Official press release: Rochester's own Unwill have signed a deal with Entertainment One Music / Lifeblood Inc., with plans to release Past Life, their very first LP on October 14th, 2016. The release will be the follow up to their 2015 debut single and video for "Calm," directed by Josiah Moore (Ice Nine Kills, Sirens and Sailors, It Lives, It Breathes). That year the band expanded its touring across the Northeast, exposing its unforgiving live performance alongside such acts as Letlive, He Is Legend and Norma Jean. Musically, Unwill has been compared to the likes of Linkin Park, Deftones, Chevelle and Underoath. But the band doesn't shy from putting its own spin on alternative rock. Past Life features eleven songs that are unrelenting in their grim honesty. The album deals with themes of identity, faith, self-doubt, solipsism, regret, and the truest parts of our natures. Beneath the dark exterior of these songs, however, are shreds of light. Within the eleven-song journey of Past Life, listeners will come across the many sides of Rocco Sylvio's voice, smooth on one end and coarse on the other. They will also hear cleaner guitars mixed in with the dirtier tones, and soaring melodies alongside unapologetic heavy riffs. Wherever listeners come to face Unwill, whether it be through live performance or studio recording, they can be sure to always be met with relentless force.
