Wounds is brothers Aidan and James Coogan, Aaron McGrath and Craig McCann, influenced by The Stooges, Every Time I Die, Amen and Nine Inch Nails. They released their debut EP 'Dead Dead Fucking Dead' in 2010 with rave reviews from Kerrang (KKKK) and Rock Sound (8/10). With a blistering live show, the band then toured with Gallows, Cancer Bats and Crime in Stereo in support of the release.
Work began on their album shortly after but was cut short when guitarist James fell 4 stories from a balcony and spent 3 months on life support. After what seemed like a miracle of a recovery and a painful summer for all involved, James pulled through. Wounds picked up where they left off, continued working on the album and to support each other throughout.
While a lot of Aidan's lyrics and the bands music were inspired by this struggle, Wounds are all about having a good time and leaving the shitty past behind, and with the debut album 'Die Young' finally complete they are ready to go on the road and tear every venue, bar and toilet apart.
With Die Young scheduled for a January release, 2013 will be the year of Wounds
