Orange County melodic hardcore five-piece IGNITE are starting the new year with “Done Digging the Grave”, a brand new single and video that also offers a first in the band’s long career: a guest vocalist.

“’Done Digging the Grave’ was written about the difficulty to find optimism in a world where the hardest working do not receive the rewards they deserve and where kindness is only celebrated when it benefits us monetarily”, says Nik Hill (guitar), who wrote the lyrics, on the purpose of the song. “Being hopeless together is the best medicine for a world set on keeping us apart. This song’s negative energy burns clean and leaves nothing but positivity in its wake.”

Brett Rasmussen (bass) comments on working with Andrew Neufeld (Comeback Kid/Sights and Sounds): “This song was specifically written with having a guest vocalist in mind. When we heard the vocal tracks that Andrew added to the music we were completely blown away and in love with how the intensity of his screaming fit perfectly into the track next to Eli’s voice. This is the first time IGNITE has ever had a guest vocalist on any song.”

After playing a South American tour at the end of 2023 the band is looking forward to kickstarting the new year with plenty of shows including an Australian and a recently announced European tour that is mainly dedicated to the UK and Spain / Portugal. Brett Rasmussen on the upcoming European tour: "We are very excited to play multiple shows in UK, Spain and France on this upcoming Spring Tour. It’s been a while since we have done a week of UK dates and we are really stoked to get back to Spain and Portugal again!"
