To celebrate our album launch, we’ll be playing a special show at Leicester’s Dryden Street Social (check out the event page here) on Sept 22nd alongside recent Metal to the Masses winners Blood Oath and finalists Ubiquitous. With DJs playing late into the night, this promises to be one hell of a showcase for the best Leicester has to offer in rock and metal.
Check out this month’s Fireworks Magazine for a detailed feature on Final Coil and a track on the free CD. Inside you’ll find a detailed interview with singer / guitarist Phil Stiles. The magazine (issue 80) is scheduled for a Sept 18th release.
Pre-order the digital version of Final Coil’s debut album via Bandcamp now (iTunes & Spotify released on 23/06/2017) and get ‘Corruption’ straight away!
You waste my time’ is the epic second single to be released from Final Coil’s forthcoming debut album ‘Persistence of Memory’, which is set to be released worldwide via WormHoleDeath Records. Mixed by Wahoomi Corvi of Real Sound Studios and mastered by Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna), ‘Persistence of Memory’ is a richly varied album that provides the perfect introduction to the band.
An energetic track, ‘You waste my time’ showcases the band’s more experimental side with synth drums, intricate vocal harmonies and deftly interwoven guitar lines all drawing the listener towards a pummelling finale that blazes with unexpected fury. A perfect example of the band’s dynamic and ever-evolving sound, ‘You waste my time’ pulses with energy and yet retains the melodic depth that sits at the core of the band’s song-writing.
The video, captured by Jay Hillyer (Cabin Boy Jumped Ship) sees Final Coil continue to seek out creative and talented individuals with whom to work, having previously collaborated with Andy Pilkington (Flotsam and Jetsam) on the stunning lyric video for ‘corruption’, and the result is a beautifully rendered clip that captures the raw energy of the band’s live performance and adds a darkly cinematic edge reminiscent of clips by A Perfect Circle, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden. Filmed at Palmers Garden Centre in Enderby (during working hours, much to the bemusement of staff and customers alike), the clip provides what will be, for many, a first glimpse of Final Coil.
‘Persistence of Memory’ is to be released digitally on June 23 (with a US release of July 14 and on CD on Sept 22, with a Japanese release scheduled for Nov 29 via WormHoleDeath Records.
Phil recently had the opportunity to sit down and chat with Bernadette Barter of Indie Views. In a wide-ranging talk, Phil discusses the formation of Final Coil and the band’s place in the wider music industry. you can check out the piece here.

Final Coil are pleased to announce that they have progressed to the quarter finals of the Leicester Metal 2 the Masses competition. Playing against stiff competition, the band delivered a ferociously heavy set drawing upon material from their two, currently-available EPs (2011’s Live with doubt and 2015’s Closed to the light), as well as from their forthcoming debut album. Thus far, the band have remained guarded about the record, but the live tracks previewed suggest a focus upon vocal harmonies and taut, edgy riffs. You can read a review of the night here.
The band are now gearing up for their quarter final, which will be held at Leicester’s Firebug venue on April 9th. You can see the event page for the heat here.
On April 7th the band are also set to lay waste to The Arches venue in Coventry where they will open the well-respected Mosh Against Cancer festival. Also playing that day are Pelugion, The Darkhorse and Dakesis, who headline the night. Not only an event in support of a great cause, Mosh Against Cancer is a showcase for the very best in UK talent and Final Coil are very excited and proud to be a part of it.

2016 has been a remarkable year for Final Coil. Following the release of the ‘Closed to the light’ EP in 2015, the band has been working hard behind the scenes to write a full-length debut album and we’re proud to announce that, finally, we are entering the studio. Yesterday morning, the whole band flew out to Italy to spend three weeks at the respected Real Sound Studios, the same studio in which both CreTura and The Way Of Purity recorded. Featuring eleven songs, the album expands upon the experimentation of ‘Closed to the light’ whilst still offering up the trademark powerful riffs and twisted harmonies that have been at the core of the band’s sound since the start. We’ll be updating from the studio and sharing more details in the coming weeks, but we’d like to start by thanking all those that have supported us this year and we hope that you’ll join us on the next stage of our journey. x
Final Coil will be opening for symphonic extreme metal band CreTura when they play Leicester on Sunday. CreTura, who recently released their acclaimed album ‘Fall of the seventh Golden Star’ (reviewed by our good friends at SonicAbuse here) via WormHoleDeath records, are playing just a few dates in the UK, so this is set to be a very special and intimate show.
Check out this cool clip from the album:
The bill is rounded off with London’s ‘Immortal Machinery’ (you can find out more here) who previously played at Leicester’s Shed venue. A dark and uncompromising band who recorded alongside Megadeth’s Glen Drover, Immortal Machinery are a passionate and creative band and we’re proud to share a stage with them once again.
