“They’re a band that already sound so colossal, they could probably beat Magneto in a fight.”
– Alex Baker, Kerrang! Radio Fresh Blood
Irish quartet BAILER have announced their long-awaited debut album Disposable Youth, due for release on 12th November 2021 via Blood Blast Distribution. To celebrate, the metallic hardcore outfit have shared a video for their new single ‘Cruel Master’, featuring Conjurer‘s Brady Deeprose.

Vocalist Alex O’Leary comments on the new single:
“‘Cruel Master’ is about the give and take that comes with addiction. While things like alcohol offer a safe space, an escape from anxiety, something to take the edge off, dependency to these things lead to enslavement. You give yourself to these things and they eventually take everything from you.”

Following on from 2018’s self-titled EP (Distroy Records), 2017’s PTSD and 2016’s Shaped By The Landscape, BAILER’s ambitious collection of tracks is about to expand and truly propel their notoriety outside of their native Ireland.
Recorded, mixed, mastered and produced by Lewis Johns at The Ranch Production House in Southampton, Disposable Youth dives into a grim view of the world from a place of manic depression and nihilism. 100% of the material was written in a room together: no writing on computers or demos being shared around virtually. For Disposable Youth, BAILER consciously decided to write every single song in a jam room together, fleshing it all out and creating what felt right in real life. There’s nothing wrong or right about any form of creativity, but the results speak for themselves.
Having impressively garnered attention from Metal Hammer, Kerrang!, Metal Injection and Heavy Blog Is Heavy so early into their career, BAILER have proven to be Ireland’s most exhilarating heavy band. Now with their debut album on the horizon, the quartet are setting their sights on becoming one of hardcore’s most exciting prospects.
BAILER have already a strong reputation on their home ground, playing shows alongside Norma Jean, Sick Of It All, The Black Dahlia Murder, Conjurer, Employed To Serve, Palm Reader, Malevolence, God Mother, Coilguns and more.
2018 and 2019 saw the band start to mark their territory further afield, having successfully toured Russia and the UK extensively in support of their self-titled EP. In 2021, BAILER are eager to get back on international stages to launch the new era of the band. Starting with Bloodstock Festival earlier this month, expect to hear a lot more from BAILER over the coming months.
