Strike First Records is proud to welcome We The Gathered to the family.
We the Gathered formed in 2010 and have been touring on sheer tenacity for the past year. Now, having been added to the Strike First roster, the band plans to continue touring after releasing their debut full length album Believer.
The full length delivers melodic hardcore inspired by acts like Misery Signals, The Chariot, and early Underoath; but it’s the underlying, and surprising moxie that elevates this band from the throng. Hailing from Johnstown, PA, a former steel industry and city dubbed “Least likely to attract newcomers,” We the Gathered have developed a posi-attitude to combat the depression of their hometown. They channel that earnestness into their live show to produce and intense, dynamic performance.
We the Gathered will release Believer on October 25. You can pre-order the album now. http://facedown.merchnow.com/
You can hear three songs from the new album now on the band’s Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/wethegathered

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
