The ground-breaking new band out of Montreal called Skip The Foreplay have perfected a unique and exhilarating new genre of music. The sound is a high energy raucous sound merging the heaviness of metal, earth-shaking hardcore breakdowns and the massive irresistible beats of electronic dance music that include elements of dub-step, hip-hop and house. As the group recently explained, “We play party music. It’s a mix of hard metal and dance music, not really hardcore, it’s more like party core.”
The band burst on to the scene, devastating audiences with their original and thoroughly brutal cover of the song “Champagne Showers” by the popular electro pop duo LMFAO. The Skip The Foreplay version retains all the seductive dance floor hooks – the band are fans of the original version, but adds a dose of serious heaviness including massive bass drops, breakdowns, and thunderous guitars.
The band’s distinctive high energy mayhem is on full display in the video for the band’s song "This City (We're Taking Over)." You can view the clip and see what the buzz is about by going to the Epitaph YouTube Channel.
Skip The Foreplay will be releasing their anticipated full length Epitaph debut, Nightlife, on May 01, 2012. Until then, the band is taking their wild live show on the road. They just completed their first ever tour, a massively successful stint supporting rising stars, Falling In Reverse. This summer the band will be appearing on the Vans Warped Tour. “Every time we play, the kids have gone absolutely crazy,” the band members say. “We haven’t had a bad reaction. People seemed to really love it and we’re incredibly stoked to keep touring.”
