WOW!  This page hasn't been updated in forever.

We put out a full length record.  Not on GlassNail records... that label didn't work out and we don't really agree with the sentiments expressed in the post below.  

We put out the record on reveille records.  Bill rules.  You can buy it by following the link under merch, or going here:

Summer 2012 Update !!

Summer is rolling by once again, but we’re staying super active in the TIYL camp slinging out new merch and playing basement after basement. Our debut full-length ‘Before We Fade Away’ drops August 3rd digitally, and September 4th on vinyl via Glass Nail Records. Kenneth is a great dude, so make sure you support this awesome up and coming label. August will see us back in the northeast for a 10 day romp through New England, hitting favorite spots and exploring new territory. Check out our new shirts in the merch bin, come out to a show, and get stoked on our new record! Can’t wait for you to hear it.


P.S. here is a full-stream of our set at the A Wilhelm Scream show last week. Lots of new songs played!

News and stuff

Summer was great, but unfortunately we had to say goodbye to our bassist Kenny.  Tour was the most fun ever and our bud James from Hold Tight! was nice enough to fill in on bass for us.  Check out our tour updates over at our TUMBLR page.  We did a small run of screen printed t-shirts for tour and those that are left over have been added to the merch section of our store. "Check them out!!"

We would also like to welcome Chris Pierce to the band as our new bassist.  The dude rips so be sure to check out an upcoming show and say hi to him!  Schenning moved from FL to RVA after tour which means there will be a lot more TIYL going on in the upcoming near future.  We are currently in the process of writing for our upcoming full length, we hope to record it early next year.  More shows will be added soon, so keep checking back.

Press, Reviews, and such...

...on the evidence here This Is Your Life have done quite a good job at representing themselves. With the twin guitars working well in tandem, this is the main focus alongside the vocals whilst the rhythm section provides the furious structure for the songs to come together in an effective way."                (02/14/2012)

"Blending old school hardcore with a modern take on melody and guitar work, This Is Your Life are inches away from breaking out..."                                                                              Under the Gun Review (10/06/2010)


"This is Your Life plays passionate hardcore with plenty of melodies and gang vocals, kind of reminding me of a mix between A Wilhelm Scream and Comeback Kid.  ...I was completely blown away by their aggressive, high energy set."                                                                                                                            Battle of the Midwestern Housewives (12/16/2010)
