On January 14th, Reveille Records will be releasing This is Your Life’s debut full length album, Before We Fade Away on 12 inch vinyl. The pressing will be limited to 500 copies and feature three different color variants. Both the band and label will have exclusive colorways limited out of 100. Pre-orders for the vinyl will go live on December 14th on Reveille Records’ webstore.
This is Your Life has been making waves in the hardcore scene since they first cut their teeth on their Self-titled 7” in 2010. Their aptly named follow up, The Tour EP further cemented their status as an up-and-coming act to keep an eye on. When Before We Fade Away was released later that same year, they quickly became buzzworthly among critics, receiving a five star rating from Punknews.org and AbsolutePunk.net announcing it as, “one of the most impressive debuts of the year”.
But the praise wasn’t just pouring in from snobby critics, the fans thought it was just as fantastic. The album has an aggregated score of 3.9 (Excellent) on Sputnik Music and even hit #10 in Punknews‘ “Your Favorite Records from September” feature.
Before We Fade Away has been received so well because it hits that sweet spot right between punk and hardcore. That very same line that bands like Kid Dynamite, Comeback Kid, and Modern Life Is War proudly tread. Energy, emotion, and aggression runs deep on this record. A theme that is only magnified during their live sets. Having played over 100 shows and sharing the stage with such acts as: Tigers Jaw, A Wilhelm Scream, Caleb Lionheart, and Hold Tight! the boys in This is Your Life are well vetted road warriors.
