Introducing - From A City In Ruins

Born out of the depleted industrial area of Grimsby, Lincs, From A City In Ruins stride forward with their mouthwatering mix of razor sharp and dynamic Alt-Rock. Brimming with raw passion and boundless energy, the youthful upstarts continue their ascent with a cluster of UK shows . With a flurry of influences ranging from the edgy post-hardcore sounds of Refused through to the atmospherics and artsy cool of Joy Division and The Cure, From A City Ruins have amassed a riveting sound that is laced with innovate ideas, peppered with hooky riffs and perfectly complimented by jagged guitars and off-kilter phrasing.

The alt-rockers have locked their absorbing sound down to tape and it's ideally showcased on their d├ębut single "Fin! Fin! Fin!" which is also backed by the quite fantastical "Introverts". With a full length album in the works and further touring in the pipeline, everything is slipping into place for the northern upstarts.

From A City In Ruins have already racked up an impressive 200 plus shows during the past two years, including dates with the likes of General Fiasco, Flood Of Red, The Computers and This City, to name a few. With an increasing fanbase, further UK and European shows scheduled throughout 2011, with broad underground support already garnered, and having been touted by Rocksound Magazine as ones to watch, it's evident that this industrious quartet show no signs of letting up!

Next week track of the week is also by this band, keep an eye out for that too!
