SeeYouSpaceCowboy and If I Die First have announced a five-track split EP, A Sure Disaster.

The bands' upcoming release is due out on May 14 via Pure Noise, with collaborative new single bloodstainedeyes out now (see the gloriously rowdy video below).

"We are happy to finally let this project surface, two bands, one group of friends,” announces SeeYouSpaceCowboy's Connie Sgarbossa. "It was a lot of fun working with IIDF on this and putting this together, we both take influence from the same era of metalcore/post-hardcore but with us each having our own personal spin on it. so I hope it serves as an engaging listen.

"When we first came up with the idea of doing this split I really wanted to do a collaborative song. It was something I couldn’t really cite many bands doing, if any, that came to my mind in this sub-genre. I wanted to take it farther than just featuring on each other’s tracks – a song that combined and took crucial elements of each band and made it something that represented both of us and was cohesive. So we are all got together and fucked my apartment up but wrote this song and recorded it and shot a music video and somehow made it work."

If I Die First’s Zubin adds: "This became so much more than just a split for me. During such dark and uncertain times, it was hard to find a light to stay inspired, and this project sparked that. Getting together, feeding off each other’s energies, laughing, the whole process kept me sane. We wrote songs that I am extremely proud of and we also gained life long friends."

"This split means a lot to me," concludes Nedarb. "It's two bands that share the same passion and everyone's energy vibes off each other perfectly. I hope everyone enjoys the project as much as we do."
