Brit newcomers , and yesterday’s Band of the Day, I See Vultures have just unleashed their powerful new single, “Neversafe”, through all streaming sites. The rising noisemakers will also drop a new video for the track on Friday 23rd October everywhere except here… because we’ve got the first play!
Coming at you from Leicester since the end of 2018, I See Vultures are an awakening to the senses, expressing a ferocious sound that draws from many quarters. Citing as influences everyone from At The Drive In, Comeback Kid, Rage Against The Machine, Gallows, Beartooth, and Linkin Park, I See Vultures consist of: Dan Adamson (Vocals), Dave Young (Lead Guitar and Vocals), Jamie Pywell (Bass Guitar and Vocals), Mitch Pinkerton (Rhythm Guitar and Vocals), and Hussein Uraiby (Drums).
With a diverse background and collective vision, the energetic quintet set loose their debut release, Escapist, last year, which rapidly gained traction and strong support from Total Rock Radio, as well as with many key websites. Their balls to the wall follow up single, Goodnight, City Lights, dutifully commanded and received widespread attention. The video premiered on Hardcore Worldwide’s Youtube channel, which broadcasts to over four thousand subscribers.
The band were primed to play a string of profile shows both locally and nationally, including a slot at World Record Store Day in Watford, where they were invited to play by Steph Carter (ex Gallows, now Lyoness). These dates, plus more, were temporarily cancelled when the COVID pandemic hit.
With shows on hold, I See Vultures have put a solid focus on writing and recording new music. The fiery fivesome have just released their explosive new single, Neversafe, which offers listeners a chance to explore Dan’s ability to write lyrics with a more nuanced and thought-provoking approach. Musically, the song also highlights the bands ability to push beyond the confines of a regular hardcore band, with their willingness to show vulnerability and allow the music room to breathe. Dan Adamson remarks about the track:
“Neversafe” was a reflection of the mood of our times, sombre and hopeful in equal measures. With rage and frustration punching through, we wanted to reflect it all in the video – 100% DIY in its creation and ensuring we show who we really are.
With a EP on the way and plans to extensively tour soon, I See Vultures are set to break through in 2021.
