BURSTERS are a five-piece alternative, Post-Alternative Hardcore act from South Korea. They are leading the first wave of a new genre that is set to take the world by storm, K-Rock. The band came to the UK for the first time in July 2019 for the first part of the World Tour: K-Rock Revelation.
The band first burst onto the scene in Korea in 2014 when they appeared on TV show “Superstar K”. In the midst of the all powerful K-Pop, BURSTERS are the only metal band to ever reach the Top 6 in the history of “Superstar K”. The band signed to Evermore Music and released their debut EP Independent in early 2015. An additional 3-track EP was released in late September 2015 and the bands acclaim outside Korea grew with over 1.2 million views on YouTube for “Lost Child”. BURSTERS built up a cult following through relentless touring, and their debut album in Korea - Live In Hope, released in 2017, was critically and commercially acclaimed, achieving 85/100 in the Japanese rock bible magazine Burrn!.
If 2019 was the year K-Pop conquered all, 2020 is set to be the year K-Rock becomes the next dominant force in world music, with BURSTERS leading the charge.
Once And For All is expected in late March.
