Canada’s most exciting, adrenaline-charged metalcore band OBEY THE BRAVE have officially signed to Epitaph Records and Distort Entertainment with plans to release their album, “Young Blood” on August 28th.
The label commented:
“I remember listening to my Pennywise and Rancid cassettes back in high school and daydreaming endlessly about being in a band and touring the world,” says lead vocalist Alex Erian. “If someone would have told me back then that I’d sign one day with the label that started it all, I would have never believed it. It feels unreal but my boys in OTB and I are definitely up to the challenge. We’re extremely honored to now be part of the Epitaph family and are looking forward to many years of pure fucking destruction together!”
“Distort is known for its quality artists and killer track record here in Canada, but at the end of the day, what really caught our attention was how much the people behind the label genuinely care about their artists,” continues Erian. “We couldn’t ask for a better label to represent us in our homeland. We’re so excited to join the Distort family!”
Originating from Montreal and Ottawa, Canada, Obey The Brave is vocalist Alex Erian (ex-Despised Icon), bassist Miguel Lepage, guitarist John Campbell, guitarist Greg Wood and drummer Stevie Morotti. Fueled by passion and a strong DIY ethic, Obey The Brave formed in January 2012 and gained over 14,000 Facebook fans in their first two weeks of existence, all without releasing a single song. Armed with a music video for “Get Real” and a few more tricks up their sleeve, the OTB army is gearing up for a killer year.
