This week’s AMPED Artist of the week is up and coming U.K. rock/metal quintet, In Search Of Sun. The official video to the title track from the band’s recently released debut album, ‘The World Is Yours,’ can be viewed below.
Since releasing their debut EP, ‘A Breakdown Of Character’ under their original name, Driven, In Search Of Son have made significant headway in London’s underground scene. Now, following the release of ‘The World Is Yours,’ the band is taking both their sound and popularity to another level.
Comments the band: “The World Is Yours has been a while in the making, but it’s a big shift up for us in terms of direction and sound and we can’t wait to get out there and start playing these songs live. Expect an uplifting and hard-hitting journey through groove-ridden riffing and punching beats.”
‘The World Is Yours’ was produced by Phil Kinman at MTR Studios (Deadly Circus Fire, Tank, Paul Di’Anno) and mastered by Harry Hess at HBomb Mastering (Cancer Bats).
In Search Of Sun are a new band that are bursting onto the underground scene with an abundance of head bopping beats, epic choruses and ambient soundscapes.
Formerly known as Driven, this quintet have come a long way from their groove laden metalcore roots, and the progression from EP to Album marks a big step up in songwriting, production and maturity. The album itself is built upon a foundation that’s been in the making over the last 3 years, with the name change being the final piece of the puzzle in terms of crafting and sealing the band’s identity.
Since the bands inception, the boys have been creating a vicious racket on the live front having already shared stages with the likes of Knuckledust, Mortad, Painted Smiles, US metallers IKILLYA, Skreamer, Second Rate Angels, Stormbringer, Sacred Mother Tongue, Cypher 16, Cambion, The More I See (who handpicked them to open up at an Earache Records/Metropolis Music showcase in London) and ended last year as support to Absolva and Bloodstock favourites Evil Scarecrow. Following a high octane set at Hammerfest 2013 in North Wales, ISOS have played at sold out shows at The Borderline and Relentless Garage in London, and blown audiences away all over the country, blending a fine mix of infectious melodies, raw emotion and an intense interaction with their crowd, all recurring themes throughout their promising young live career. A 5 track EP, released in October 2012 entitled ‘A Breakdown of Character’ (released via iTunes/Amazon) saw the single “Uproar” get playlisted on Scuzz TV’s Nonstop Metal Playlist.
In Search Of Sun will be releasing their debut album on the 1st of September through Raging Demon Entertainment. With shows and tours pouring in, there will be ample opportunity to taste the fire that this 10 track beast of a record will have to offer. Production duties set to be handled by Phil Kinman (Deadly Circus Fire/Tank/Paul Di’Anno) and mastered by Harry Hess (Cancer Bats).
