We are pleased to welcome Belgium post-hardcore/emo band, Feverchild to Sunday Drive Records. Feverchild's S/T EP sounds like it came out in the mid–late '90s, during the boom of post-hardcore and emo bands. As common as this phrase is, rarely does it accurately describe new music, it's sort of an easy, go-to reference, but that's not the case for Feverchild. Their record literally sounds like it came out in the '90s and you probably wouldn't be able to tell otherwise. Once you look a little more into the band though, it begins to make sense how the bands perfectly captured this era.
Many members of Feverchild came from other Belgium hardcore bands, like Minded Fury, Force, and Animal Club, plus the EP was recorded by Oathbreaker's, Gilles Demolder. With this foundation in hardcore—like most bands of that era (Texas Is The Reason, Far Apart, Sunny Day Real Estate, etc.)—and a strong love for the genre, Feverchild has written an EP full of clean/heavy guitars and catchy vocal melodies that easily get stuck in your head. The journey from the opening track, 'Stargazing' to the closer, 'Be My Epilogue', is straightforward, moody, full of melody and is one that you'll want to repeat again and again.
Today, you can listen to their self-titled EP, Feverchild, and pre-order the cassette tape and shirts.
