SO WHAT'S THE BIG FUSS?
Strike of the Heart formed less than a year ago and have garnered success with multiple "Battle of the Bands" and playing gigs around the Philadelphia and New York areas. In August of 2007, the band released its eight-track debut EP, Strike of the Heart which is available on iTunes
and has sold hundreds of copies.
Founded early in 2007, Strike of the Heart are a power-pop group hailing from New Hope, Pennsylvania. The goal of their music is simple: create something sincere while evading the adulterated pretensions that weigh down so many bands' music.
Leading up to the release of the EP, the band played shows in New York City and also won a Battle of the Bands at the Trocadero in Philadelphia, beating out dozens of other unsigned bands from around the area. Past winners of this contest include The Early November, and Days Away. Other gigs have included charity events such as Alex's Lemonade Stand and Relay for Life around the Philadelphia area.
More recently they have opened for bands Crash Romeo and Rookie of the Year. They just finished recording a brand new promo demo which is available for your listening pleasure here on our PureVolume page.
