If it wasn't for The Recovery! this record label wouldn't really exist.

"The Recovery! formed out of the ashes of various bands that split up. Several failed relationships ended up in nights of alcohol fuelled debauchery in a cold dingy flat in Glasgow's West End. The five members met just at the right time sharing experiences from hurling guitars out of smashed windows to crying tears of sheer desperation through shared experiences of love and loss. Beanzy the guitarist jokingly mentioned that they should call their new musical endeavour The Recovery! And that’s exactly what the band came to be – a musical vessel for each band member’s recovery from the depths of despair." - Division PR Press Release.

Their latest EP 'Wherever Nowhere Takes Us' was our second release, and has already garnered coverage from the likes of Kerrang! MTV Rocks, Daniel P Carter's BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, Rhythm Magazine,Big Cheese and Rock Sound, as well as being mentioned on the BBC's Vic Galloway's ones to watch in 2013 list.

"A big big slab of rock, some serious heavy riffs from Glasgow. It is brutal, the sort of thing Daniel P Carter has for his breakfast." - Ally McCrae, BBC Radio 1.

"The Recovery's Scottish accents sounded odd among such an America-centric bill, but they represented the homeland well and spurned some pretty serious nodding." - Slam Dunk Scotland 2012 review. Fiona McKinlay, The Herald.

"[The Recovery!] have found an almighty sound on 'Wherever Nowhere Takes Us'" - Rhythm Magazine

"The Recovery fuse an uncompromising metal sound with an anarchic punk spirit...They manage to channel pure rage into their playing, guitars sound like they are being beaten, vocal chords deliberately punished, cementing the album as an expression of unfiltered self loathing, reminding us that the  greatest acts of aggression are those that we would commit to ourselves." - Vulture Hound Magazine.

"The Recovery! rock, ruck 'n' roll their way through an assortment of deadly, dynamic, hardcore-tinged chops off Cancer Bats' blocks." - Kerrang! Magazine.

They recently did a session for XFM and it showcases the absolute aural chaos that the band create in a live environment. Their boundless energy and knack for a catchy tune is really what powers their EP and their live shows, and these guys are definitely a band you'll fall in love with if you like mixing melody and crushing heaviness.

The song 'The Faint and Fragile' was released as a free download, and the video has been featured on Scuzz, Kerrang! TV, and MTV Rocks. They're awesome, so give 'em a listen! Especially if you really like Every Time I Die or Cancer Bats.
