Survive This! released their debut album last week. You can listen to the transcendent debut album from the Vegas band in full at Alternative Press.
Vegas is where Survive This! met Falling In Reverse front man Ronnie Radke who has become a vocal supporter of the band. Radke produced The Life That You’ve Chosen and has also lent his famous pipes to the song, Wrong Direction (Hey You). Vocalist Shawn Zyvoloski explains how the group got the attention of Radke: “One day I was hanging out with Ronnie and we were listening to my iPod on shuffle and one of the songs randomly came on and he really liked it and wanted to work with us.”
Ronnie Radke states: “I discovered the Survive This! guys out in Vegas and loved what I heard. I was excited to work with them in the studio, and now look forward to people hearing the record and touring with them in the future.”
The Life That You’ve Chosen takes the band’s diverse musical interests, from Underoath to Justin Timberlake, and combines them into an incredibly catchy amalgamation. Maybe most impressive is the fact that Survive This! can successfully merge chaotic chugging with soaring choruses with neither part sounding out of place. Then there are the electronic flourishes and accents that help take the album to the next level sonically and emotionally. Oh, and the band’s knack for crafting innovative breakdowns doesn’t hurt either.
The Life That You’ve Chosen tells the story of the boys struggle to release an album and the sheer hard work and passion that has accompanied their success. Despite their plight, which resounds in every note, the upbeat and punchy tracks reflect the bands clear capability to go further and higher than they’d ever hoped.
Survive This! have sacrificed everything to make The Life That You’ve Chosen yet despite the amount of work that’s going into every single note, they feel like they’re just getting started when it comes to what they can accomplish.
The Life That You’ve Chosen is out now.
