K ROCK BAND BURSTERS RELEASE NEW TRACK BARRIERS AND ANNOUNCE DEBUT UK TOUR


K Pop is pretty well known, thanks to BTS, but it seems that K Rock is now prepared to go global and take on the world. Meet Bursters, a five-piece alternative, metal, rock act from South Korea. Their fierce sound could easily rival any UK/US post hardcore band. Their new track speaks of the divisions in our world with an urgency that you don't often hear from Western musicians.

They are leading the first wave of a new genre that is set to take the world by storm, K-Rock. The UK tour dates in July 2019 are the first in a World Tour: K-Rock Revelation.

The double A side single “Barriers / Hero” is the perfect showcase for Bursters sound. Driving metal riffs mixed with instantly memorable melodies and screamed vocals. The band mix the very best of metal with explosive live performances born from consistent touring across Korea. “Barriers” has more akin to the likes of Bring Me The Horizon than their K-Pop contemporaries and is a sure fire hit single – the song features a video by the same team that brought Bursters hit video “Lost Child”. “Hero” delves even further into alternative with screamo style vocals, brutal riffing throughout and a beautifully uplifting refrain.

Bursters are set to be the first Korean Metal band to tour the UK later this summer and following in the footsteps of worldwide sensation K-Pop artist BTS and J-Rock artists Babymetal.
