This Can Hurt was founded by the end of 2015 in Ghent (BE). The band started out as a 100% studio project with only one goal: “Create music without limitations”

After a year of intense songwriting the debut album “Nothing Matters” hit the shelves in March 2017. The album turned out to be a mixture of Rock, Wave, Industrial and even popmusic. Several reviewers praised the band for having an international standard, throwing in references to the likes of Muse, Nine Inch Nails, Type O Negative, Deftones, Massive Attack, Sisters Of Mercy…

By mid 2019 This Can Hurt started recording the songs for what would become the successor to ‘Nothing Matters’. By the end of september 12 songs were selected, recorded, mixed and mastered. ‘Worlds Apart’ was set for release.
The band released a limited batch of 200 vinyls on their own ‘Lacienda’ label which was sold out in a mere 2 weeks, giving the band an opportunity to negotiate with several record labels.

On the last day of 2019 This can Hurt signed a worldwide deal with UK-based Glasstone Records who is remastering the album as we speak. “Worlds Apart” was released through Glasstone Recs May 5th 2020

During the ungoing pandemic, the band started working on a 3rd full album which is nearly finished as we speak.  Due to the uncertain times we live in the band decide to put the release of the album on hold and started working on a 5-track semi acoustic EP which will be released by the beginning of April 2022

The band decided to not renew the collaboration with Glasstone Records because fo Brexit and is currently negotiating with a few labels on the European mainland.

To be continued… for sure!
