“Nothing short of amazing, perfectly executed noise wrapped in an emotive blanket…top stuff!”
Post Hardcore crew ‘Death Kindly Waits For Me’ express a sound that packs concise riffery and energetic beats with pop sensibilities. The rising quartet unleash their spanking new EP ‘Wire//Iron//Blood’ on Monday 2nd March, from all digital stores.
With a slew of inspiration stemming from Thursday, Being As An Ocean, Finch and Taking Back Sunday, Death Kindly Waits For Me have absorbed their predecessors’ influences and added their own imposing stamp. In doing so, they now despatch an engrossing sound that is accessible and earnest.
Coming at you from Northamptonshire and featuring Adam Fitch (Vocals), Max Freeston (Guitar/Vocals), Adam Cator (Bass/Screams) and Josh Miller (Drums), Death Kindly Waits For Me pull from the fundamentals of emo and hardcore and harvest a sound that is both fast and slow, and altogether heavy yet melodic. The foursome give their all to an audience and have even played shows with broken bones and bloodied hands. DKWFM push the barriers and deliver passionate, emotive, and energetic live shows that truly captivate. Since their formation at the start of 2014, the melodic hardcorers have racked up shows with a host of bands such as Decade, Light You Up, Devil Sold His Soul, Terraform, Emp!re, Our Hollow Our Home, Hey Vanity, Attention Thieves and Flood Of Red.
The four piece are now set to drop their debut EP ‘Wires//Iron//Blood’ on Monday 2nd March. The EP is an engaging piece of post-hardcore. Right from the opening lines of ‘Cutting Room Floor’, which firmly displays the band’s deft ability to pull in the listener with a hook that will need to be prised from your inside, to the stinging bite of ‘Best Friends’, which goes for the jugular but still manages to unleash a killer refrain, and to the closing track ‘Decade Of War’, as it flaunts their nimble use of dynamics, this record is sure to reinforce the band’s credentials as one to watch for the coming year and beyond.
