Biography

For years, the United Kingdom has provided the hardcore scene with quality acts including Bring Me The Horizon, Gallows, Architects, and Asking Alexandria to name a few. Following suit, five friends from South Wales formed a metal band, unaware of how quickly their talent would be discovered. It did not take long for their ruthless, cutthroat style to attract fans the world over, solidifying their after-school hobby as what it actually was – CONTINENTS, UK’s premiere hardcore band, set to blow our Yankee windows clear off their hinges.

Formed in 2010, CONTINENTS lineup boasts powerhouse vocalist Phil Cross, technical guitarists Darryl Sweet and Tom Weaver, heavy hitter Duncan “Ken” Hamill on drums and bassist Dom Turner. With a shared passion for hardcore, the lads combined their “party attitudes” with their hard-work sensibilities and began creating music as one. A year after they began, the band released their first single “Trials”, gaining a following of thousands worldwide. Subsequently, in November of 2011, they were voted favorite YouTube UK Metal Act by a landslide, winning a spotlight feature on the site’s homepage.

As newcomers to the scene with an already extensive fan base, CONTINENTS was an obvious addition to Europe’s biggest indoor metal and hardcore festival Ghostfest in June of 2012. Playing alongside established bands including THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, DEFEATER, EMMURE and COMEBACK KID, it was clear that they were able to rise to the occasion. Drawing in thousands of rowdy fans, CONTINENTS had become a household name across the United Kingdom in only one year.
