Your Demise

Hate filled hardcore from St Albans, UK. Parting with your frontman, merely weeks after the release of your breakthrough debut album, is not an event many could take in their stride; the annals of musical history are not exactly littered with bands that have lived to tell the tale. But Your Demise are amongst a determined few, the British quintet standing tall at the climax of the busiest, most demanding year of their collective lives – unbeaten, unbroken, unscarred, having positively transformed adversity into rebirth.
