Valley Heat Records are elated to bring you our next cassette release. KODIAK EMPIRE are a five-piece alt-rock band from Brisbane, bringing many musical flavours together to create a dramatic blend of progressive rock. The group concocts a harmonious mix of peace and chaos in an attempt to bring fantasy and personal inquiry to life through sound.

Highly engaging and powerful live performances have ensured a healthy and loyal following in the wake of their first release ‘Urashima’, with the long awaited follow-up ‘Silent Bodies’ cementing their status as true innovators of the Brisbane progressive movement.

After landing the highly sought-after support slots for Caligula's Horse and Katatonia to close out the year, these local lads definitely deserve your attention in 2017.
