Christian -based hardcore metal band Saving Grace are re-uniting and they will be launching new music and tours very soon. The group disbanded in 2019, and they have been trying to reunite for a long time now.
"We had planned to do things differently, but the situation globally with the pandemic continued to delay and postpone all of our plans... Time and time again. The secret is... we are back," Saving Grace posted on social media. "We have been working on new music together since almost a year back and we were supposed to announce our reunion and NZ tour in celebration of The King is Coming Back turning ten years last year in November, but again our country entered another extensive lockdown in August."
Since 2005 Saving Grace's ever-growing fan base and dedication to touring has earned them the reputation of the most successful spirit-filled hardcore act downunder. Saving Grace was born in a small coastal beach town in New Zealand, a sleepy beginning to a band that would become a metallic hardcore powerhouse, playing music in the 90s hardcore style of Earth Crisis and Arkangel mixed with classic metal bands like Slayer and Sepultura.
Saving Grace joined the Strike First roster in 2010 and released Unbreakable, then soon became part of the Facedown Family with the release of The King Is Coming in 2011. The band then released their fourth studio album The Urgency to critical acclaim, reaching number one on the New Zealand iTunes heavy music chart, and charting in the top 20 state-side. Critics have called The Urgency "utterly punishing" and "a powerhouse release", saying of the release that "each song is more savage than the last".
"Tickets to our first show in New Zealand since 2018 are on sale now," the band continued. "We couldn't be happier to be doing it with some of our good friends. We know you have a lot of questions, and we can't wait to share more with you soon. New music and tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks."
