Hailing from the London suburbs of St.
Albans, Your Demise draw inspiration from bands like Sick of It All, Agnostic Front, and Hatebreed for their aggressive, metal-laden brand of hardcore. Founded in 2003, originally as a Suicidal Tendencies cover band, the quintet quickly took the leap to writing its own material, and after debuting in 2005 with the Your Days are Numbered EP, recorded its first full-length, You Only Make Us Stronger, the very next year. Meanwhile, Your Demise were building their fan base on the road by touring with bands like Biohazard, Bury Your Dead, and Enter Shikari, so after another independent EP -- 2008's Blood Stays on the Blade -- vocalist George Noble, guitarists Stuart Paice and Oz, bassist Jimmy Sampson, and drummer James Tailby inked a deal with Visible Noise for the release of their second LP, Ignorance Never Dies. This was released to widespread critical acclaim in March of 2009 (later being licensed in the U.S. by Earache) and the band set off on a three-week jaunt across Europe and Britain with Deez Nuts, More Than Life, and Lower Than Atlantis. But sadly, vocalist Noble chose to quit Your Demise that July, citing personal reasons, thus leaving the group to soldier on with former Centurion frontman Ed McRae as his replacement, beginning with a fall tour alongside Canadian band Misery Signals. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia
