THE SURVIVAL CODE are preparing for the eagerly anticipated release of their sophomore album, Hopelessness Of People, which arrives on Friday 31st August, through Good Deeds Music Ltd. Prior to the album the band release powerhouse single ‘Crawl” on Friday July 27th. 

THE SURVIVAL CODE are a highly impressive rock duo now based in London, with a front-man from Dublin. Combining passion, outstanding musicianship, and raucous live performances, the twosome deliver concise burly rock cuts that strike and ignite your senses. The band have garnered support from many industry tastemakers, picking up coverage from Rock Sound Magazine, as well as firm radio support from Kerrang! Radio and Planet Rock.

Working with producer Matt Hyde (Trivium, Slipknot, Ash), THE SURVIVAL CODE released their debut album, MMXV, in 2015, and to much acclaim, with Vulture Hound citing it as an: “Astonishingly tight, realised and mature debut”. Three singles were plucked from the record, with the track, Living a Lie, stimulating the greatest visibility for the band. 2017’s Broken Strings EP followed, and this release marked a significant shift in the duo’s trajectory. The first single of the same name received heavy radio rotation on Planet Rock and Kerrang!, along with increased interviews and exposure leading to the band playing Camden Rocks.

Trimming from a trio to a two-piece, Gary and Tom opted for the less is more approach for their 2nd album. The pair have always been the nucleus of the band, and a renewed focus and direction helped the twosome to channel their full attention to crafting the best album possible. The fresh approach certainly worked, and produced once more by Matt Hyde, Hopelessness Of People is a direct, stout statement packed with groove, dynamics and killer hooks. The first single, Not Working , with its powerful riffs and highly engaging songwriting, is a firm indication of what to expect from the new record. Their new single, Crawl, is out July 27th.
