Stages In Faith

Alisha Dar

Stages in Faith have been carefully crafting a post-hardcore sound in London since 2017, having learned their chops in UKHC bands such as Frame of Mind, Blind Authority, Mourning and Splitknuckle. After two 7inch singles and tours with Fiddlehead and Glitterer, Stages in Faith made an LP offering, finally housing their music on the format they were meant to be on with Delside in 2019. “Stylistically a rare masterclass of melody and restraint, Stages in Faith inhabits the moments of reflection that seem to have affected so many of the bands that worked on pulling hardcore out of drilling directness, moving the formulaic into calculated musicianship and off centred splashes of colour and emotion. Sounding like a too hot high school summer under the umbrella of Government Issue, American Standard, All, Bad Religion, Quicksand, a rumour of Southern California hardcore, and a whiff of early pop punk.
