“100 Bands You Need To Know 2015” – Alternative Press
Victory Records is proud to usher in the new leaders of melodic hardcore, CONVEYER. The band has laid a solid foundation over the last few years through numerous self-booked, successful North American tours and a self-released debut album, Worn Out. As the newest addition to the Victory Records family, CONVEYER prepares to build on their devoted and faithful following with their sophomore release, When Given Time To Grow, set to be released September 4th, 2015. Get a taste of the new album with the new song “Haven.”
Hailing from Minneapolis, MN, CONVEYER’s devotion to music and faith is the common thread that connected its members – Danny Adams (Vocals), Ty Brooks (Guitar), Nick Matako (Guitar), Ben Greene (Bass), and Daniel Glover (Drums).
Frontman Danny Adams says of the signing, “Realizing Victory was on board with CONVEYER and wanted to help us do more was a surreal experience. When I was thirteen or fourteen, my mom signed up for a Victory sampler, and it got me into bands like Atreyu, Bayside, Silverstein and eventually The Warriors and Refused. A majority of the bands that got me into going to shows and participating in a local hardcore/metal scene were putting out records through Victory before I even knew what music I liked.”
“To be a part of a label that is responsible for releasing some of my favorite records of all time is a dream come true. We are honored to be a part of the Victory Records family,” adds guitarist Ty Brooks.
On the background of “Haven”, Adams explains, “It’s basically me expressing my disinterest in the immoral composition of the status quo on a worldwide scale, and Christ being the only antithesis to the mindset the world conditions us to live under. I don’t think there’s a simple way for me to coalesce the entire point of the song, which is why I encourage people to come ask questions at shows or online.”
CONVEYER will hit the road this weekend on July 4th, appearing at several festivals such as Audiofeed, Ichthus, Sonshine and Pierced. Stay tuned for more album and tour news on CONVEYER.
