Reigning in the influential powers of Underoath, Nine Inch Nails, Funeral For A Friend and Every Time I Die, MODERN ERROR produce heavy magnetic rhythms, contagious hooks and buoyant energy that will leave you dead on your feet. The high-flying post hardcore crew release their new single, Blackout Poetry, on Friday March 2nd, and embark on a tour with Loathe and Holding Absence.
Although the quintet were only formed last year, they have quickly solidified a sound that is ripe for worldwide consumption. The band’s debut single, Buried And Blue, indeed sparks strong interest and helped to land the emerging five-some a forthcoming run of shows with rising post-hardcorers, Loathe and Holding Absence.
To run with the tour, MODERN ERROR drop a new A-sided single, Blackout Poetry, with the B-side to follow in April. Vocalist Zak comments about the single: “The song ‘Blackout Poetry’ follows the idea of not feeling yourself. Of slipping into the feeling that you cannot be yourself anymore. And rather than living, you’re just existing. This song is for anyone who can relate”.
The track is a perfect snap-shot of the band. It’s indeed loaded with intensity, rampant energy, thoughtful dynamism. It also has an infectious refrain that will leave your head swimming in the track long after its over.
