I won't spend time telling you again what other bands the musicians in Bystander play, or have played in, throughout the years, but what I will say is that the lineup is comprised of tried and true hardcore lifers. Signed to Safe Inside Records (Slugfest, Dying for It), Bystander just launched the pre-order for their epoynmous debut EP and have begun playing shows, including Southern California and Tijuana dates.
With the pre-order for their 7" going live today, Bystander thought it was perfect timing to drop their new music video for "Bystander," one of the tracks from the EP. Directed by Ben at Low-Ten Studios, the video was recorded at their rehearsal space in Chicago and features friends from the local hardcore community there going off for the song.
Now that the Bystander EP is being released, the band is starting to book more live dates, including Chicago in November and a string of Midwest dates for early winter. The pre-order for the 7" is going live today via Safe Inside Records.
