SCARRED BY BEAUTY from Copenhagen, Denmark is in so many ways your quintessential DIY-hardcore band. The 5 friends book their own tours (large ones at that!), do their own artwork, record and mix their own albums and have set up their overly efficient business model all by themselves.
All this in order to do what they do best and love the most – to travel the world and play music. It’s really quite admirable considering what the band has actually achieved since their incarnation dating no further back than the year 2006. Now they’re launching their sophomore monster of an album, “Cape Zero”, upon the world and set out to tour as heavy as they have ever done before.
“Cape Zero” is a testament of the band’s capabilities and a clear definition of their relentless and ruthless work ethics. The music reveals a matured band now fully aware of their sound and hardcore roots, making the album stand out to the predecessors – the “We Swim” EP from 2009 (which awarded them ‘Talent of the Year at the Danish Metal Awards) and their debut album “Sutra” from 2011. The style is full frontal hardcore but with undeniable technical skills and a superb flair for melodic hooks, riffing and dynamics. They’re claiming genre independency simply due to the fact that the 5 piece are all contributing equally and individually - and it shows perfectly in each and every of the 11 songs. It’s remarkably varied and diverse but nicely coherent and whole while the lyrical subjects and cover artwork tie the frustration, fears and desolation together.
“Cape Zero” will be put out worldwide in September through German based Redfield Records handling all digital platforms and Danish vinyl connoisseurs Screaming Records issuing the heavy weight deluxe vinyl edition.
SCARRED BY BEAUTY has toured Europe and the UK several times and supported internationally acclaimed artists such as The Black Dahlia Murder, I Killed the Prom Queen, For the Fallen Dreams, Gojira and Meshuggah. In 2011 alone the band completed three European tours, one Danish tour, and in 2012 they, besides touring Europe and UK for two months, made it all the way to China playing a highly successful spot at the Shanghai MIDI Festival. The band also appeared as headlining act on the annual MTV Headbangers Ball Tour across Denmark in 2012.
As of now the band is ready for their planned tour activities of 2013 which includes festivals in Europe in June-July, two European tours in the fall and a tour of South East Asia.
The release of “Cape Zero” along with the band’s intensive touring will, undoubtedly, prove that SCARRED BY BEAUTY belongs amongst the International hardcore elite.
