Hard rockers UNCURED today (March 18) have released the heavy-hitting anthem “Set The World Ablaze.” It’s taken from their third full-length album LIVING LIKE I’M DEAD and available for streaming today across all digital platforms. “Set The World Ablaze” was written on the road during the band’s previous South American tour with Lacuna Coil and influenced by fan reaction as they played it from the stage each night. Co-vocalist/guitarists and brothers Rex and Zak Cox share the story below.
“We wrote ‘Set the World Ablaze’ while touring South America as direct support to Lacuna Coil in early 2019,” shares Zak. “It is a story of how perseverance leads to success, particularly for touring musicians. We performed it live several times before recording, leading to the ‘sway’ section which captures the reaction of Brazilian fans when they heard it from the stage.” Rex adds, “It’s an entirely organic composition, reflecting real-time changes that came from writing and playing it simultaneously in front of an international audience.”

UNCURED were formed in New Jersey in 2017 by brothers Rex and Zak Cox out of a mutual love for guitars and heavy music. They have since performed over 200 shows in 14 countries with top acts such as Judas Priest, Sabaton, All That Remains, Lacuna Coil, Cradle of Filth, Soulfly, Children of Bodom, DevilDriver, Whitechapel, Dying Fetus, Katatonia and Jamey Jasta.
UNCURED’s debut album MEDUSA (2017) was named as one of AXS’ “10 Best Metal Albums of 2017.” The band released a second album in 2019, EPIDEMIC, which MetalSucks lauded for its “signature groovy riffs and hook-fuel solos” and Guitar World praised as “technically dazzling.” The band also shared a cover of Slayer’s 2001 classic hit “Disciple” which was named 2019’s ‘Cover of The Year’ by Sirius XM Liquid Metal. This was followed by their 2020 EP, UNCOVERED, which included cover songs by Pantera, Sepultura, The Beastie Boys and America.
