UK post hardcore crew Light The Skies have just released their explosive new
EP Human and it’s an absolute beast.

Sounding like the backwater cousins of Bring Me The Horizon, Don Broco and
August Burns Red, Light The Skies have engineered a style that unites hooky
choruses with expansive and inventive guitar work, and a muscular rhythm
section that will blow the roof off. The Midlanders have a genuinely unique

everywhere now.

Formed during their college days in 2013 and coming at you from Birmingham,
Light The Skies soon forged a sturdy bond and hit the live circuit. The

over you with stabbing riffs and a colossal refrain that will hang in the
air for eons. The record then presses on with the uplifting and catchy
Looking Back, before Ourselves shifts the mood with its acoustic flavouring
and texturing. The brilliant Distance closes the EP, balancing melodic hooks
with razor sharp riffery, as the cut draws proceedings to a fitting
conclusion. With a tour set to be announced for early 2017, the band are
sure to rise.
