Imminence Records is pleased to announce the signing of Georgia based melodic hardcore outfit Midwayer. Having formed in 2013, this band is a passion project for the members with guitarist Gary Pounds adding, “We’ve each been involved in several different genres, we’ve run the musical gamut and what we’ve done here, what we’re doing now just feels right. Imminence Records is giving us an opportunity to spread our music to an exponentially wider audience then we would have been able to do on our own. And for that, we’re very excited.” With different musical background ranging from pop-punk to southern rock and even grindcore, Midwayer’s take on melodic hardcore is something unique and refreshing while also feeling familiar.

To celebrate the signing, Midwayer has also released their brand new single off their upcoming debut EP entitled Thresholds. “Before The Flood,” which can be heard HERE, is the closing track off the six song EP and the second single after album opener “The Golden Flower.” Guitarist Miles Atanasu-Teeters went on to describe the release, “Well we really are excited to have the support of Imminence Records to release this EP that we have literally been working on for two years now. Two years for six songs does seem like a little much, but that is the amount of thought and attention to detail we’ve been struggling with to ensure that each part of every song is exactly how we want it to sound.”Thresholds will be released July 17th as Imminence Records’ first Friday release of the new global release day initiative.

Forming in southern Georgia in 2013, Midwayer quickly became a passion project for the members who had been in many bands of many different musical styles throughout the years. With the musical styles ranging from pop-punk to southern rock and even grindcore, the band’s take on melodic hardcore is something unique and refreshing while also feeling familiar. After giving their debut EP extensive amount of thought and attention to detail, Midwayer announced that Thresholds was ready to be released and dropped their first single, “The Golden Flower.” The single quickly drew the attention of Imminence Records, whom the band signed to in early June to release Thresholds on July 17th, 2015. Midwayer has only scratched the surface of their potential and will soon be a household name.
