North Korea (stylized as 'NK') are a band formed in the
aftermath of the Envy On The Coast breakup in 2010.
Made up of vocalist Ryan Hunter and guitarist Brian
Byrne (both ex- Envy on the Coast), and bassist Michael
Sadis and drummer Billy Rymer (both of The Rivalry, with
Rymer also in The Dillinger Escape Plan), it seems North
Korea play a brand of southern-influenced post-
hardcore. Sadis and Rymer had started it off by creating
demos of just the bass and the drums. Byrne was then
given the demos to add guitar work. From there, Hunter
was given the opportunity to add his praised vocal work,
thus finishing the creation of North Korea.
The band has no label, and are currently "playing to play",
releasing music whenever necessary.
