(hed)PE

The quest to uncover the truth has given California-based hardcore pioneers (Hed)p.e. new life. While the band has weathered the stormy waters of the music business for over a decade and enjoyed a slew of successful albums, it's their quest for answers that has given them purpose. Now with the release of their eighth studio album, "Truth Rising", (Hed)p.e have become the voice for a movement that empowers youth and reveals the seedy underbelly of our current political affairs.

While early (Hed)p.e. albums found the group mixed up in the rock n' roll lifestyle, they were reborn after aligning themselves with California based Suburban Noize Records. The group's first release under the partnership was 2006's "Back 2 Base X", which saw (Hed)p.e. adopting a socio-political mindset and picked up the torch that giants like Rage Against The Machine had once carried. Since then (Hed)p.e. has been embraced by underground music fans all across the globe who don't subscribe to mainstream trends. (Hed)p.e's grassroots rebirth has given the band the biggest success of their career, as their 2007 release "Insomnia" charted at #138 on the Billboard Top 200, and 2009's "New World Orphans" jumped to #72, proving that the group's movement continues to grow.

"I believe (Hed)p.e's longevity is due to the fact that our records than more than just music," concludes Jahred. "Some of the greatest artists have used their music for social commentary. Bands like Rage Against the Machine, System of a Down, Sex Pistols, and The Clash, have all empowered their fans to rise up to fight injustice. Since we've got involved with The Truth Movement, I've heard from thousands of fans who are excited that we're using our music to explore things other than girl and boy problems. The best bands use their music for more than dancing and getting wasted."

With the release of "Truth Rising" (Hed)pe has their sights firmly set on the New World Order and they are using their brand of hardcore to bring it down. While early (Hed)pe albums found them mixed up in the rock n' roll lifestyle, the group have been reborn to become the voice for a movement that empowers the youth and uncovers the seedy underbelly of current political affairs. Always pushing the envelope, (Hed)pe stays true to form on their new album and earmark it with their signature brand of raunchy tracks to round out the mix.
