With a rise to prominence nearly as relentlessly fast as their music, Canada's Obey the Brave formed in 2012 and almost immediately found a fan base.
Based out of Ottawa and Montreal, the band features ex-Despised Icon
singer Alex Erian on vocals as well as bassist Miguel Lepage, guitarists John Campbell and Greg Wood, and drummer Stevie Morotti. By the middle of 2012, just over half-a-year after becoming a band, the metalcore act found itself signed to iconic label Epitaph
, with the band's debut album, Young Blood, released in August of that same year. A sophomore album, Salvation, followed in 2014. For their third album, 2017's Mad Season, the band branched out stylistically by including a collaboration with French-Canadian rap group Loud Lary Ajust. ~ Gregory Heaney, Rovi
