"Richmond hardcore torchbearers BREAK AWAY are back with their sophomore LP, Cross My Heart, available now from REACT! Records. In a scene dominated by seasonal acts and disposable demos, where releasing even one full length is a noteworthy achievement, Break Away have established themselves as a focused, prolific and stalwart band dead set on leaving a lasting impact. On Cross My Heart, Break Away delivers exactly what you'd hope from a true straight edge hardcore band-- power, speed, and passion. Vocalist Ace Stallings explores the enduring duality of hardcore, the balance of aggression and introspection, asking "was I made for war, or made to create?" If Cross My Heart is any indication, the answer is both."
