Barracks formed in early 2010 from the remnants of Acalmbefore which featured Simon, Martin and Kane and joined together with Hunter and Keir to complete the line up.
Defining their style as Post/Melodic Hardcore, Barracks offers music with depth that maximises the use of every instrument within the band. The use of interesting tempo changes, heavy riffs, melodies and hooks, combining with lyrics and vocal stylings that add to the overall effect, Barracks create musical diversity throughout their songs to give the opportunity to discover something new in the music every time you listen. Also working their live sets to be not only musical, but energetic.
The first offering from Barracks is an EP featuring four tracks of melody ridden hardcore. Recorded in Tauranga, over six days in a two month period, with Nathan Sowter (Take The Willing) producing, engineering and mixing the EP, and Zorran Mendonsa (New Way Home) mastering the tracks, the final product is just a glimpse of what Barracks is set to unleash in New Zealand and beyond.
