Need some metalcore on a Friday? Check this lot out.
While their debut album ‘Cross Your Fingers’ introduced this Minnesota quintet as players in the metalcore scene, follow-up ‘Outspoken’ marks them out as legit melodic songwriters. Songs like ‘Tell Me The Truth’ and ‘One Kiss’ – which comprise clean vocals punctuated with screams, rather than the other way around – are highlights of the album. That’s not to say that their heavier parts are bad (if anything, they are a step up from the more saccharine choruses that a lot of post-hardcore bands peddle), but they’re produced identically to their slick choruses, and so lack aggression and impact. Overall, it’s the melodies here that really shine.
It's finally here! We're on site at Leeds all weekend and this page is your one-stop show for all of the photos, videos, reviews and more from Friday.
