The band have also announced a new guitarist in Mikey G from Oxford metal 5-piece A Trust Unclean. On joining the band, Mikey says; “I’m really excited to be joining my friends in Exist Immortal as their new guitarist. I’ve been standing in for a couple of months now and we’ve decided to take it to the next step and make it official. It’s always nice when everything just slots in easily on both a musical and personal level. The guys are brilliant to work with and we’ve already been throwing a few ideas around and getting excited about writing some music together.”
The band are also excited to welcome Mikey to the lineup, saying; “Bringing Mikey into the fold has been a real natural progression, both musically and practically. We are really excited to play all over the place in the next few months with this new line up, along with starting to write our next release.”
Breathe has gone on to receive high praise from media and fans alike. Metal Hammer described the tracks as “songwriting clarity and melodic strength of brutish proportions”with Terrorizer labelling the album as “songwriting as its best”.
The past year has seen the band work tirelessly, expanding their reach and building a solid, dedicated following. They’ve taken to the stage at Euroblast Festival and embarked on a UK headline tour, seeing the real fruits of their labour at the final show in London, where the band comprehensively sold out Camden’s Black Heart.
With the successful release of Breathe, 2016 proved to be a defining year for one of the country’s most exciting young metal acts, with 2017 promising even more.
