Sheffield six-piece Elegies have announced a signing to Hassle Records, who will release their latest EP ‘Daylight Disease’ on June 29th. ‘Daylight Disease’ sees Elegies taking their melodic hardcore to a new level, demonstrating the unique dual vocal harmonies of singers Thomas Hoyland and Sam Gibson. With a plethora of hooks, a sprinkling of their hardcore roots brought together with superb song writing, ‘Daylight Disease’ is a statement of intent from the North’s most exciting new export.
