Beyond the Shore post #Dreamkiller tour footage video, tour with War of Ages begins tomorrow!

– June 5th, 2014 –

Beyond the Shore has put together a candid music video clip with footage shot during their recent tour with Arsonists Get All the Girls, Seeker, and more. The video is for the song “#Dreamkiller” from the band’s “Ghostwatcher” album and can be seen now on metalblade.com/beyondtheshore. The band will be on tour beginning tomorrow with War of Ages and The Ongoing Concept! The tour will wind its way through towns on the east coast/Midwest from June 6-June 29. Dates are below, as well as at facebook.com/beyondtheshore.

Beyond the Shore comments: “We’re excited to announce that after our 10 week run through Feb-April, we won’t be staying home long and will be right back at it for the month of June. Playing direct support for such a veteran band in War of Ages for a month will be an amazing experience for us and we can’t wait to share it with all our fans and friends on the road!”

After their most recent tour, Beyond the Shore, launched a few videos: one chronicled some of their more entertaining tour stories, the other was a performance/lyric video for “Glass Houses.” Both of those are available in the playlist embedded on metalblade.com/beyondtheshore.

Beyond the Shore has received praise from press and fans alike with magazine heavyweights Alternative Press including the band in their AP Recommends feature and premiering the band’s production video for the track ‘Homewrecker‘, which was met with such an overwhelming response that it was pushed to be the most shared and viewed video on the site during the week of the premiere. Outburn Magazine (US) stated that “far and away their greatest asset lies in the gorgeous fluid and emotive leads…conjuring plaintive tones that are steeped in melancholy over the top of the hammering attack, and in doing so imbuing them with greater emotional impact.” Praises from press didn’t stop in the US for the Lexington, KY band though, with major publications like Rock Sound Magazine (UK) asking “Could this be a metalcore album from the future? It sounds like one…there’s heaps of melody in the guitar work, turning tracks like ‘Glass Houses’ and ‘Ghostwatcher’ into progressive epics without losing that hardcore intensity.” Additionally, Sunday Sport (UK) claimed that “Ghostwatcher may be the best thing to come out of Kentucky since fried chicken…This is metalcore at its absolute best.”

About the band:
Among the thousands of metal/hardcore bands flooding the scene, it’s rare to find a band with a positive message and unique music. With lyrics depicting both spiritual as well as heart-felt messages, this band has been captivating their audience and taking the stage by storm. BEYOND THE SHORE is a mix of metal and hardcore, which results in a metal-core band ready to destroy when they take the stage. From hammering melodic riffs followed by explosive breakdowns, machine-gun-sounding drums and such brutal vocals comes a band of close friends that are blessed to do what they love so passionately.

In 2008, the Lexington-Fayette, KY quintet formed when the members were still in high school. Relentlessly booking shows, touring and balancing school at the same time, BEYOND THE SHORE still managed to leave every audience breathless. Sharing the stage with such acts as Born Of Osiris, Shai Hulud, MyChildren MyBride, Of Machines, After The Burial and many more, BEYOND THE SHORE created quite a buzz for themselves in the little time they have been around.

The band’s first release, “The Arctic Front” EP (2009), was produced by Kelly Cairns and recorded at Lambesis Studios (As I Lay Dying, War Of Ages, Austrian Death Machine, Impending Doom) in San Marcos, California. The band’s debut album helped to build an impressive internet buzz, starting with the release of the first single “Shotgun Sunrise.” After playing several shows in support of the debut EP, BEYOND THE SHORE began work on their full-length, Ghostwatcher.

In 2012, BEYOND THE SHORE headed to Lowell, NC to record the their first full-length, which was produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered by Kevin Newland of Newland Recordings and began talks with labels as well as exploring the option of releasing on their own. BEYOND THE SHORE caught the notice of legendary metal label, Metal Blade Records, who they signed with in December of 2012.

“Could this be a metalcore album from the future? It sounds like one…there’s heaps of melody in the guitar work, turning tracks like ‘Glass Houses’ and ‘Ghostwatcher’ into progressive epics without losing that hardcore intensity.” Rock Sound Magazine (UK)

“Beyond The Shore have unleashed a fresh sound with this album: one that fans of death metal and metalcore alike are sure to enjoy” HellhoundMusic.com

“quite a few interesting elements that make this release standout from the crowd.” InfernalMasquerade.com

“All things aside, Beyond the Shore really are a breath of fresh air on the genre and are a great addition to the Metal Blade roster.” New-Transcendence.com

“The guitar work on the album is mightily melodic and with a reasonable level of repetition, but where Ghostwatcher got most interesting was in the Asking Alexandria flavored synth effects heavily ingrained and most noticeable on ‘Half Lived” and “Dreamkiller”…I didn’t expect to enjoy this album as much as I did and I must admit it’s a welcome addition to my angry metal playlist.” AngryMetalGuy.com

“Though this album doesn’t offer anything particularly new to the progressive “djent” movement, there is plenty of things worthy of praise here.” Spirit-of-Metal.com

“Overall, “Ghostwatcher” is a very good progressive metalcore record. Not only are the musicianship and production carried out incredibly well, but the music’s balance between technicality and melody truly lends itself for a nicely energetic soundtrack.” Spirit-of-Metal.com

“There’s some of that repetition here, but the album generally doesn’t get lost in it. Instead, it rises above them, somehow creating something new out of what’s becoming old.” SeaOfTranquility.org

“Transitioning from a more generic metal-core sound, Beyond The Shore has perfected their own style which really engages the audience… The 10-track album is quite perfect to listen to when in a heavy mood, however it’s an album that is too intense and distracting to be played as background music – it definitely demands all your attention (which – I think – is a good thing)” TheMetalReview.com

“So first things first; I quite liked this album and it has some meaty riffs, beat downs you could easily murder someone to and some excellent writing that will make you wish there were more songs on the album… This album, while I likened them to Parkway Drive, is much better than their last album offering and it’s not very often I’ll say that about rising bands. My rule of thumb is that bands who follow a style are rarely as good as their peers who started it, but this album pisses all over PD’s last album.” rocknreelreviews.com

“…this is a solid debut release from a very unknown band who love memorable grooves and endless bass-bombs. Someone to look out for in the future. Not the type of metal band usually associated with Metal Blade anymore, which is a sign you should check these guys out.” MoltenMagazine.com
