Rising Irish Alt/Modern Metal crew, WORDS THAT BURN, will be taking to Bloodstock’s ‘New Blood’ Stage on Sunday, August 15th, for their debut UK performance. Stage time TBC.

Fusing a crushing blend of modern post-metalcore, peppered with ’90s alternative influences, WORDS THAT BURN have established themselves as one of Ireland’s leading heavy artists from the countries flourishing underground scene.

Imagine a unique hybrid of Korn, Architects, Parkway Drive, with some Faith No More thrown in, and you’ll be somewhere in the vicinity of the bands’ evolving sound. Never ones to conform to any particular genre, WTB create brain-hacking melodies, with heart-soaring choruses, that suddenly plunge into galloping, frenzied riffing, designed to spike adrenalin, and push boundaries.

With a discography that totals two full-length studio albums, ‘Regret is for the Dead’ [2010], and ‘Pyres’ [2019] the bands’ sound continues to evolve with their yet-to-be titled new album, produced by Josh Schroeder [King 810, Of Virtue, Lorna Shore], which will be released early 2022.

To mark their performance at this years’ Bloodstock Festival, a preview single from the new album, ‘Den of Lions,’ can be accessed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6J7bfePct0

Sophomore album ‘PYRES’ was released Summer of 2019 entering the official Irish
mainstream iTunes charts at number 9, before landing a number 1 slot,  before a number of live shows, which included dates with Alien Weaponry, and Beartooth. The album produced three singles, ‘Arise’, ‘Riptide’, and ‘Deathgrip’, which featured on Kerrang! Radio, as well as Metal Hammer, saying of the album: “‘PYRES’ has the heft of Parkway Drive, while elsewhere huge choruses evoke modern-day Bing Me the Horizon.”

Please consider the new single ‘Den of Lions’ for your playlist, podcast, radio show, reviews or feature articles.


WORDS THAT BURN will be available for interview at Bloodstock, from Saturday August 14th and Sunday, August 15th. Please get in contact to book a time slot using the below contacts:
