Solid State Records have signed Lifelong and will be releasing their new album “Above The Waves” on July 17th. The outfit features former Confide members Trevor Vickers and Joel Piper and the title track to the aforementioned album can be heard below:
Lifelong is a melodic hardcore band from San Diego, CA. Members Trevor Vickers and Joel Piper first met playing in Confide, a band that ruled the metalcore scene in the mid-2000s. Years after disbanding, Vickers and Piper reunited serendipitously in San Diego. The chance encounter ignited what would become Lifelong—a pop-meets-punk hardcore outfit inspired by the duo’s musical roots. After releasing the EP “Revive The Masses” in 2018, Lifelong signed with Solid State Records and began working on their debut full-length, “Above The Waves.”
“Above The Waves” is an album of celebration. The songs partner struggle with triumph, injecting positivity into a music scene desperate for it. Harnessing the energy of Comeback Kid with the motive of Taking Back Sunday, Lifelong’s reputation is full of hope and enthusiasm. Their heavy and happy instrumentation carries more melody and pop than their previous metal group, introducing fans to a sound inspired by the SoCal punk scene. Not only did the duo write and record the entire record themselves, they produced and engineered it. By combining their strengths and learning new tricks, Vickers and Piper built a band with the buoyancy to rise above the rest.
