Thirty Nights of Violence hail from the same Nashville metalcore scene as Chamber and Orthodox, they're named after a Deftones lyric, and they cite late '90s metalcore influences like Botch, Poison The Well, and Converge, all of which you can hear in their sound. They deservingly stirred up buzz for their 2018 debut EP To Die In Your Portrait, and as mentioned, they're set to follow it with their sophomore EP You'll See Me Up There this Friday (6/26) via Unbeaten Records (pre-order).

Their debut EP was nothing to scoff at, but its sharper, crisper followup is even better. It's bludgeoning and in-your-face with a few tech-y parts here and a few melodic parts there, and it does a ton of justice to the band's influences without sounding like revivalism. This is truly a case of a band looking to the past to shape the future.

"I’m overjoyed that everyone can hear You’ll See Me Up There," says vocalist Zach Wilbourn. "It’s a big creative step for us and I couldn’t be happier with it. Thank you so much for taking the time to check it out." Guitarist/vocalist Kelly Cook adds, "I am very proud of all the work we put into it and all the minds that came together to make this record possible. From the bottom of my heart, thank you."

The EP officially comes out Friday, but a full stream premieres right here:
