In October 2017 they self produced and self released their debut EP 'Endure'. It was described as "a unique mixture of metalcore as well as melo-death which, in my mind, seems like a pretty reasonable mix if the execution is right. And these guys almost pulled it off on the first fucking try" by Headbanger Reviews. As well as garnering an 8/10 review from Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life.
Gigging extensively through the first half of 2018 led them to headline the New Blood Stage at Bloodstock Festival 2018 as well as a main support slot on 'Misfits' member Doyle's opening night of his 2018 European tour.
"Earthbound have established a strain of melodic metal all of their own, perfectly blending traditional melodic death metal riffs with prodigious choruses and progressive concepts."
