• wounds Die Young (CD, £9.95)

    label: In At the Deep End

    Not many bands have been through as much as Wounds in the last 2 years. From the highs of rave reviews for their debut EP, to the lows of grief and a near death experience of one of their members, since 2010 the punk rockers have fitted in a lifetime. 2010 began with a bang for Wounds, supporting the likes of Gallows & Cancer Bats to name but a few. Shortly after Wounds' first UK tour came the release of their lauded debut EP 'Dead, Dead Fucking Dead' which secured acclaimed reviews from Kerrang (4 Ks) and Rock Sound (8/10) including a tour with Crime In Stereo & Sharks. The boys seemed set to grab the music world by the balls when disaster struck. As they settled down to write their debut album, guitarist James was almost killed when he plunged from a fourth floor balcony in a freak accident. James miraculously survived the traumatic fall. After heartache and dark times for all the band members they finished what they had started and completed their debut with lyrics inspired by the events that shaped the band into what they are now. The record, titled 'Die Young' (which also features the image of James's stomach from his accident as the album cover) was picked up by In At The Deep End Records. The band have since toured with Bring Me The Horizon and While She Sleeps to critical acclaim. On November 1st the band released the video from their latest track 'No Future' taking off their anticipated debut album. What does not kill you makes you stronger and Wounds know that more than most... "Menacing, volatile, and thrilling angular punk sounds - Breathtaking Stuff " KKKK KERRANG "Rock Sound is entirely in love with the exhilarating noise created by this Dublin punk quintet - more please" 8/10 ROCK SOUND
