Orange County, California is known as the birthplace of many classic hardcore bands. Take It To Heart is one of The OC’s newest offerings, who formed in the summer of 2019, with the goal of pursuing the fast and emotive sounds of the early 2000s-style melodic hardcore.
While firmly rooted in the traditions of west coast tenacity, brought to you by groups like Chain of Strength and Carry On, the band also draws inspiration from the opposite coast via Boston hardcore stalwarts Have Heart, American Nightmare, and Bane.
On the heels of their earnest debut EP, The Brighter Side, the band looks to solidify a place within the next generation of Orange County hardcore, complimented by their partnership with San Diego, CA-based label, Safe Inside Records, who will be releasing the EP on a flexi disc in late 2020 and a one-sided LP in 2021.
We are all hoping for a safe return to live performances in 2021, which will allow the band to embark on their first tours in support of their releases.
