As mentioned above, UNLEASH THE ARCHERS are beyond excited and humbled to be the 2021 recipients of the ‘Metal/Hard Music Album of the Year’ JUNO Award for their latest album, Abyss! The JUNO events, which took place over the course of this past weekend, recognize Canadian musical artists and bands for their creative achievements. The band was recognized during Friday’s JUNO Opening Night Awards, presented by Music Canada.
Upon its release in August of 2020, Abyss scored banner praise from critics and fans alike, with Stereogum dubbing the opus “a ripper”, and Bandcamp enforcing it as “a mandatory listen”. Abyss also charted worldwide, debuting at the #1 spot on the US Current Hard Music and Top New Artist Albums charts, as well as #4 and #8 on the US and Canadian Billboard Top 200 Hard Rock charts, respectively.
