“If you hold long-gone Philly punks Kid Dynamite as one of the pinnacles of hook-laden, hardcore-infused punk rock, then Rest Easy are here to help you out…a furious blast of old-school goodness.”- Kerrang!
“A rippin’ dose of melodic hardcore.”- Brooklynvegan

Vancouver punk rock 4-piece Rest Easy (consisting of members of Daggermouth and Shook Ones) have announced a new album titled ‘Hope You’re Okay,’ set for release on October 28 on Mutant League Records.
The band has unveiled the first single “The Hill” along with a music video. Check them out below.
Of the track, vocalist Dylan Hossack explains, “I feel like everyone over the last few years has lost touch with a friend or family member because of different views or beliefs, whatever they may be. I wrote this song about how, even when we think we are so in the right- we are all a product of our own echo chambers.”
‘Hope You’re Okay” was produced by Tim Creviston (Spiritbox, Misery Signals) and mixed by Brett Romnes (Brand New, The Movielife).
