I DEFY

I DEFY

I DEFY was originally formed in late 1999 when Raoul (singer of Veil) and Frank (Former Miozšn Bassplayer, now Souls On Fire) hung out one afternoon at a hardcore show and talked about the idea of forming a hardcore project. After exchanging phone numbers, a few weeks of on and off in discussing potential allies, two good friends and talented musicians, Flo (Drummer of Veil) and Mathias (Guitarist in United Mutations) joined the team and the project was formed. Since all members were still engaged in their main bands and busy touring, recording etcetera I Defy was primarily seen as a side project. However, this would change soon, when the first songs were written and two local shows were played as opening band for Kill Your Idols, Shutdown, American Nightmare and Ensign. The response was so amazing (not just from the crowd but from the headlining bands as well) that I Defy decided to turn the side project into a serious band.

First Strike in 2002 The record recieved an overwhelming positive response from all over the world and motivated the band to play more live shows and even bring them to the U.K. as main support for The Hope Conspiracy.

The Firing Line was released by Reflections Records and is now ready to continue where the first E.P. left off: 12 fast, melodic brand new songs that show a variety of musical influences from Stretch Arm Strong, Shelter even to bands like Dag Nasty.

Now, the band has signed with THORP RECORDS and will unleash their new full length On The Outside on July 25th, 2006
