Formed in 2009, Heart of a Coward have been on a steady incline since their inception. Now a house hold name in UK metalcore music, 2012 saw the release of their debut album ‘Hope and Hindrance’ and their debut video for ‘Shade’. Propelled into the spotlight by these early successes, the follow up album ‘Severance’ saw the band gain further popularity with singles ‘Deadweight’ and ‘Distance’. The band had clearly carved their unique twist of brutal heaviness, epic soundscapes and haunting melodies.
The third album released, ‘Deliverance’, featured the impressive single ‘Hollow’. This single showcased the bands capability for writing modern metal anthems and forging a strong connection with their audience. Renowned for their powerful and engaging live performances, Heart of a Coward have toured internationally, with bands such as Machine Head, Thy Art Is Murder, Sikth and Trivium.
This year (2019) will see the band appear at Download for the third time, previously playing in 2013 and 2015. We will also see the release of the bands eagerly awaited fourth album in 2019. Early released track ‘Collapse’ has already accomplished millions of streams – highlighting that album four is certainly not one to be missed.
