Crimewave Records is happy to announce the signing of Worcester, Massachusetts' Hard Target for their debut release titled 'Double Impact', which will be available on 12" Vinyl, CD, Cassette, and digital. We are very excited about their brutal new 14-track release, and couldn't have wished for a better first release to lay the foundation at our new label.
Hard Target plays heavy hardcore for fans of Terror, Power Trip, and Integrity. Hard Target is Nick Burns (vocals), Justin Edge (guitar), Micah Beshai (drums), Jeremy Edge (bass), and Alex O’Brien (guitar). Hard Target recently completed a tour with Massachusetts' Clock Out and Rhode Island's Alley Trash, and can be seen this July with Silent Drive (Worcester/Sold Out).
"Hard Target started as a threesome with Micah, Justin and Nick first jamming in early 2019. Then the pandemic hit allowing them plenty of opportunity to focus on their craft. The lineup was then completed with the additions of Jeremy and Alex allowing for their first show in May 2021. Lyrically, the band focuses on “the current state of the world." Which is to say… the incredible turbulence and uncertainty we are all up against in these, our pandemic times. The lyrical content itself, a nod to the keen perspective of a younger generation.
