Glasgow alt-metal quintet The Colony have shared their new single 'Bend and Break', the third taste of their upcoming album Have Hope, due for release 7th April. It follows singles 'Ex-Hail' and 'Forever Seeking', two very different songs, showcasing the band's musical diversity. 'Bend and Break' unveils yet another facet of their metal repertoire; heft, guttural screams and crushing breakdowns. Vocalist Peter Cullen sings of a toxic relationship coming to a breaking point, a sentiment that seeps through the track's tense atmosphere.

The Colony comment: "This song is about a toxic relationship and is taken from the point of view where enough is enough, and the individual has decided to regain control of their life. No longer will they be manipulated, or their self-esteem be dragged down just to make someone else feel better about themselves."

The Colony's upcoming fourth album Have Hope was produced by Steven Jones (Bleed from Within, From Sorrow to Serenity) and is shaping up to be the band's most accomplished work yet

Since their formation, The Colony have worked tirelessly to forge their sound; a brand of metal that has unique identity, that possesses a powerful character and a musical sense of adventure.

Quickly building momentum, The Colony toured Ireland and Eastern Europe on the back of the critical acclaim reaped by their Time of Wolves album. They played several open-air festivals in Romania, including the Metalhead Meeting twice, once in 2015 with Kreator, Rotting Christ and Dragonforce; and again in 2017 with Children of Bodom, Soulfly, Kataklysm and more. The band then returned to the UK for a tour with their friends in Godstone.

With The Colony, a new peak is only ever a challenge to climb even higher, and in the summer of 2019 they announced their new full length album Smoke And Mirrors. For this set of songs, the band have taken everything that made their previous efforts so successful and seemingly effortlessly, just raised the bar in every department. Smoke And Mirrors saw the light of day in late September 2019, however the band didn’t get the chance to tour due to the pandemic.

Now back with new music, the band will be announcing big plans for 2023.
