COMPANION is a five-piece hardcore band based out of Vienna, Austria. Since their establishment in 2012 the band has constantly moved ahead and developed their skills. COMPANION has a sound & style that stands out through their groovy & crushing guitar sound, powerful drums, a rich bass feel combined with brutal vocals. Put all this together & you get a band that delivers heavy and powerful hardcore delivered from the heart that won't allow you to keep still.
COMPANION was born in the summer of 2012. The first demo “What Keeps Us Alive” was recorded and released shortly after their establishment & was quickly followed by several shows in Austria and surrounding countries.
In the late fall of 2013, further songs were recorded by Origin Audio for the second EP “You Are Not On Your Own” which was released by Burnside Records(Vienna) in March 2014. Shortly after this Companion became a proud member of the Vienna Style Hardcore Family which they remain very strongly connected to ever since.
The debut full length album “For The Underdogs” was released in July 2015 by Burnside Records Vienna which was followed up with them taking their spot alongside fellow VSHC bands Only Attitude Counts & Spidercrew on the “VSHC Brotherhood Tour 2015” which travelled it’s way right across Europe delivering their unique brand of hardcore. This was the perfect chance to promote the album & show fans what they are capable of on stage with their highly energetic & super heavy live performances.
Besides this tour the band has played various festivals and club shows in different spots throughout Europe.
On June 2nd 2017 their new record titled "UNBROKEN" was released by Australain label 10-54 Records.
