Canada’s metalcore band Obey The Brave have officially signed to Epitaph Records with plans to release their album, Young Blood on August 27.
In anticipation of the new record, the band have posted a video about the recent signing and have also posted an in-your-face video for their first track, “Get Real” (feat. Terror’s Scott Vogel) that you can check out right here:
Vocalist Alex Erian:
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. 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!
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.
Check out the signing video below:
