OUR FINAL HOUR to release ‘The Moving House’, on 24th June‏

Our Final Hour Online Promo Shot

our final hour to unleash their bonecrushing new EP

Hailing from the shores of the Isle of Man, the industrious five-some draw from a glut of areas from the power of ‘Defeater’ to the ferocious energy of ‘Stick To Your Guns’ and ‘Pianos Become Teeth’. By harnessing these influences, yet unmistakably etching their own unique signature on their undertaking, the band have produced a sound that intelligently merges Hardcore, Metal, and Punk to powerful effect
The beginnings of the band were formed in 2008, and as is the case with many musicians, the pathway to the upper ranks of the music scene was not a smooth one. The band’s route has had its fair share of broken friendships, musical differences, line-up changes, and also a slew of financial difficulties. However, after a progressive five years, the resilient quintet have solidified personnel, relentlessly toured throughout the UK & Europe, and have built an impressive underground following by releasing two blistering EPs.
Our Final Hour now charge forward with the official release of their third EP ‘The Moving House’. Spitting out six tracks of venomous hardcore, the EP is laden with brawly riffs and enticing beats, and is driven by ferocious passion and true belief. From the visceral guitar swirls and pounding riffage of the opener ‘Four Years’ to the infectiously stomping beatings of their forthcoming video single ‘Autumn Breeze’, and on to the dynamic and snarling grit of ‘#LSBC’, it’s abundantly clear that Our Final Hour are extremely well drilled in the art of delivering a hell of a biting hardcore tune. This is backed even more so with the closing tracks to the EP where ‘Evergreen’ takes the listener down a weaving doom-laden corridor to hell and back, before the EP’s namesake, ‘The Moving House’, completes the record majestically with its stocky beats and atmospheric guile, not to mention, it’s colossal refrain.

What The Night Brings to release their new EP ‘Bound By Apathy’ on 9th April 2012

What The Night Brings unleash their collosal new breathtaking EP ‘Bound By Apathy’, on 9th April 2012 through all online stores.

Spawned from the depths of Buckinghamshire, What The Night Brings draw from a cluster of musical influences from old guard luminaries such as Pantera and Machine Head, to regarded contemporaries as Norma Jean and Architects, right through to more melodic artists like Minus The Bear. By harnessing these influences, yet unmistakably etching their own unique signature on their undertaking, the band have crafted a sound that intelligently merges Hardcore, Metal and Math to devastating effect.

Ever since their incarnation in 2008, What The Night Brings have always pushed the envelope, from their work ethic through to their creative endeavours. The industrious unit have widely toured throughout England and Wales, sharing stages with everyone from Protest the Hero, Your Demise, and Lower Than Atlantis to Devil Sold His Soul and The Eyes of a Traitor, and in the process opened for several sold-out London shows. Besides a noteworthy affection for and commitment to touring through the country’s highways and byways, What The Night Brings have also amassed critical acclaim and lofty support from Metal Hammer, Kerrang!, and PowerPlay Magazine, as well as notched up widespread radio airplay from Total Rock Radio. The band have also racked up impressive sales spanning as far as America and even theFar East. At the tail-end of 2010, the band had the honour of receiving a request from Metal Hammer to add a track to their October cover CD; WTNB duly obliged by adding the fantastically vicious cut ‘Sewn Shut’ to the compilation.

What The Night Brings now move forward again with the official release of their new EP ‘Bound By Apathy’. Spitting out four tracks of venomous metallic hardcore, the EP is laden with mighty riffs and enticing beats and is fuelled by ferocious passion and true belief. What The Night Brings are quickly picking up fierce velocity and there’s no question why.

TRACKLISTING: 1. Barren; 2. Deus Ex-Machina; 3. The March That Makes A Man; 4. Front Towards Enemy,
