Solid State Records,
set date for release
The Williamsport, PA-based act hails from the same geographic region and musical circles that spawned a number of metalcore successes in recent years – most notably genre giants AUGUST BURNS RED, in addition to the likes of TEXAS IN JULY (Equal Vision) and THIS OR THE APOCALYPSE (eOne Entertainment). While a less confident band may look to steal a page or two out of those artists’ playbooks, MY HEART TO FEAR are intent on forging their own sound.
“When we write music we don’t stick to any one formula,” explains vocalist Trevor Pool. “We don’t write to please a certain group of people or to fit into specific genres. Nor do we sit down with a preconceived idea of what a song should or should not sound like. Instead we allow the music itself to reveal subconscious and spiritual paths. Rather than deriving inspiration solely from music, we find influence in the world around us and aim to transpose these non-musical entities into the musical aspects of a song.”
With the release of Lost Between Brilliance and Insanity, MY HEART TO FEAR stand as a sterling example of a band whose work ethic and persistence on an independent level has paid off.
“We want to encourage everyone to not just shoot for their dreams, but to fight relentlessly for them,” says Pool. “We could not have made it this far in our journey without the endless support of those around us.”
