Take It To Heart - 'Hymns For The Hopeless'
Forming in the summer of 2019, Take It To Heart is among a new wave of socal hardcore proudly carrying the Orange County banner. Drawing from bands like Bane, Comeback Kid, and Killing The Dream, the band brings the emotive fury of the early 2000’s into the modern era. In early 2020, they appeared on the local scene with their debut EP The Brighter Side, joining the ranks of Safe Inside Records shortly after. 2021 saw Take It To Heart return to live shows post-pandemic with the rest of hardcore, cutting their teeth opening for acts such as Dare, Berthold City, and the UK’s own Higher Power.
During this time, the band also wrote and recorded their upcoming sophomore effort Hymns For The Hopeless. Expanding on their previous work, it delivers a fusion of melancholy melody and unrelenting pace in a neat but dynamic 6-track package. Hymns runs the sonic gamut of the era it reflects - from emotional stage-dive anthems to dissonant metallic precision. The record is slated to drop digitally through Safe Inside mid-August, physical formats to be made available later on in the year.
