Within the Ruins is an American metalcore band from Westfield, Massachusetts. They are currently signed to E1 Music and Good Fight Music.[1] The group has released four albums and three EPs.


Within the Ruins founding members John Grande (vocals) and Kevin "Drummer" McGuill started the band during the summer of 2003. The band went through some line-up changes and finally began working on their first self released EP entitled Driven By Fear which was completed in 2005. Followed by the release, the band began touring in late 2006 in an effort to gain exposure and label recognition. With the release of their second EP Empires through Innerstrength Records the band received an offer from Victory Records. The band's debut album Creature was released in February 2009, followed by their second official release entitled Invade. Invade was released in September 2010, selling over 3000 copies in its first week. The band has most recently toured Europe with Carnifex and has been part of a number of 2011-12 festivals thus far including The Bonecrusher Fest, The Jamboree, New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, The Bamboozle, South by Southwest and 2011's The Summer Slaughter Tour. In support of The Summer Slaughter Tour the band has released a 4 song EP entitled Omen. The EP consists of 2 new original songs and a cover of Metallica's "Fight Fire With Fire" and Kansas' "Carry On Wayward Son". In 2013 the band signed with new label eOne Entertainment and released a third album called Elite. Then again, in 2014, the band released a fourth album entitled Phenomena.
