    RIGHTEOUS VENDETTA is ready for battle, driven by the fire of the classic New Wave Of American Metalcore movement, with a fresh melodic bent. They are primed to decimate the airwaves and the stage, with a unifying message of hope and inspiration, all delivered with smoldering intensity. 

    Arising from humble small town origins, Righteous Vendetta offer positivity and encouragement against adversity, with a sound of defiance and power. 

    The band's new album for Century Media Records, Cursed, arrives after a long season of writing, rewriting, honing, shaping and refining. It was a process that resulted in a definitive mission statement for the quintet, laying the blueprint for the band's evolving creative identity. Cursed was produced and mixed by Mitch Marlow (In This Moment, Stitched Up Heart). 

    They effortlessly combine the diverse melodic Swedish death metal of vintage In Flames with the spirit-filled pop-melodicism of Anberlin, easily appealing to fans who grew up listening to albums like The End of Heartache by Killswitch Engage and Shadows Are Security by As I Lay Dying. There's even a bit of the SoCal hardcore-meets-Pantera fury of Throwdown, not as much in overt sonic thunder as in energetic, steadfast perseverance. 

    This is a band that knows what it means to fight for everything they've got, to earn respect with integrity, to standup and be counted, to surpass and defy all expectations by delivering the goods on an awe-inspiring scale. This is metalcore for the underdog, a new collection of anthems for a generation hungry for music that's authentic and pure. Righteous Vendetta is reverent to the greatest strengths of the scene's past, yet equally forward-thinking. 

    Gestated in a small town in rural Wyoming (population: 3000), these five young men have beaten the odds against isolation, outside pressure, and the daily grind to conjure a ridiculously catchy and relentlessly fierce metalcore sound to rival the genre's titans and light up the world's stages.

    "There was no music scene, really, which forced us to tour," explains vocalist Ryan Hayes, who first formed Righteous Vendetta after discovering his college piano teacher could shred on guitar. "The closest 'big' market to us was Denver, which is about nine hours from where we live. By the time we were signed, we already had over a thousand tour dates under our belts. It really helped to shape us as musicians and who we are as a band." 

    The lineup shifted a bit ("we'd have to find new members on YouTube or wherever else we could") before it solidified as Hayes, guitarists Justin Olmstead and Carl Heiman, bassist Riley Haynie, and drummer Zack Goggins. After opening for Hatebreed, Righteous Vendetta caught the attention of Jamey Jasta, who encouraged them to explore more of the melodic side of their already crushingly heavy, breakdown-friendly music. 

    Songs like "The Fire Inside," "With Love" and "What You've Done" helped grow the band's fanbase, through hard-touring, social media, online videos, and a series of independent releases and material issued by Red Cord Records, with the 2014 Defiance EP cementing the group as a rising force. 

    The two years Righteous Vendetta spent crafting Cursed was time well spent. "We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to write 'hits' at one point," the band's frontman confesses. "If you get too much into that mentality, you can start to lose yourself. So as we made Cursed, we focused on what we were when we started: a metal band. And we wrote a metal album."

    Which isn't to say the album is without hooks. "Doomed" is the heaviest song on the record (inspired by the classic video game, Doom), yet its chorus is unabashedly melodic. "The video game is about killing demons and ripping their faces off," notes Hayes, with a laugh. "It's a super metal game." Lead single "Weight of the World" is a radio-ready banger, co-written by the group with Atreyu drummer/melodic vocalist Brandon Saller.

    The band poured their frustrations into both "Weight of the World" and the album's crushing title track, "Cursed," taking the uncertainty and struggle of the long album making process and putting it to good use in an empowering way. There is plenty of darkness to be found all over Cursed, but it's designed to work less as a burning poison and more as healing oil. 

    Cursed is the soundtrack to Righteous Vendetta's overall mission statement. "We've always wanted to have a positive influence on people's lives, but in a real way," Hayes explains. "We want to connect with people, find common ground, and develop real relationships that aren't superficial. 

    "There are some bands that are very manufactured. Everyone in our band is fully invested in our music," he adds. "That passion comes out onstage and on the record. It's something we strive to put across every single day."
