Starting out as a simple bedroom studio project, guitarist Keshav Dhar has seen SKYHARBOR quickly evolve into one of India’s hottest metal prospects, with huge admiration coming in from some of the biggest names in metal worldwide.
An astonishing amount of buzz also surrounded the band's first ever performance at the Bacardi NH7 Festival in Pune, India earlier this month, where they played to over 1,000 people and were one of the weekend’s highlights.
SKYHARBOR released their debut album 'Blinding White Noise : Illusion & Chaos' on April 23rd, 2012 worldwide via Basick Records to glowing praise from fans and press alike. The band followed up the launch with an epic live performance in support of LAMB OF GOD on their 2012 world tour, where they were joined by vocalist Dan Tompkins and played to nearly 10,000 people.
SKYHARBOR made their debut European appearance with an exclusive show at EUROBLAST Festival in Germany alongside AFTER THE BURIAL, SCAR SYMMETRY, TESSERACT and many more renowned modern progressive bands. The band capped off a highly successful year with two headlining performances in India in December, before taking time off to focus on their second album.
