More Than Conqueror's latest single “Pits of Old” bites and kicks like a frenzied mule. Rolling, propulsive rhythms and confrontational guitar parts are welded to singer Kris Platt's densely harmonised melodies. Anthemic and forceful, “Pits of Old” sounds like a manifesto for a band confident in their sound and their identity.
Reminiscent of early British post-hardcore (Reuben, Idlewild, Biffy Clyro and Hundred Reasons) and the harmony-driven US rock of Brand New and Manchester Orchestra, More Than Conquerors still manages to find their own place amongst these behemoths.
During live performances, MTC provides an enthralling, uplifting and participatory experience for all, from the smallest of European club shows up to the bigger stages, where they've already supported the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Feeder, Dinosaur Pile Up and Twin Atlantic.
