Survive This! Announce Epitaph DebutHailing from Las Vegas, Nevada, Survive This! is set to release their debut album The Life That You’ve Chosen on October 29 on Epitaph. Produced by Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke with Ryan Ogren in Hollywood, this is an album not to be missed.

To get acquainted, Survive This! is vocalist Shawn Zyvoloski, his cousin on drums Billy Sanderson, childhood friend/guitarist Daniel Ingram, and bassist Doug Horn. The band played together as teenagers and formally came into existence in 2009 with the addition of guitarist AJ Veloz. After cutting their teeth playing shows in Pahrump, Nevada, Survive This! relocated to Las Vegas. Vegas is also where they met Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke who has become a vocal supporter of the band. He produced the album and lent his famous pipes to the song “Wrong Direction (Hey You)”. Ronnie Radke says:

"I discovered the Survive This! guys out in Vegas and loved what I heard. I was excited to work with them in the studio, and now look forward to people hearing the record and touring with them in the future."

The Life That You’ve Chosen takes the band’s diverse musical interests, from Justin Timberlake to Underoath, and combines them into an incredibly catchy amalgamation. Maybe most impressive is the fact that Survive This! can successfully merge chaotic chugging with soaring choruses with neither part sounding out of place. Then there are the electronic flourishes and accents that help take the album to the next level sonically and emotionally. Oh, and the band's knack for crafting innovative breakdowns doesn't hurt either.

And if you couldn't guess from the title, The Life That You've Chosen, tells the story of how the band have always remained hopeful even if they haven't lead a fairy-tale existence. Shawn Zyvoloski says:

"This album is insanely personal. Everyone needs a release to get out the frustrations that you have inside and I'm so thankful we found this and other people can relate to it as well. It's something really special."

Survive This! have sacrificed everything to make The Life That You've Chosen yet despite the amount of work that's going into every single note, they feel like they're just getting started when it comes to what they can accomplish.

01. The Life You’ve Chosen

In 2009 the easycore crowds with neon clothes would have gone crazy for this band.

I thought this was goofy as fuck. A tiny bit catchy, but nothing more than that. The terrible singing really ruins it and makes it laughable.

Also, Radke/Ogren sure is an interesting producer combination - but for what I'm assuming will be a pop record trying to appeal to the scene, I guess it makes sense.

I enjoy this. Definitely wasn't what I was expecting when I saw Ronnie Radke's name.

I wouldn't say they successfully merged chaotic chugging with soaring choruses. It was catchy as a pop-punkish song, but then oh, hey needless screaming. Song sounds like a shitty mash-up of two genres as a result.
