London metalcore quintet COUNTING DAYS will release their debut album Liberated Soundson October 16, 2015 via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group (Volbeat, Shaman’s Harvest, Black Label Society, Gojira, Joe Bonamassa). Today, the band has unleashed a brand new track from the album, entitled “Burned by Faith”. Listen to the track now via Loudwire’s exclusive worldwide premiere.
Guitarist Charlie Wilson comments about the track: ““Burned By Faith” is one of our favorite and heaviest tracks from our new record. Lyrically it is about crimes committed in the name of religions and simply questioning the existence of a god or high being.”
While online, check out the new music video for “Die Alone”, directed by Jordan Green and featuring the Parallax Orchestra on strings. Also, take a listen to a previously released track “Liberated Sounds” here.
COUNTING DAYS’ new album Liberated Sounds was produced by Fredrik Nordstrom (At The Gates, Arch Enemy, In Flames, Opeth, Architects, Bring Me the Horizon) at his Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden, and is now available for pre-order via the band’s official website.
In the coming weeks, COUNTING DAYS will release more tracks and other multimedia exclusives. Stay tuned!
About COUNTING DAYS:
Formed in 2014, COUNTING DAYS entwine a complex and ferocious blend of hardcore punk, thrash and British heavy metal which has already marked them out as one of the most exciting and talked about metalcore acts in Britain. Made up of former members of TRC, Heights, Rough Hands and Last Witness, they harness the power of their previous bands and bring it to an exhilarating new level.
As the beating heart and song-writing partnership in TRC, Charlie Wilson (Guitar) along with Lasselle Lewis (Drums) began broadening and pushing their boundaries as Charlie explains; “I had some songs that I had been writing that didn’t quite fit with the band so I sent them over to Lasselle to see what he thought and he was blown away and totally into it.”
The band started to cement with the addition of former Heights frontman Thomas Debaere, whose throat shredding growl earmarked him as one of the new generation of formidable British metal vocalist. Bobby Daniels (Guitar) of Last Witness soon followed and the final piece was added during a TRC tour with South London noise-terrorists Rough Hands, where frontman Alex Dench was then recruited for bass and vocal duties.
“Quite simply, COUNTING DAYS are the most exciting metal band to come from the UK since Bullet For My Valentine.” – Terry Bezer, Team Rock
“They are already shaping up to be one of the brightest emerging talents we have seen for a very long time. Do not sleep on them, you will regret it.” – Tom Doyle, Kerrang
