Frontman Ryan Karazija was born in Santa Clara in the United States and initially founded the first indie rock band in 2002 Audrye Sessions. The singer then decided to move to Iceland, precisely in Reykjavík, giving life to the Low Roar project. The band released an album titled with the group name in 2011, while the last album was released in 2021 titled Maybe tomorrow.
The international fortune of the group is closely linked to the publication of Death Stranding, which brought them to the attention of the general public, unfortunately we do not yet know if the band will continue even having lost its frontman and founder. We can only join, in the grief of family and friends, who are coping with this dire loss.
