Melodic metalcore from the heart of London, UK.
Established in June 2015,
the London based melodic metalcore 5-piece very early on put live shows and
touring at the top of their agenda, gaining support slots with the likes of Don
Broco, Betraying the Martyrs, Malevolence and Napoleon. Their debut EP
'Wildfire', released July 2016, reached #1 and #3 in the iTunes metal and rock
The following 12 months was spent writing their 2nd EP 'Hollow Hope', released in May 2017, which received the same chart success. Their high octane, no-holds-barred live shows garnered attention, and the band very quickly gained praise and recognition in the UK underground alternative rock scene, securing supports with bands like The Word Alive, Dead by April, Slaves (US).
2018 was mostly spent focusing on writing and recording their forthcoming debut album, with fans getting an early taster of this with a brace of single releases, 'Veins' and 'Casket'. Summer 2018 saw them complete a summer UK headline run with As Everything Unfolds, which culminated in a sold out London show at Thousand Island. They also joined Our Hollow, Our Home, Loathe & Imminence at Holloween in Southampton.
This year kicked off with
a 10 date UK tour as main support to Our Hollow, Our Home, and the shows just keep rolling into the summer and beyond with a bank of appearances at music events and festivals including Camden Rocks, Macmillan Fest, Burn It Down Festival, Holloween and a set at Download after being chosen out of 450 entries to headline Takeover at Download in the Doghouse Tent.
Their debut album 'LOW', recorded with Oz Craggs at Hidden Track Studios, is scheduled for release at the end of the summer.
