Irish atmospheric post-metal, sludge and doom quartet Raum Kingdom has announced its worldwide signing with Argonauta Records. Following their impressive debut album, »Everything & Nothing« (2016), which has been lauded by both fans and international music press alike, Raum Kingdom are currently working on the release of their sophomore full-length album.
“It is with great pleasure that Raum Kingdom can announce it’s teaming up the legendary Argonauta Records for our upcoming release,” the band states. “It will take a great deal of the reasonability of some aspects of the release of the record and let Raum Kingdom focus on what they love doing. We look foward to the relationship in the Future!”
Argonauta Records owner, Gero Lucisano, says: “I’ve been lucky enough to know the band thanks to their stellar opus »Everything & Nothing«, an album dense of emotion and definitely captivating, thanks to its perfect blend of darkness and hope. When I got the chance to hear the new songs, I told myself their sophomore album would have been the perfect addition to the label catalog. Raum Kingdom’s new effort is something beyond everything: emotive, melodic, atmospheric and hypnotizing. A musical journey for our deep senses.”
Raum Kingdom started out in late 2013 on the east coast of Ireland when singer Dave Lee and guitarist Andrew Colohan set out to create a soul crushing experience of sonics. When long time friends; bassist Ronan Connor and drummer Mark Gilchrist joined the line up, the project was ready to express itself. The dark driven Raum Kingdom had found the creative force and sound to start producing music that has gained the band an impressive following in Europe, UK, Canada, The States and Japan. Exploring their collective passion for all heavy genres of music, the four-piece began to channel that energy into what would turn out to be Raum Kingdom’s first, self-titled five track EP, self-released in April 2014. Taken unawares by the instant and positive critical response, Raum Kingdom’s ability to resound with their audience comes from their heart for turning negativity into positivity and the ethos of having a blast doing what they have a passion for. To date, the band has completed numerous shows on the Euro circuit, and released an EP, a split EP with Belgian group All We Expected, and their much acclaimed debut album »Everything & Nothing«, a one hour sonic journey of redemtion and hope.
After the sudden and sad passing of bass player Ronan Connor in March 2021, Raum Kingdom wanted to release their last recordings and writings in respect for Ronan’s memory. The band is now gearing up for their second studio album, showcasing the emotional peaks and valleys of a band matrured, and that will see the light of day via Argonauta Records soon.
