After a busy couple of years, consisting of recording sessions, gigs, tours and records released on this label, Three Days From Retirement (or 3DFR if you're in a rush) are gathering momentum.

Formed in 2013 in Edinburgh and with a couple of line-up changes since, 3DFR are being heard by more and more people. With a sound inspired by bands like Mogwai or Explosions in the Sky, their first self-titled EP (link below to bandcamp) takes its cues from their regular jam sessions and totally blew me away the first time I heard it. Which is why they are here.

Their first release on Infinite Hive was the storming single "What Is Dead May Never Die" at the beginning of September 2015, to great acclaim by friends and fans alike on social media. Their follow-up EP "If We Keep Walking, Eventually We'll Fall Off" came out on 9th November 2015, links and artwork can be found further down this page and all of their music is on their Bandcamp. The single and EP can also be found via iTunes/Apple Music, Amazon mp3, Google Play Music, and Spotify.

Prog Shout on Bandcamp

"...3DFR - Shatner's Rhapsody is amazing composition. A simple melody holds together a wall of atmosphere symphonic layers until mid way through with a explosion of dark metal with thick guitar layers....brilliant soundscapes..." click for more...
