Since Yesterday

BiografieSince Yesterday came to life in 2002 as a project of two friends blending punk, metal and hardcore all together. The band focused on writing their own material from the very beginning. The name immediately spread around the country in 2003 as a result of the first two demos "Maybe Tomorrow" and "These Words Are How You Bled From My Wrists" being released. The interest in the band's music became international with both demos spreading to four continents. Together with the recognition and success, the band began playing every possible show, while also writing down new stuff. Two split-demos followed in the next two years, first one with In Between, another Turkish band in 2004 and then a four way split with Planes Mistaken For Stars (USA), Candy Sniper (UK) and In Between in 2005. After releasing "It's Time To Move On My Dear" in 2006, a multimedia demo and "The Art Of Eremophobia" in 2007 the band started to take stage at major festivals in Turkey and shared the stage with the likes of Terror (USA), Destruction (GER), UDO (GER), A New Hope (GER), Madball (USA), Machinemade God (GER), Last Hope (BUL) and more.

April 2008 became a turning point for Since Yesterday when they hosted three legs of Horse The Band's (USA) Earth Tour in Turkey. After those gigs, the band decided that they were now mature enough to write down their first full length album and began to work accordingly. With the new tunes coming to existence, Since Yesterday was convinced that it was time for a Turkish band from the metal/hardcore scene to finally show the courage, cross the borders of the country and release the album worldwide.

The rest is history still being written. Many major producers showed interest in the new tunes and the band choose to work with Will Putney from The Machine Shop Productions, who believed in the band and was kind enough to come all the way from New Jersey to Ankara to record and produce the album. He flew back with the material to mix and master the record at his own studios. In the mean time, another international superstar in his art, Derek Hess was busy with creating the album's artwork and what a job he did!
