ALAZKA from Recklinghausen started their journey in 2012 as BURNING DOWN ALASKA. After a few line-up changes they published their debut-EP »Values & Virtues« in March 2015 via Redfield Records. Since then they have played four European tours, including their own headline tour, main support for BEING AS AN OCEAN and the „Impericon Never Say Die! Tour“, as well as several well-known festivals across Europe (WITH FULL FORCE, SUMMER BREEZE, GRASPOP, SOUTHSIDE e.g.). Further they have played support shows for Bands like NORTHLANE, THE GHOST INSIDE and PARKWAY DRIVE on several occasions. In January 2016, Kassim joined the band as a second vocalist and appeared on the song ‘Blossom’ for the first time ever. This song was published while running their first headline tour. At the end of March 2017 they announced to change their name into ALAZKA because they wanted to have a name that perfectly describes their musical style and personality. Also, the former name of the band was chosen when most of the current line-up actually wasn’t in the band yet. After the change of their band name they’ve signed a record deal with Arising Empire and SharpTone Records.
