SeeYouSpaceCowboy and If I Die First have announced they are teaming up to release a split EP, titled A Sure Disaster, out on 14th May 2021 via Pure Noise Records. Alongside this the bands have released joint single bloodstainedeyes, with a video to accompany the track.
SeeYouSpaceCowboy vocalist Connie Sgarbossa says of the EP: “We are happy to finally let this project surface, two bands, one group of friends. It was a lot of fun working with IIDF on this and putting this together, we both take influence from the same era of metalcore/post-hardcore but with us each having our own personal spin on it. so I hope it serves as an engaging listen.”
She continues: “When we first came up with the idea of doing this split I really wanted to do a collaborative song. It was something I couldn’t really cite many bands doing, if any, that came to my mind in this sub-genre. I wanted to take it farther than just featuring on each other’s tracks – a song that combined and took crucial elements of each band and made it something that represented both of us and was cohesive. So we are all got together and fucked my apartment up but wrote this song and recorded it and shot a music video and somehow made it work.”
“This became so much more than just a split for me. During such dark and uncertain times, it was hard to find a light to stay inspired, and this project sparked that. Getting together, feeding off each other’s energies, laughing, the whole process kept me sane. We wrote songs that I am extremely proud of and we also gained life long friends.” comments Zubin of If I Die First.
Whilst Nedarb from the band adds: “This split means a lot to me. It’s two bands that share the same passion and everyone’s energy vibes off each other perfectly. I hope everyone enjoys the project as much as we do.”
