Melodic post-hardcore band Carnival Kids formed in 2010 by musicians from Oslo, Norway and Liverpool, England: guitarist/vocalist Jethro Fox, vocalist Eric Molumby, bassist/vocalist John Stark, and drummer/vocalist Andreas Westhagen.
The group's sound was heavily inspired by hard, angular alternative and hardcore bands such as Rival Schools
, and Botch
. They debuted with anthemic 2013 singles "Fear of Nothing" and "What to Do When Awake Within a Dream," both on Killing Moon Records. The group played shows with Gallows
and Trash Talk
, and signed with Warner Music
in 2014. They traveled to Colorado to record with veteran punk producer Bill Stevenson, and debut full-length While the World Keeps Ending was released in 2015. ~ Paul Simpson, Rovi
