DROWN THIS CITY ARE A POST-HARDCORE UPSTART READY TO TAKE ON THE AUSSIE HEAVY MUSIC SCENE…
Time to set a new paradigm. A new way of thinking around heavy music. Drown This City are part of a new breed of heavy post- hardcore music – determined, focused, angry – and with all the repower in their arsenal to make the requisite noise and calamity.
This is a band who, within their rst 12 months of being together – put out their widely-praised debut 5-track EP False Idols, sold out their rst live show ever at Workers Club in Melbourne, were invited to play Rolling Stone’s Live Lodge event series, toured nationally with Falling in Re- verse, supported Lacuna Coil and Capture the Crown, signed to Bear Parts Music for manage- ment and were invited to play alongside bands like Violent Soho, Northlane, Thy Art is Murder, Polaris and more at 2017 UNIFY GATHERING Festival in Regional Victoria in January.
Drown This City have turned heads in their short time together and things are only building for them with new music on the way.
DTC set themselves apart through the amazing vocal talents of Vox Singing Academy student Alex Reade. Her vocals are both brutal and beautiful at the same time and skilfully switches from insane, esh- ripping screams to soaringly melodic passages in the blink of an eye.
Blunt Mag premiered the stream of Drown This City’s debut EP False Idols in mid-2016 and had nothing but positivity about the future of the band. “A chaotic blend of metalcore and post-hardcore, the ve-piece have carved out a niche all of their own, teaming monstrous vocals with crushing breakdowns and mind-melting electronic elements. And as for frontwom- an Alex Reade? Few vocalists can serve up a sound that’s equal parts brutal and beautiful, and even fewer are women in the heavy scene. Reade skilfully switches between esh-ripping screams and soaring melodic passages like it ain’t no thang.”
With their lineup and their unique and highly developed sound rmly in place, the band are living this new paradigm. Through their music, live show and lm clips, DTC are breaking down walls of old-world expectation. They are breaking trends in heavy music around genre and pathways to success and showing what can be achieved through willpower, determination and an amazing live show.
2017 seen DTC play are along side such bands as Alexisonfire, Violent Soho, Northlane (Vox Singing Academy student), Everytime I Die, The Getaway Plan, Ocean Grove (Vox Singing Academy student) on the main stage at the UNFD festival. With national and world tours planed be sure to catch them
in a city close to you.
Ready yourself for the blisteringly anthemic monster that is Drown This City, because they have only just begun to show the world what they are made of.
