Having formed in 2005 in the unassuming small town of Gisborne City, Saving Grace have gone on to become one of the country’s most successful heavy music exports.
Since their inception, the band have signed multiple international record deals, released four highly successful studio albums and
in 2013 signed with United States powerhouse management firm Crimson Management (The Acacia Strain, Job For A Cowboy, Shadows Fall & more).
Saving Grace’s career has seen the band’s reach grow from small hometown shows to headlining numerous tours and international festival appearances
sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in international metal and hardcore including: Misery Signals, Darkest Hour, Emmure, As I Lay Dying,
Underoath, Parkway Drive, Bring Me The Horizon, Stick To Your Guns, Winds of Plague, The Chariot, Anthrax, Hatebreed, Suicidal Tendencies and many more.
Their fourth studio album ‘The Urgency’ blew up in January 2014 when it hit the album charts in New Zealand and in the United States giving the band even further exposure and influence in a
scene filled with countless modern counterparts who struggle to deliver a similar level of intensity.
Dubbed by America’s HM Magazine as “The future of Heavy Music” Saving Grace released ‘The Urgency’ to an overwhelming response from fans and critics alike.
‘The Urgency’ saw Saving Grace nominated as a finalist at the 2014 VNZMA’s, making history yet again, with the band being the heaviest act to ever feature as a finalist at the Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards.
The band release a brand new digital single for a new track entitled ‘Recidivist’ in August 2016 alongside a music video for the track produced by Hollywood director Scott Hansen (Bury Your Dead, Asking Alexandria, A Day To Remember).
Saving Grace supported the new track with a New Zealand headline tour with special guests Set On End (Artery Recordings) and then supported New York’s Sworn Enemy and Australia’s ARIA winners Northlane immediately thereafter respectively.
Festival One 2017 marks the return of undisputed hardcore legends Saving Grace to the summer festival stage on their home turf before they to enter the studio to work on their recently announced fifth full length studio album entitled ‘Into Hell’.
