Hailing from Cork, Following The Signs announce ‘Conflictions’, their debut studio album (due for release on June 30th), and first single ‘This Day Is Mine’ on June 1st. Find out more below…

Featuring twelve blistering tracks, ‘Conflictions’ showcases the intense brutality that Following the Signs are capable of creating, alongside groove-based anthems loaded with HEFT!

Speaking of the new album, the band says; “Conflictions is full of a modern groove and metal-core combined with all of us finding our inspiration from our influences individually and bringing  it all together to create our own sound. 

Every member of the band has different influences, which brings a lot of richness to our sound. Dan’s vocal influences are mainly WhiteChapel, Linkin Park, and Motionless in White.

Regarding the guitars, Noel and Vinny’s main influences are Slipknot, Deftones and Sepultura, and Lamb of GodFinally, Rory, who plays finger style bass, it’s more Sepultura, Black Sabbath and Korn.”

The band have lined up the first single, ‘This Day Is Mine‘ for release on June 1st, so keep your eyes (and ears) on the bands official socials for more details. Pre-save link for the track can be found here.

Following The Signs are a Metalcore band from Cork city, Ireland
The band line up consists of Dan Hayes (Vocals), Noel Crowley and Vincent Renoux (Guitars), and Rory Taylor (bass).

Following the Signs was formed in Cork City, Ireland in 2017 by Dan Hayes, Noel Crowley and Rory Taylor. Their debut EP, ‘Far From Over‘ made a significant dent on the Irish Metal upon its release in 2019.

When Covid happened, the band had to go on a break to write new material. The band focussed on getting new inspirations to write new songs.

At the end of lockdown, the search for a second guitarist saw the addition of  Vincent Renoux who became a full time member in Spring of 2021. Since then, Following The Signs have been working hard to combine groovy rhythms mixed with heavy/melodic vocals to create their own unique sound of Metalcore.

After writing more than a dozen songs, Following the Signs recorded a 12 tracks album at JSR Studios in Belfast, and the results are ‘Conflictions‘, which will be available on June 30th.
