Exploding out of almost nowhere with debut record ‘Clarity’ on Tangled Talk Records, Vales quickly gained a rabid following amongst the short-lived UKSwell and wider post-hardcore scenes - resulting in them scoring an album deal with 6131 Records in the USA as well as touring America, doing SXSW, playing Reading and Leeds Festival and supporting Unbroken(!) in Germany amongst many other things. It was a crazily intense couple of years for a young band. This level of pressure somewhat inevitably led to a couple of line-up changes in tandem with real-life and jobs getting in the way. There are also now whispers and hints of a new musical direction forthcoming from Vales. Here and now however, HRX sees the band come out of quasi-hibernation to play their seminal debut ‘Clarity’, in full, one last time at HRX, Saturday 21st May @ The Dome, Tufnell Park…..

We are very happy to announce that we will be releasing Departures forthcoming third album 'Death Touches Us, From The Moment We Begin To Love' this summer. Having been fans of the band for some time, when the opportunity arose to work with the band we jumped at it. At this point the band might be considered almost stalwarts of the UK hardcore scene, something that hasn't gone unnoticed by the world: the band have successfully toured Japan (as well as all the usual territories), been handpicked to support Modern Life Is War and American Nightmare, as well as shows and tours along the way with Your Demise, Moose Blood, More Than Life, Funeral For A Friend, Shai Hulud, Stick To Your Guns, Balance & Composure, Seahaven, Pianos Become The Teeth and many more.
This new record streamlines, crystallizes and solidifies Departures' already achingly melodic post-hardcore sound into something truly formidable. Existing fans of the band will not be disappointed, whilst new ears will be treated to a record that blurs the line between high-energy alternative/indie and emotional post-hardcore.
Tracklisting, artwork and more new music will be revealed soon.
