Biography

It hasn’t been the easiest of years for Hertfordshire based quartet, Proceed. ‘Seven Months and a Fire Blanket’ was supposed to be released this Easter, but things had to be put on hold when frontman Dan Lancaster was diagnosed with a serious heart condition, that whilst obviously a cause for concern, was fully curable by surgery. Thankfully, Dan has now had this surgery and is nearing full health again, and what better way to kick things off again than to release an exciting slice of uplifting melodic tinged hardcore, completed perfectly by the young frontmans incredible vocals.

Having honed their craft on the live circuit, taking in shows alongside fellow noisy UK upstarts, Enter Shikari, Flood of Red, Devil Sold His Soul and We Are The Ocean, Proceed have become quite the spectacle live, turning everything you’ll hear on ‘Seven Months and a Fire Blanket’ up a notch further, not to be missed – we assure you.

With recent events overcome, the lyrical content of ‘Seven Months and a Fire Blanket’ has an underlining sense of positivity and overcoming, and serves more as proof that sometimes all you need is a bit of P.M.A. If you’re looking for half-arsed tales of puppy-love, you’ve picked up the wrong CD entirely, the same applies if you’re after stock hardcore instrumentation. Proceed are an intelligent band, with youth on their side, and look set to fill the void left by the likes of the hardworking Reuben and Million Dead.
