Hard Drive Agency Presents REPRIEVER “Grim” New South Wales Regional Tour. Crashing into 2021 with the full force of a sledgehammer after releasing their blistering new single “Grim“, Sydney based Prog-Metalcore dynamos REPRIEVER are set to take this visceral sonic onslaught on the road with Canberra’s Metal Sensations Deathbeds. Check out the “Grim” single visualizer below:
After signing a worldwide management deal with Australia’s premier alternative artist management agency Hard Drive Agency, REPRIEVER have been working tirelessly on new music. “Grim“, being the first of many ferocious installments to come, is a merciless and impactful track that stands as a powerful follow-up to the cult success of the quintet’s debut EP Idle Minds and a testament to the band’s mission to push core to its upper limits and beyond. In “Grim“, REPRIEVER dive headfirst into the depths of domestic violence that keeps families locked in their vicious cycles, underpinned by the band’s own personal accounts of suffering. “Grim” conveys a vital message: that internal healing must be sought, lest you risk becoming the very thing that once kept you up at night.
Vocalist Joshua Stewart comments on the upcoming tour “We first started writing Grim a few months after I joined the band towards the end of 2019, at the time we were all dealing with a lot in our personal lives, even without bringing COVID into the conversation. That energy and the subject matter of the song fed off of some of the things I was struggling with at the time. One of these things was trying to take in my 14 year old brother, to try and break the cycle of the topics discussed in ‘Grim‘, and to get him onto a better path in life. These attempts were met with pushback and verbal abuse, and this distress became pretty palpable in the song itself. We are really looking forward to taking it back onto the road after so long – we’re all in different places now and a lot has happened since we wrapped up on ‘Grim’. This is the start of a new era for REPRIEVER and fans can expect some of our back catalogue to make their final appearances on this run”
REPRIEVER offers a resolutely unified rhythm section, technical lead guitar earworms and bombastic bass & drum grooves which is exactly what you can expect from their relentless and high-energy live shows. In addition to Deathbeds, this fast-paced Prog-Metal Quintet will be accompanied by Sydney’s Post-Metalcore Outfit Brave Today and Newcastle’s Alternative Punk Quartet Linear.
