Hardcore lovers from around the globe therefore had nothing but high expectations when, in the fall of 2010, MY CITY BURNING released their debut album "Lone Wolves" on legendary hardcore label I Scream Records, known for eponymous acts such as Agnostic Front, Madball, and Blood For Blood. "Lone Wolves" quickly convinced friend and foe that MCB is a force to be reckoned with in the European Hardcore scene, with reviewers describing it as: "A great debut!" (Metal Hammer), "Very intense!" (Coolibri), and "A must have for hardcore lovers" (Rock Hard).
After this release the stakes quickly got higher and MCB hit the European highways day in and day out, playing shows with major acts such as Sick Of It All, Agnostic Front and H2O, landing midtable slots on some major festivals, and supporting Blood for Blood, Pro-Pain and Earth crisis on mainland tours. Unfortunately, this proved not to come without sacrifice, as in the summer of 2011 MY CITY BURNING announced that bass-player Spit would be replaced by MCB's close friend and guitar-tech Robert, resulting in the first line-up change since their founding.
Now, five years down the road, MY CITY BURNING continues to give to audiences everywhere what they always have: an intense, and passionate live show with in-your-face music but also a positive atmosphere. A safe haven for any hardcore- or metal kid to just be themselves, to sweat out the anger but still leave with a smile.
