7Years band was born on September 2001 in Livorno, Italy. After a couple of months Matteo, Diego, Marco and Chico recorded their first self titled promo, 5 melodic hardcore songs with something more, and this work had many good reviews from the most important Italian webzines.
They started to play all around Italy, and even if it was really difficult to rise inside the alternative Italian scene, 7Years became a well known name for many kids. They had a lot of shows with important Italian bands like Seed’n’feed, Vanilla Sky and Beerbong and supported foreign and famous bands like SHELTER, LAGWAGON, UNDECLINABLE, TEN FOOT POLE, JOEY CAPE, ME WITHOUT YOU, THE GHOST, BELVEDERE, PULLEY, USELESS ID, TED LEO & The Pharmacists, FURTHER SEEMS FOREVER, ANTILLECTUAL and ZEBRAHEAD. A lot of compilations, a split EP with their special friends Seed’n’feed in 2003, an European tour in Germany, Austria and Slovenia and then the new album “Shape without form” is released in 2004. Jasper (Undeclinable Ambuscade) is special guest on the song “Sugar-loaf hats”. With the support of Wynona Records staff those guys got in contact with Japanese label CR JAPAN/Disk UNION for a solid distribution of their new album in the country of rising sun.
The album “Photograms” was released on February 2007, produced by 7Years, distributed in Japan by Disk Union again.
