British melodic hardcore mob DayShifter are currently streaming their debut single, “In Despair”. Taken from their debut EP Hopeful//Regretful, which is due for release on July 28th, it is available to listen to below.
The debut track “In Despair” takes its name from a Good Samaritan sign on a bridge. I would walk past this sign daily on my way to work. At the time I was in the worst place I’ve been mentally and physically, I felt like no matter what I did, I couldn’t beat this crushing hollow feeling, that giving up is the only option I had left. Seeing that sign everyday haunted my mind and triggered me to write my thoughts into this song.
If you’ve not made plans for your Friday night yet, you can catch the band playing with Greyhaven at Glasgow’s Audio venue tonight (7th July).
Hailing from the North East of England, melodic hardcore mob DayShifter exploded onto the scene with their miasmic debut EP Hopeful//Regretful; a scathing mash of layered riffs and hearty vocals, bursting with energy and vigour.
Touting the likes of Architects, In Hearts Wake, Like Moths To Flames and While She Sleeps as influences, the band have forged a vicious sonic foundation that skips between post rock and hardcore. Something destined to appease fans of heavy music across the board.
Since forming in early 2017, the band wasted no time in laying to tape their debut EP Hopeful//Regretful with Dan Kerr at Avenue Studios. Brandishing a lyrical weight to match the records coarse grooves, and sporting an energetic live show to boot; DayShifter are using every tool in the box as they begin working their way up through the music industry.
