Tickets can be purchased via ticketweb for the bargain price of £5.95.

The Survival Code have a unique alt-rock sound which brings together heavy drops and melodious breaks as well as honest distorted riffs and skilled songwriting, while bashing out catchy ‘pop’ chords. Plunging guitars play against shadowy lyrics which provides an interesting contrast to their often upbeat rhythms.

Vocalist Gary McGuinness comments:
“Music is a form of storytelling, and it’s my job to make that story captivating” 

The Survival Code bring together old school and contemporary rock sounds, drawing influence from the likes of Coheed and Cambria, Foo Fighters, Deftones, Alkaline Trio, Lamb of God, the Cure, Taking Back Sunday, SOAD, Billy Corgan, The Beatles and Jonny Cash.

The album launch show will be the worlds first chance to get a glimpse of ‘MMXV’ before it is released worldwide on the 20th July 2015.

The album was produced by John Merriman of Crown Lane studios who works with orchestras and ‘big sounds’ and was mastered by Matt Hyde (Slipknot, Gallows, Ash, Machine Head, Funeral for a Friend) – striking a perfect balance of serenity and aggression, and presenting the band as an exciting new prospect.

Paying homage to one of the UK’s great alt-rock bands, whilst also celebrating their own journey to date, The Survival Code recently released a cover of Radiohead’s ‘Street Spirit (Fade Out)’, check it out here:


TSC played throughout London and beyond in 2011-2012, gaining a solid touring background and fan-base, before taking 20-months out to write and record the full album. A record deal with respected record label, IRL (Independent Records Limited) followed and all of a sudden there was a vehicle to release their music to the masses professionally.
