2007 saw the release of the bands first release, “Dusty Roads EP” (Kontrabande Records), as well as the bands first tour during the fall. Kraków was also invited as support for Brant Bjork (Kyuss, Fu Manchu) as he visited Bergen, Norway.

Kraków kicked off the new year by playing the Psycho Holiday festival the first weekend of January, before concentrating on developing new material. In May the band will headline Molde Metal Festival, and the summer is devoted to pre-production of the coming album which will be produced by Ivar Bjørnson (Peersen Production, Enslaved), who said about producing the album:
