From Ruins are the epitome of a modern metal band. Formed in the spring of 2023, the Northern Ireland-based 5-piece outfit are determined to plant their flag on the musical map and establish a reputation for soaring vocals, gripping melodies and hard-hitting riffs.


Hate Me

Following on from their debut release comes Hate Me, From Ruins’ second single. Maintaining the hard edge and dark theme established by Running Away while introducing electronic elements and an epic finale, Hate Me places the band’s versatility on full display.

“Some may find Hate Me to be a bit of a divergence in style from our first single as we’ve tried to show a different side to our arsenal. But don’t worry, because it hits just as hard!” says drummer David Patton

The single artwork was created by the band’s artist-in-residence, guitarist Neil Anderson.

Hate Me is available to stream and download from your preferred service on September 8th, 2023.

Debut Single

Running Away

From Ruins are pleased to unveil their debut single, Running Away.

Fuelled by aggression from start to finish, the lyrics have a dark and sinister nature and deliver a message which is unrelenting in tone. Frontman Niall O’Kane explains: “The song is a f**k you to all the users and abusers out there, whilst opening the lid on some of the abuse that I’ve had to face and the battles I have with my inner demons.” 

The single artwork was created by guitarist Neil Anderson, perfectly illustrating the lyrical themes of mental turmoil.

Running Away is available to stream and download from your preferred service on July 14th, 2023.
