Hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada, We Gave it Hell is a heavy-as-hell five-piece that is gearing up to leave a fist-shaped mark on the worlds
of metal and hardcore. The band just dropped The Conditioning EP on April 8 via Itunes, Spotify, and other media outlets. The second single "Ares" is an explosive anthem, built to be the soundtrack for a punishing time in the pit. It is this song's potent live performance, partnered with a massive wall of death, at the 2014 Extreme Thing Sports and Music Festival that is the setting for the band's latest music video, which BlankTV premiered exclusively May 7th.
Postings on Craigslist and a handful of mutual friends led to the formation of We Gave it Hell in 2012. They immediately found themselves with a following thanks to an overwhelmingly positive response from the earliest releases, as well as their dedication to playing as many shows as possible throughout the Southwestern United States. Their sound is a combination of Deftones' melody, groove and ambience matched with the pummeling onslaught of metalcore heroes like Born of Osiris. This unique combination of genres has earned them a great deal of respect from fans and peers alike.
Recently, the group was handpicked by Sumerian Records as one of the top 17 bands in the country to play in the finals for the label's Road to the Sphinx Competition. They've also played a date on Mayhem Festival and are set to play a date on The All Stars Tour in summer 2014. In their hometown, they've played the main stage at the city's Extreme Thing Festival two years in a row. With all of these shows under their belts, they've managed to share the stage with Bring Me the Horizon, Asking Alexandria, Parkway Drive, Killswitch Engage, Emmure, Born of Osiris, Sleeping with Sirens, Of Mice and Men, Attila, Upon A Burning Body, Issues, Volumes, City in the Sea, Misery Signals and many more. It may seem like they've already accomplished a lot, but We Gave it Hell is just getting started.
