Napoleon recently announced that they will be releasing their long-awaited debut album ‘Newborn Mind’ on the 27th May 2016 via Basick Records.

Since their inception in 2011, Napoleon have become highly revered on the hardcore scene for seamlessly combining abrasive punk attitude with technical virtuosity and inventive hook laden songwriting. In true punk rock style, Napoleon have barely left the road in their time as a band, touring with Being As An Ocean, The Devil Wears Prada, Architects, Comeback Kid, Defeater, The Amity Affliction, and jumping on countless underground DIY tours across Europe.
Having honed their skills in the live arena, the resulting sound is truly organic and energetic, setting them leagues apart from the many bedroom projects with players of a similar technical calibre.Napoleon could be compared to the likes of Architects, At The Drive In and Propaghandi, who have all shown fearless boundary pushing whilst retaining real attitude and feel.
