Hate filled hardcore from St Albans, UK.
Parting with your frontman, merely weeks after the release of your breakthrough debut album, is not an event many could take in their stride; the annals of musical history are not exactly littered with bands that have lived to tell the tale. But Your Demise are amongst a determined few, the British quintet standing tall at the climax of the busiest, most demanding year of their collective lives - unbeaten, unbroken, unscarred, having positively transformed adversity into rebirth.
Indeed, within a fortnight of the split with their former vocalist in July 2009, Your Demise were playing their first shows with Ed McRae at the mic, the band knowing without hesitation that they had struck frontman gold. Since Ed's induction into the fold, life has been somewhat of a whirlwind for YD, the quintet touring relentlessly on either side of the Atlantic, on back to back runs alongside everyone from Misery Signals, The Ghost Inside and Raised Fist to Unearth, Stick To Your Guns and The Devil Wears Prada, pushing their live show to the next level and winning new fans everywhere they went.
In April 2010, at the conclusion of eight months of touring that had taken them all over Europe, the UK and North America, Your Demise found themselves temporary residents of Garden Grove, California, energised and excited to create new music that reflected their positivity and new-found sense of unity. Inspired by their surroundings and the fresh fuel at their core, Your Demise took to writing as a collective for the first time, drawing on a wider pool of influence and unafraid to look beyond their genre's genepool.
The result is new album The Kids We Used To Be..., an explosion of energy and ideas that sees Your Demise ascending to a higher state. Offering an addictive cocktail of hardcore and metal, punk and pop-punk, pop and rock, The Kids We Used To Be... is as hard-hitting as it is uplifting, as contemplative as it is in your face and as accessible as it is downright nasty.
Making his debut recorded appearance, Ed McRae fires on all cylinders, showcasing the confidence, creativity and eclecticism that landed him the job, his stellar performance ensconced within his band's thrillingly dynamic, next level songwriting - Your Demise loading their bases with killer anthems-to-be.
The Kids We Used To Be... will be released on 20th September 2010 through Visible Noise. Currently touring across the US supporting The Devil Wear Prada, Your Demise will celebrate their album release with their UK and European fans on the Imperial Never Say Die Tour alongside Parkway Drive, Comeback Kid and more.
