The Fear Bio:
Technical and aggressive, intense yet melodic, The Fear (formally named Death Defying Life) have emerged from the heart of Yorkshire.Drawing on a multitude of influences, blending old-school power and new-school technique with a love of the Punk/Hardcore scene. With their high energy, razor sharp live show, they’re definitely amongst the strongest and most creative melodic hardcore bands in the United Kingdom.
2004 took the band on a two week USA tour ( after 8 months of forming), supporting (Fat Wreck Chords) bands Western Addiction and Kill The Messenger.
In 2007 the band embarked on their first European tour opening 12 dates for American Pop Punkers MXPX and Zebrahead.
July 2011 saw their first European headline tour promoting a recently recorded 7 track EP “Heavy Hearts & Bloodshot Eyes”.
To “pass the time” between tours and recording The Fear have played a torrent of UK shows and festivals alongside Strung Out, A Wilhelm Scream, INME, Capdown, This Is A Standoff, Mute, Random Hand, Sonic Boom Six, Fandangle, 4ft Fingers, Fireapple Red, Captain Everything, Glamour Of The Kill, and many others.
The Fear head out to Europe again in April 2012 to promote their debut album which is scheduled for release when they return late spring.
