Following​ ​on​ ​from​ ​the​ ​2015​ ​release​ ​From​ ​The​ ​Ashes,​ ​XVII​ ​set​ ​out​ ​to​ ​release​ ​a​ ​new​ ​EP​ ​this year​ ​that​ ​shows​ ​off​ ​their​ ​heavier​ ​side.​ ​They​ ​have​ ​listened​ ​to​ ​the​ ​reactions​ ​that​ ​they​ ​received from​ ​fans​ ​and​ ​critics​ ​at​ ​their​ ​live​ ​performances​ ​at​ ​Bloodstock​ ​Open​ ​Air​ ​2015​ ​and​ ​Hard​ ​Rock Hell​ ​Metal​ ​2017​ ​and​ ​have​ ​put​ ​together​ ​a​ ​three​ ​track​ ​EP​ ​which​ ​has​ ​blistering​ ​guitar​ ​riffs, thunderous​ ​drum​ ​beats​ ​and​ ​fierce​ ​screamed​ ​vocals.

The​ ​three​ ​track​ ​EP​ ​is​ ​titled​ ​Bow​ ​To​ ​Me​ ​and​ ​will​ ​be​ ​released​ ​on​ ​​Monday​ ​6th​ ​November​ ​2017 in​ ​digital​ ​and​ ​physical​ ​formats.

The​ ​EP​ ​consists​ ​of​ ​three​ ​tracks:

”Shatter​ ​The​ ​Waves”​ ​which​ ​is​ ​the​ ​single,​ ​this​ ​is​ ​a​ ​song​ ​that​ ​doesn’t​ ​let​ ​up​ ​throughout​ ​with the​ ​three​ ​vocalists​ ​in​ ​the​ ​band​ ​mixing​ ​their​ ​vocal​ ​styles​ ​to​ ​create​ ​a​ ​high​ ​velocity​ ​metal anthem.

The​ ​title​ ​track​ ​”Bow​ ​To​ ​Me”​ ​which​ ​portrays​ ​a​ ​darker​ ​side​ ​to​ ​the​ ​band​ ​with​ ​vocals​ ​that​ ​are fast​ ​paced​ ​yet​ ​include​ ​melodic​ ​sections.​ ​Lyrically​ ​the​ ​track​ ​focuses​ ​on​ ​the​ ​demons​ ​that people​ ​carry​ ​around​ ​with​ ​them​ ​on​ ​a​ ​daily​ ​basis​ ​and​ ​how​ ​they​ ​deal​ ​with​ ​them.

”Scorned”​ ​is​ ​a​ ​track​ ​that​ ​has​ ​become​ ​a​ ​fan​ ​favourite​ ​when​ ​performed​ ​live,​ ​the​ ​band​ ​have said​ ​“For​ ​us,​ ​we​ ​feel​ ​that​ ​Scorned​ ​brings​ ​the​ ​curtain​ ​down​ ​on​ ​the​ ​chaos,​ ​musically​ ​and lyrically.”

A​ ​quote​ ​from​ ​Ben,​ ​the​ ​band’s​ ​drummer​ ​on​ ​their​ ​new​ ​EP:

“We​ ​feel​ ​that​ ​Bow​ ​To​ ​Me​ ​is​ ​a​ ​better​ ​representation​ ​of​ ​what​ ​the​ ​band​ ​is​ ​all​ ​about,​ ​it includes​ ​all​ ​the​ ​good​ ​stuff​ ​from​ ​our​ ​last​ ​EP,​ ​whilst​ ​showing​ ​how​ ​the​ ​band​ ​has​ ​progressed, musically​ ​and​ ​personally.”
