By Definition Single ‘Warrior’ Due Early June, Following ‘The Concerns Of Mortal Man’ LP (May 26th)

Bookmark and Share
Having played Hard Rock Festival in Ibiza, and with giants like Black Label Society and Black Stone Cherry, five piece By Definition are really starting to get the recognition they deserve.

No strangers to the heavy rock bear pit they create with their live shows, their sets are notorious for their energy and originality. With an eye-catching front man described as ‘cool as sh*t’ by Underground Reviews, one memorable show in Holland also saw guitarist Rob smash two of his guitars within 30 minutes…

Single ‘Warrior’ is a stomping, anthemic track driven by a hard, chugging melody reminiscent of the aformentioned Black Stone Cherry. Officially released early June, you can take a listen on SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/bydefinition/warrior

The new album, ‘The Concerns of Mortal Men’, was born from a new found self-assurance the band have recently found in their sound.

Frontman Si puts it less subtly: “We don't give a shit what people think anymore”.

‘The Concerns of Mortal Men’ finds the band trying to bridge the gap between rock and metal whilst taking influences from hip-hop rhythms and technical inspirations from electronic music. Their biggest project to date, they have brought in Alan Douches (Motorhead, The Defiled Cannibal Corpse, Black Dahlia Murder) to master the album.

Beyond making great music, having an original live set and developing a strong following, By Definition are not your every day rock band. All self-confessed comic book geeks, Dan has a degree in theatre writing while Rob (guitar) produces electronic music in his spare time. Meanwhile, Si (vocals) has a passion for loose leaf tea – a hobby which once got him stopped at customs while they analysed a stash of green brown leaves he had with him…

‘The Concerns of Mortal Man’ LP is out May 26th, followed by single ‘Warrior’ in early June.

Press quotes:
Black Label Society styled, whiskey soaked, dirty rock”.
Rock Sound
"Straight-forward, heavy-hitting and down right filthy. Each song shit-kicks you with punishing riffage, bombastic drumming and a whiskey-swilling attitude".
Heavy Planet
"Best described as the 30 year old you’re not entirely sure you invited to your party, who has drunk all the beer...You may not have invited him, but frankly, he doesn’t care and you kind of want to get to know him anyway..."
Noise Addiction
