Stray From The Path
It is no coincidence that listeners of Stray From The Path will often have a difficult time confining them to a specific genre. The Long Island outfit, has made it a point to remain unpredictable, intricate, and intelligent. Listeners can expect their Sumerian Records debut 'Villains' to surpass the gratuitous and/or contrived music that is all too common today, and instead perform articulate songs that refuse to compromise their precision, honesty, and genuine desire to impress. Expect "Villains" to arrive in stores everywhere May 13th!
Coming from NY and naming your band after one of the best NYHC songs ever, you can figure out what to expect. These guys are around since the beginning of 2008 an already gained a lot of experience by sharing the stage with bands like Sick Of It All, SubZero, Merauder, Cro-Mags, Death Threat, Madball...
Here's a talk with them about the band, NYHC, Long Island and more. Check it out and support these guys.
Tuscaloosa, Alabama brings us Gideon, an aggressive, melodic hardcore band with an already impressive repertoire. Well-placed gang vocals and a powerful front man set Gideon apart from many of their peers, while the band as a whole, whose members have been playing together only since 2008, come off sounding like seasoned pros. Their Facedown debut "Costs" (engineered by Brian Hood) will be released on March 1, 2011 and will be supported by non stop touring including Facedown Fest in Pomona, CA (April) and Cornerstone Festival in Bushnell, IL (July).
No Bragging Rights
No Bragging Rights began to take its present shape in the summer of 2005. Since then, the 5 piece Metalcore band has self released 2 CD's (an EP and a full Length) which have collectively sold 8k+ copies World Wide.
When NBR began work on their first self released full length album, "Because You Believe…" the band was at a crossroads. Member changes and new ideas took them in a heavier, more hardcore oriented direction. The early 2006 release was well received in the local scene, and helped establish the band outside of their home town.
"The Anatomy of a Martyr" EP released in the summer of 2007, and catapulted NBR to the national stage. Relentless DIY touring grew the band exponentially and attracted the attention of Pure Noise Entertainment. The label re-released "The Anatomy of a Martyr" in 2008, and in the spring of 2009 debuted "The Consequence of Dreams" LP.

Rescuer was formed as a result of years of close friendship and a common vision. Vocalist JP Marra and drummer Chris Krause went to grade school together; after touring and performing with several other acts, they teamed up with fellow Tampa Bay musicians Danny Quinlan (guitar), Evan Miller (bass), and Michael Gorgen (guitar). The 5 piece had met while attending local shows and after forming Rescuer, wasted no time making a name for themselves in their hometown. Pooling their collective influences from bands like Envy, Modern Life Is War, and City of Caterpillar, Rescuer has formed their own brand of hardcore that feels not just fresh, but truly ambitious. They will release their Rise Records debut "With Time Comes The Comfort" later this year.
Take Heart is a Christian Hardcore Band pushing a Pro Relationship approach to Christianity. None of us are perfect or even close, but We love Jesus as our Savior and Lord, and wanna just show His Love to this World of unbelief. All while empowering and encouraging others who share our walk and faith.
Hailing from Durham, NC, Greaver fuses the rhythmic and melodic intensity of post-hardcore with raw, emotional energy commonly associated with screamo titans Suis La Lune, Pianos Become the Teeth, and Envy.
As a 5-piece, they blend a textured backdrop of dark, yet luminous melodies with the ferocity and rhythmic drive of modern hardcore. Vocalists Michael Rozier and Michael Townsel vary their vocals from intimate whispers to desperate screams when delivering their lyrics, exploring concepts of theology and grief. Completing their lineup with Sean McNaught on guitar, Eli Wray on bass, and Travis Hall on drums, Greaver’s live performances represent the intimacy of their lyrics by incorporating vocals from nearly every member, strong audience involvement, and an overall dynamic and intense energy.
Greaver’s debut album, The Faun, is due out April 29, 2016 on Cardigan Records.
