Canadian metalcore band Obey The Brave have signed with Epitaph Records for their debut album ‘Young Blood’.
Epitaph is the home of pioneers Pennywise, Social Distortion and Rancid. Bad Religion’s Brett Gurewitz founded the label in 1980.
Obey The Brave are as new as a band can be. They formed on January. 2012. The band features vocalist Alex Erian (ex-Despised Icon), bassist Miguel Lepage, guitarist John Campbell, guitarist Greg Wood and drummer Stevie Morotti.
“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!”
‘Young Blood’ will be released in August.
