Sadly, we have to say goodbye but parting is such sweet sorrow ...
Technical and aggressive, intense yet melodic, THE FEAR (formerly Death Defying Life) mashed old-school power and new-school technique with a pure and undying love of punk and hardcore.
A razor sharp show defined them as one of the strongest and most creative melodic hardcore UK bands and this was a York band that really got out on the road and brought their music to people.
Criss-crossing the USA with Fat Wreck Chords bands, and Europe with MXPX and Zebrahead in the United Kingdom, not to mention their own Lockjaw release jaunts and touring with skatepunk legends Belvedere in 2013.
To ‘pass the time’ between major tours, the band played a torrent of UK festivals and shows alongside Strung Out, A Wilhelm Scream, INME, Capdown, This Is A Standoff, Mute, Random Hand, Sonic Boom Six, Fandangle, 4ft Fingers, Fireapple Red, Captain Everything, Glamour Of The Kill, and many many more.
Come down, take the roof off, and say goodbye to one of York's best ever bands!
