Syren City express a sound that takes from edgy alt-rock pitched with boundary challenging concepts. With an affection for Taking Back Sunday and Alter Bridge, through to Refused and My Chemical Romance, the angular alternative crew cunningly bond genres, and in doing so, have crafted something that is inventive, progressive and cinematic. The band step up with their new video for 10,000 Knives, which can be viewed at https://youtu.be/I39nne7xTfU . The cut is lifted from their current EP Paradise In The Dirt, out everywhere now.
Reared in Bristol and born in 2011, Syren City have hit the nation with a cluster of devastating live shows. During this time, the band have performed at many renowned festivals including Hit the Deck, opening for the likes of Brand New, Cancer Bats, Skindred, Don Broco and Frank Iero, and have supported everyone from The Hell, Roam, Black Foxxes, Max Raptor and Turbowolf to Mallory Knox, and have also sold out a series of headline shows.
The quintet’s ‘Escape’ EP landed in 2014 and picked up killer reviews and coverage from an array of printed magazines and websites; Rock Sound featured the band, placing a track on the cover CD, and glowing praise poured in from Metal Hammer, Powerplay Magazine, Punktastic, Stencil Mag, louderthanwar and Hit the Floor. The sassy hardcore crew have also notched up coveted radio play from Xfm and BBC Introducing.
Now, backed by an army of followers, Syren City will cast the net out again with the release of their stunning new EP ‘Paradise In The Dirt’, which is part of a series of EPs that all have a conceptual thread and link. The South West rocksters have really pulled it out of the bag with this one.

The video promises to light up TV screens right throughout the Summer months.
