mypetme (UK) - RTFM (Post-Hardcore) single release

For Fans Of Enter Shikari, The Blackout, Saosin, Underoath

How about a little journey back in time? Our destination is the English capital London in the year 2004. It is the year in which Barclay James Harvest drummer Mel Pritchard died, as well as legendary radio disc jockey John Peel. But also, new hope for the British music underground was on the rise as London’s mypetme released their demo “RTFM”.

“RTFM” stands for “Read the Fucking Manual” and featured two tracks. Besides the title track, mypetme recorded the song ‘Ghost Notes’ for their release. Together, the demo had a run time of almost ten minutes that presented a very progressive approach towards Post Hardcore and Alternative Metal. Dark riffs feeling like a chilly silk cover envelop brachial Post Hardcore breaks. The atmosphere went from soulful to revolting, and was fitting for either a deliberating mosh pit, raising your fists to the anthemic choruses, or hugging your neighbour and celebrating the power of unity.

mypetme were formed in 2003 and the band immediately got the chance to play alongside Fireapple Red, Aconite Thrill, and Mahumodo. When their demo “RTFM” was released, they were featured on BBC Radio 1's Rock Show and a compilation by BasickRecords. Plans were forged out and tours were planned. Unfortunately, mypetme split up in 2005. Their unique sound may be gone, but not forgotten.
