UK POPCORE CREW ‘THE CITY DIVIDED UNLEASH DEBUT EP & PREPARE FOR WIDESPREAD SHOWS!
Youthful Pop-Metallers ‘The City Divided’ nationally release their debut offering ‘The Endless Moment’ on 6th August through all digital stores.
In their exciting debut record, ’The Endless Moment’, The City Divided have served up a resourceful slice of modern rock stirring the sounds of such bands as Busted, Dead By April, Iron Maiden, and Enter Shikari into the melting pot. The hard-working Hertfordshire quartet bring together intriguing harmonious guitar work and infectious hooks with energetic dynamics to unique effect.
Formed in January 2009 from the ashes of a series of bands from the Hertfordshire area, The City Divided soon went into intense writing and rehearsals with the aim of taking their sound further afield. They soon developed their own style of ‘popcore’, which is a thrilling union of enticing guitar work, breakdowns, and boundless hooks, and at the end of 2011, the pop-metallers headed into the studio with Dan Lancaster (Proceed) to lay down tracks for their debut EP ‘The Endless Moment’.
The four piece came out of the studio with a record that twists and turns, and it’s an engrossing listen. Right from the off, ‘Can’t Stop Their Laughing’ is a hooky opener that will rapidly lodge itself straight into your head. As the EP moves on, it unmistakably reflects the band’s melodic craft and diversity in the shape of ‘Watching The World Burn’. Shifting again, ‘Waiting At The Gates’ is a sturdy piece of metalcore that blasts right out from your speakers.
Having recently played a collection of profile shows throughout the South and beyond, racking up supports with We Are The Ocean, My Passion, Never Means Maybe, Heights, and The Eyes Of A Traitor in passing, The City Divided are ready to strike out on their own!
