RILE have technically been a band for a decade, but 2022 is looking like their breakout year. Originally a side-project, the Salt Lake City group is helmed by Cult Leader bassist Sam Richards, and like his other band, RILE play a form of gripping, serrated, slightly chaotic metalcore that recalls bands like Converge, Botch and the Dillinger Escape Plan. They have their debut album on the way, but today we're psyched to be premiering a ripping new single called "Dead End" that's sure to please anyone with a taste for old-school metalcore.
It's produced by Converge's Kurt Ballou, giving it that GodCity Studios punch that elevates it from hard-hitting to absolutely decimating. The drums are fucking furious, the vocals are strained and tattered in the best way possible, and it has a beastly breakdown at the end that'll put your drywall in danger if you play it at the right volume. Hear "Dead End" above via YouTube and keep your eyes peeled for more RILE news.
