New guns ‘Beyond Dreams of Grandeur’ are primed to make their mark on the UK scene with their captivating blend of melodic hardcore.

Neatly bonding infectious melody-drenched choruses with upbeat guitar parts and jack hammer beats, BDoG release their rousing self-titled debut EP on 12th September through all digital stores and line-up UK shows in support.

Born in late 2009 from the backstreets of Birmingham, Beyond Dreams of Grandeur were birthed by old school friends Joe Morton (Vocals), Will Sanderson (Guitar/Vocals) and Chris Daccus (Bass), along with brothers Chris Green (Guitar/Vocals) and Jack Green (Drums). Ever since their formation, the post-hardcore quintet have carefully honed their sound, drawing inspiration from a range of sources, from the undeniably sheer song-writing brilliance of ‘The Beatles’, through to the angular Deathcore armoury of ‘The Black Dahlia Murder’. Throughout 2010 the band undertook numerous intense rehearsals and a plethora of fiery live shows, all in anticipation of laying down plans for their debut record.

The Midlanders entered the studio at the turn of the year to record tracks for their self-titled debut EP. Now fully armed with a killer record unfolding five ferocious cuts, from the muscular cascades and scatter-gun dynamic riffage of ‘Sobriquet’, to the stunningly anthemic ‘Dust Brings Shells’, the fivesome have created an EP that almost effortlessly showcases BDoG’s glide and full-hearted intent. The energetic emo-scamps will now raise the bar again as they prepare for a full-blown assault of the UK; look out for extensive tour dates soon to be announced for the remainder of the year!
