OWN YOUR LIFE was formed in the summer 2015 by Sam,Colin and Shane who all shared a mutual love of New York hardcore and hc/metal in general. Chris was soon added to the mix and writing our own brand of hardcore quickly commenced leading up to our first show at The Cornerhouse in Cambridge in December 2015. More shows with Peterborough heavyweights Vendetta followed which saw us play Peterborough on multiple occasions and Northampton in the first half of 2016. In July JB was brought in on bass and the process of recording our debut EP began in earnest. Self financed and self recorded the EP was recorded in November. Drums were recorded in our rehearsal space with guitars , bass and vocals being completed in Chris’ parents conservatory in keeping with the DIY ethics of hardcore. More shows followed in Lincoln, Norwich and London which led to us being introduced to Mark My Words Records who kindly agreed to release our EP in physical format. February 2017 brought as well a small change in the band – Tom replaced Colin on guitar.
