Danish post-hardcore trio Disillusionist are set for the impending release of their debut EP, Love & Anxiety, due out May 1 via Over The Under Records.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by the band’s own Frederik Brandt Jakobsen, Love & Anxiety pushes the evolution of screamo and post-hardcore with a furor of expression and catharsis.
Watch the video for “Sleeper” below, featuring Victor Kaas of Danish hardcore act EYES:
Formed in 2018, Disillusionist are a three-piece melodic hardcore band from Copenhagen, Denmark, consisting of drummer Sara Gacic (Ivy Crown), guitarist Jakob Høy, and vocalist Frederik Brandt Jakobsen.
“‘Sleeper’ marks the newly refined sound of the band with its melodic guitar riffs, catchy chorus, and heavy breakdown,” says Jakobsen. “We were really lucky to get Victor Kaas from EYES onboard as a feature and that added an excellent final touch to the songs. Right now, we are really excited to get it out and hear people’s reactions!”
What started as a solo endeavor for Jakobsen has morphed into an emotive and charismatic throwback to the sounds of the early 2000s, and this EP is proof that the scene never really went away.
