Reigning in the influential powers of Underoath, Nine Inch Nails, Funeral For A Friend and Every Time I Die, MODERN ERROR produce heavy magnetic rhythms, contagious hooks and buoyant energy that will leave you dead on your feet. The high-flying post hardcore crew have just dropped the video for Blackout Poetry and are about to set off on a tour with Loathe and Holding Absence.
Although the quintet were only formed last year, they have quickly solidified a sound that is ripe for worldwide consumption. Comprised of blood brothers, Zak and Kel Pinchin, handling the vocals and guitar/keys respectively, alongside long-standing friends Phil Moore on Guitar, Lewis Grant on Bass and Conor Nicholson the drums, MODERN ERROR are already starting to make their mark. The band’s debut single, Buried And Blue sparked strong interest and helped to land the emerging five-some a forthcoming run of shows with rising post-hardcorers, Loathe and Holding Absence.
To run with the tour, MODERN ERROR drop a new A-sided single, Blackout Poetry, with the B-side to follow in April. Vocalist Zak comments about the single: “The song ‘Blackout Poetry’ follows the idea of not feeling yourself, of slipping into the feeling that you cannot be yourself anymore, and rather than living, you’re just existing. This song is for anyone who can relate”. The track is a perfect snap-shot of the band, loaded with intensity, rampant energy, thoughtful dynamism and an infectious refrain that will leave your head swimming in the track long after its over.
MODERN ERROR play the following shows with LOATHE & HOLDING ABSENCE:
March 03 – Newcastle, Think Tank; March 06 – Nottingham, Bodega; March 07- Birmingham, Asylum; March 09 – Bournemouth, The Anvil; March 10 – Bridge End, Hobos.
