. Quietly building buzz, he cut the critically acclaimed follow-up, ‘0’, in a converted garage in 2014 before going on to grace the stages of ATP, Eurosonic, Airwaves France, The Great Escape, Lowlands, Iceland Airwaves, and beyond.

After touring the world in support of ‘0’, Karazija spent most of 2016 as a solo traveller, visiting everywhere from Iceland, Sweden, and Poland, to the Bay Area, and Mexico before settling permanently in Warsaw.

In support of ‘Once In A Long, Long While…’, Low Roar will be touring the UK and Europe in late May and early June, including London’s XOYO on May 31st. The European tour follows an extensive tour of Mexico & North America.
