Icelandic retro rock three-piece THE VINTAGE CARAVAN have officially signed a worldwide contract with Napalm Records.
Since their formation in 2006 and the release of their self-titled debut full length in 2009, their virtuosic, nostalgic sound trademark paired with astonishing modern elements precisely hit the mark. The youngbloods straight from Reykjavik are casting a spell on all fans of guitar driven, yet bewitching retro-sounding rock. In a blueprint between 70’s inspired vintage prog and southern rock, their manifold sound-structure vibrates in a harmonizing synthesis with classic rock elements.
Known for their impetus and high-voltage live performances, e.g. as the opener for Opeth last year, THE VINTAGE CARAVAN have announced their signing in the most charming manner: an intimate acoustic set on the Napalm Facebook channel as a part of the #NapalmSofaSeries. Re-watch the set HERE!

Welcome to the Napalm family!“
