Sanktuary bassist Cole Hume comments:
“On behalf of the Skank Squad, I am unbelievably stoked to finally be on the eve of releasing our debut album Something Fierce upon the world. A mighty appreciation goes out to Matt Day and Spread the Metal Records as well as all those along the way, who without would not have made this possible. We can only hope that all who give a listen will appreciate the blood, sweat, tears and beers upon beers that went into the making of this record. So horns up to the metal heads of Canada and the world and we are pumped to hear what has to be said of what we think to be Something Fierce!”

Sanktuary kicked things off with two back-to-back EPs – 2009′s self-titled release and 2010′s Black Magic Brew – and soon followed that up with a massive move from Whitehorse, Yukon to Halifax, Nova Scotia.
After touring the country following their epic relocation and being faced with a major blow in Toronto that saw their van and nearly all their gear get stolen, Sanktuary turned things around with a third EP in 2011, Tundrastruck (a 3 way split with Black Moor and Metallian), followed by them signing to Spread the Metal Records, which sent them all the way back to Whitehorse to record ‘Something Fierce’.
