Chalk Hands Presents:


Canadian DIY collective Respire have been crafting cinematic, genre-defying soundscapes since forming in the bitter winter of 2013, when they spent evenings and weekends honing their craft in a frigid west-end Toronto basement. Blending lush, emotive orchestration with the fervour and aggression of blackened hardcore, Respire aim to create hopeful music for troubling times.2022 now finds Respire with Church Road Records in the UK/EU and Dine Alone Records – home to some of Canada’s most beloved acts- in the rest of the world. With a Black Line vinyl repress imminent and a world continuing its descent into decay, Respire’s message rings louder than ever.

Respire are joined by UK post-black metal quintet Underdark, as well as local support from Chalk Hands (Dog Knights – screamo/post-rock) and Dead Bird (TTNG drummer’s new screamo/post-hardcore project).
