Within 6 months of making their live debut, they were asked to open up for Korn in Gilford, New Hampshire (May 2009). The band performed to over 3000 people, and brought their intense live show with them to the biggest of stages. They were able to win over the crowd, as well as receiving recognition from Munky and Shane Gibson of Korn as well. Preceding that, their homemade demo received some attention from one of the largest indie labels in New England – 10ft Reach Records (div.
of Sling Slang Records). They struck a deal with them shortly after, and in July 2009 began recording their debut E.P, due out in late 2009. In August 2009, Fates Divide was named as one of the top finalists in the Hartford Advocate's Grand Band Slam competition under the Metal category, as well as receiving individual nominations for best guitarist and best drummer. The band has received critical acclaim by numerous internet webzines, as well as being in regular rotation on college radio stations and internet radio stations in Germany, France, Australia, and Canada.
The band has also received recognition from rock and roll royalty including Jason Bittner, drummer for Shadows Fall. The band is in the process of putting together their first full scale tour, and are keen on expanding their name outside of CT with the release of their debut E.P. After all, in a world where intensity lights the sky, breakdowns are a way of life, and the rhythm of double bass pumps your blood, Fates Divide are leading the charge into a brighter day in metal.
