THE SURVIVAL CODE / Press

“The Survival Code are a no gimmick, straight up guitar-led Alt-Rock band consisting of drums, bass, lead and rhythm guitar. FX pedals are about as hi-tech as the live set up gets, with no sequencers or laptops in sight. This suits their wall of anthemic guitar-drenched sounds, and their direct delivery enraptures the grinning spectators. In Gary McGuinness they have a steely frontman who clearly believes in every syllable he’s belting out. Fans of Mallory Knox, You Me At Six and Theory of a Deadman will appreciate The Survival Code and their raucous musicianship. Mixing up the tempos helps them build up excitement, the audience is kept on their toes waiting to see what’s coming next. If The Survival Code can stick their heads above the noise without the use of digital effects and the latest technology, they may well just make an indelible mark on the rock landscape in a packed marketplace.”

“A free melodic offering from London alt-rock quartet The Survival Code which has been released to coincide with a couple of local gigs for them in Islington and Camden. Being free it's always worth a listen, but the truth is, this is a really good taster track. Well written and delivered, its slow melodic flow builds to a gig friendly chant that's not going to leave anyone who respects talented musicians disappointed. Should inspire a few of the Shoreditch Beards brigade to leave Hoxton to check them out live.”

“Powerful, intensive vocals, finishing with impressive, uprising melodies. There is a bond felt in every note which can’t fail to capture listeners. Drawing their influences from the likes of Muse, Deftones and Silverchair, The Survival Code has their own character which is very distinct even at this young stage of the band.”
