With a shared passion for hardcore, the lads combined their “party attitudes” with their hard-work sensibilities and began creating music as one. A year after they began, the band released their first single “Trials”, gaining a following of thousands worldwide. Subsequently, in November of 2011, they were voted favorite YouTube UK Metal Act by a landslide, winning a spotlight feature on the site’s homepage. As newcomers to the scene with an already extensive fan base, CONTINENTS was an obvious addition to Europe’s biggest indoor metal and hardcore festival Ghostfest in June of 2012.
Playing alongside established bands including THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, DEFEATER, EMMURE and COMEBACK KID, it was clear that they were able to rise to the occasion. Drawing in thousands of rowdy fans, CONTINENTS had become a household name across the United Kingdom in only one year. Slowly, crowds’ and critics’ headbanging turned into nods of agreement; CONTINENTS has earned their spot as one of the best new UK hardcore acts of 2012. Their go-getter attitudes and natural ability to create hardcore music that breaks new grounds caught the attention of Victory Records, quick to add the band to their already impressive roster.
Known for their rapid pace, CONTINENTS is excited to release their new album Idle Hands on January 22nd, 2013. Described as “some of the heaviest material they have ever produced”, expect raw, hard-hitting breakdowns accompanied by an intense urge to jump into a mosh pit and hang from the rafters. With their fresh take on hardcore CONTINENTS have arrived, amps in hand, to do the Queen proud.
