Relentless Rises From the Land Down Under (Updated 9/27/13)
The Sydney-based hardcore outfit known as Relentless has been smoking hot since the 2006 release of their very first demo. Called one of Australia's hottest young bands, they have built a fan base that has stretched from the 'Land Down Under' and well into Southeast Asia and beyond.
The Australian label Dogfight Records signed the band to release their initial EP "Opposition To Control," in 2008. Word quickly began spreading about the talent of the foursome, and fans of hardcore clamored for more from the group. In 2010, Relentless released their debut full-length album called "Set In Stone." The project featured 11 tracks of the band's aggressive, in-your-face style and served to reaffirm their reputation as one of Australia's newest rising stars.
It wasn't long before word of the band spread internationally, and they played Hamtown Smackdown in Hamilton, New Zealand and later headlined a three-week tour of Southeast Asia, including Thailand, the Phillipines, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.
Relentless opened for the band Trapped Under Ice during their Australian tour, then decided to return to the studio to record their sophomore album. The band enlisted the help of producer Nick Jett (Terror, Piece By Piece) to track and mix the final product. Relentless also had an extensive touring schedule planned in 2013, including a return to Asia and dates in the U.S. and Europe.
The current tour involves supporting acts Deez Nuts, Stray From the Path, Obey the Brave and Heart in Hand.
