Coventry mob Scream Blue Murder have been kicking around since 2014 and were quickly picked up by Stay Sick Recordings thanks to their unique take on metalcore that haunts and hits hard. Their debut album ‘Hollow Stories’ has taken the band to the States and back but the new chapter starts now with sophomore record ‘Rock Bottom’.
Talking ahead of the release of the new album, frontman Aaron Bloomer said “We are so excited to show everybody what we have been working on for the past year! This album really shows the direction the band is going. We can’t wait to see your faces screaming it back at us on the road later this year.”
