Sheffield’s metalcore five piece are kicking off 2014 as they mean to go on with a 2 week January tour across the UK that will see them start off at The Leadmill in their hometown on 18th January before finishing up in Oldham on January 31st taking in plenty of the Northern towns and cities on their way.
After a great 2013 that saw them release their brilliant debut album ‘We Were Made To Walk The Stars’ [read my review here] and become more well known not just in their home city but further afield too. It’s not only their hard work and determined attitude that has got them to this point but their ability to write really good tracks with a wonderfully catchy yet completely metal sound. Songs such as ‘Citizens of Earth’, ‘Facing The Fire’, ‘Hold Your Breath’ and ‘Caught In The Crossfire’, all from their debut, were stand outs for all the right reasons and will surely go down a treat on the band’s first headline tour.
The tour will be entitled the ‘Ground Zero’ tour after their single of the same name released back in September, it was part of the ‘Orbis Trilogy’ of videos the band released to coincide with the album. The quintet will be joined by label mates and fellow Mixtape Couture featured band, Circle of Reason, for all dates bar the opening night in Sheffield. With two excellent bands playing out their modern take on metal music every single night it is sure to be a good tour full of great music, excellent performances and surely one that will be a good springboard for both bands and the rest of what 2014 will hold for them.
