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 thing in mind: “there’s no limit when it comes to crossing genres”
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, Metal, Wave & Industrial. 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 for the Worlds Apart
During the pandemic, the band started working on a 3rd full album which is nearly finished as we
speak. Due to the uncertain times the band decided to put the release of the full album on hold and
started working on a 5-track semi-acoustic EP which was released on Hallows Eve 2022.
This Can Hurt is planning the release of their 3rd Album ‘Mikaela’ in October 2023, followed by
extensive touring. This summer you’ll be one of the first to hear a bunch of songs from the upcoming
album… and they’ll rock your socks!
So here we are…to be continued… for sure!
