Romanian Modern Metalcore band TAKING BACK AUGUST has released “Another Day To Live”, their latest single! The new song is built around corrosive, massive riffs, over which a volcanic rhythm is cleverly arranged. Alex Precup’s voice pierces your heart like a drill thanks to its dual nature: Heaven and Hell. The atmospheric synths enhance the sound of the song, giving it a special flavor and stirring up waves of emotions in you, the listener.
The band comments on the new single:
For each of us, the song symbolizes an episode in life that we had to face head-on without looking back. It presents a broader view of where we envision going in our style, with softer parts, more technically diverse synths, and alternating clean and screaming voices.
Modern Metalcore band Taking Back August hails from Bucharest, Romania. The band was formed in 2020 by musicians Alex Precup (vocals), Claudiu Ene (bass), George Motei (guitar), Alex Iliescu (guitar), and Moroianu Gabriel (drums).
Over the first two years of its existence, Taking Back August experienced and overcome many challenges, including participating in the Posada Rock and Metal Gates festivals. Alex Precup (vocals) competed and ranked second in the Superstar Romania 2021 competition!
The first single, “Welcome Home”, was released in October 2020 along with a lyric video. The song’s message, a well-crafted one, managed to overcome the barriers imposed by the listeners’ expectations. Following the release of the first single, the band began working hard on its first record, the EP “The Devil’s Crown” – released in September 2021.
Currently, the five members of the band are composing the songs to be featured on the first studio album, which will be released at the end of 2022.
