Steal The City on the Road To Nowhere

Sheffield has been producing world beating rock/metal music powerhouses for decades. Iconic legacy artists Def Leppard put the steel city on the world’s map, paving the way for modern metal heavyweights Bring Me The Horizon and While She Sleeps to emerge and collectively dominate the modern alternative music scene. 

Now stepping up to stake their claim is Steal The City, a young Sheffield group whose melodic yet aggressive songs and ferocious live performances have been turning heads and taking names over the past few years. With such a rich musical heritage, Steal The City’s relentless drive and potent creativity is now realised on their upcoming debut studio album, Road To Nowhere.

As heard on Kerrang! Radio, lead single and album opener, ‘Drag Me To Hell’, reflects on the dark toxic nature of social media and drags listeners in with its unrestrained lyrics and fierce energy.

Recorded and produced by guitarist James Kirkham at STC HQ, with mastering duties courtesy of Ste Kerry (Sleep Token, While She Sleeps, Malevolence), the debut album is stuffed with anthems of protest, but ultimately soaring with unity and fortitude that blend uplifting melodies delivering a potent message of resilience.

The new album lyrical themes delve into the myriad challenges faced by modern day music artists and individuals alike, navigating the murky terrain of achieving tangible success in their craft in a time of screens dominating day to day life. Steal The City embraces a liberating belief that the human journey holds greater significance than the destination.

Road To Nowhere is released 20th September and features the tracks: Drag Me To Hell’, ‘In Ruins’, ‘Stand Together’, ‘If You Could See Me Now’, ‘You Don’t Define Me’, ‘Knight The Unholy’, ‘Timebomb’, ‘Tomorrow’s Another Day’, ‘Up In Smoke’,  ‘Adrenaline’ and ‘Road To Nowhere’.

Steal The City play an album launch date at Yellow Arch Studios in Sheffield on 27th September. In the meantime, the ‘Drag Me To Hell’ single is available digitally, and you can check out the video here at RAMzine.
