Mile End240709

Originally formed in 2017 amongst high school friends, Canadian hardcore band Mile End have come into their own over the past few years. Signed to New Morality Zine, the band released a four song promo last year and now share their next single, “Bind.” Mile End take influence from from late 90s hardcore like Refused and Snapcase while still drawing in elements of modern hardcore. The resulting track is an all out frenzy, and the accompanying video packs the energy to match it. You can watch it HERE.

On writing the song, vocalist Jake Thompson shares:

“I was about to graduate but had zero life plans outside of this band. I’ve been told by relatives and teachers or anyone of authority that I need to have security in life and shouldn’t pursue music. I said to Davis Maxwell (who recorded the track) how I felt like all I knew was school and I felt like throughout my youth and young adult life that were given a rule book on what to do and no mistake would matter cause I got that rule book to follow and keep me in line and now that books come to an end when I graduate and I got no clue on what’s next. All I do know is I got this band and Im fucking stoked on it so I just gotta put my cards all in.”

Mile End is currently on tour in the U.S., full dates below. On July 18th, they’ll play the NMZ showcase, serving as a preshow for Chicago’s The Rumble festival, alongside labelmates Si Dios Quiere, Demo Division, Jinx, and Porcupine.

Mile End is Jake Thompson – Vocals, Alex Orenczuk – Guitar, Patrick Linardic – Drums, Brandon “Spider” Follett – Bass.
