Since releasing their debut single, “With False Hope” in late 2017, WORN OUT have made a significant dent in the Irish hardcore & metal community – thanks to their intense & often unpredictable live shows, contrasting piledriving brutality with frenetic energy.
Following their well-received singles “Circle the Drain” & “No Truth”, the four-piece honed their sound on stages around the country, combining a broad range of influences; clashing melody, dissonance & heavy rhythms with a scathing vocal delivery.
This culminated in their debut EP “WASTE”, which was released to critical acclaim in December 2021. It received an 8/10 from Distorted Sound Magazine, 9/10 from Overdrive.ie and 10/10 from GBHBL, amongst others, as well as being described as having “menacing intensity” by Metalsucks. “WASTE” proves that WORN OUT are one of the most aggressive-sounding bands around at the moment.
2022 has been a productive year for the Cork band, with shows in the UK, as well as a tour with hardcore legends Cro-Mags. October 7th saw the release of their new single “Bridgeburner” ; featuring guest vocals from Justin Paul Hill of the UK tech-metal pioneers Sikth. WORN OUT show no signs of slowing down as they follow the release with an Irish headline tour, finishing with a main stage slot at the Siege of Limerick
