One Step Closer share new single/video ‘Leap Years’
Salad Days

Announce new album ‘All You Embrace’ due out May 17th via Run For Cover Records. North American Co-Headlining Tour w/ Anxious and Koyo starts today.

Leap Day only comes around once every four years, but this one marks an even more special occasion: the return of One Step Closer! Today the Wilkes-Barre melodic hardcore heroes are back with the announcement of their highly anticipated new full-length, ‘All You Embrace’. Due out May 17th from Run For Cover Records, the album boldly expands the scope of One Step Closer‘s sound, offering their most anthemic and passionate work to date. ‘All You Embrace’ follows 2021′s ‘This Place You Know’ and 2023′s ‘Songs For The Willow’, catapulted One Step Closer into the ranks of the most exciting new bands coming out of hardcore. ‘All You Embrace’ makes good on all of that potential, leaning into the most melodic elements of the band’s sound without sacrificing an ounce of energy. Today, One Step Closer fittingly shared the album’s lead single ‘Leap Years’ a blast of ultra-anthemic punk that perfectly bridges the fury of their early work and the unabashed melody of their latest chapter. ‘All You Embrace’ finds One Step Closer exploring the sonic overlaps of hardcore, emo, ’90s alternative, and more resulting in the most ambitious songs they’ve ever written. Produced/engineered by Jon Markson (Drug Church, Koyo, Drain, Regulate), the record sounds truly gigantic, like a widescreen, technicolor version of One Step Closer‘s biting sound. “I wanted to showcase One Step Closer in its fullest state” explains vocalist Ryan Savitski. “Every single part of the band, I wanted it to be there. I wanted us to be 100% ourselves and be as authentic to our band as we could possibly be.” And ‘All You Embrace’ is certainly imbued with that sense of identity, a testament to knowing who you are in a world of uncertainties, and a powerful new era for One Step Closer.
