Far From Refuge win Haverhill Arts Centre round to make BurySOUND 2020 final

Haverhill Arts Centre hosted a live and loud third heat of BurySOUND 2020 competition on February 21.

Adam Evans, Far From Refuge, In and Out Of Sleep, Phoebe Austin and Umbrella Assassins all performed for one place in the final at The Apex on March 20.

Attendees then watched a performance from guest headliner The Extons as judges voted for Far From Refuge. The ‘lunacy-driven’ Cambridge/Haverhill-based melodic death metalcore quintet will join The Daze and Leon O’Leary in the final round.
