Few bands embody the notion of hard work like Tampa, Florida’s Strengthen What Remains.  Since first hitting the road in 2008, not only have they continually pushed themselves to improve musically and lyrically, but they’ve also used their passion as fuel through the best and worst of times.  Anyone would be hard pressed to find a more heartfelt and genuine band in hardcore today.

Following the release of their debut full length in late 2010, Humanity via On The Attack Records, Strengthen What Remains garnered the attention of Blood & Ink Records and after seeing a string of jaw-dropping performances at Cornerstone 2011, we knew it was time for them to join the family.  The band are currently writing for their sophomore full length and Blood & Ink debut, with plans for an early 2012 release.  In the meantime, do not miss one of their incredible live shows as it’s almost guaranteed they’ll be visiting a city or town near you soon.
