xLOOKING FORWARDx officially formed during September ’99 in Bel Air, Maryland, featuring its current lineup of Justin (vocals), Josh (guitar), Kevin D. (bass), and Kevin O. (drums). But their history is much deeper… Justin and Josh are brothers, and Kevin D. is their cousin. Kevin O. hooked up with the guys after seeing Josh’s old band, DENIHIL, play in 1995… he has been like family since.
xLOOKING FORWARDx recorded their first demo in May of 2000, 1117, followed by Ahoy Crew Members on DFF Records. Their Blood & Ink debut release, What This Means To Me, is a total onslaught of fast, positive, old school-style straight edge hardcore, full of catchy sing-alongs. This classic album has been reissued with all new artwork by the legendary Dave Quiggle and including a bonus feature-length DVD!
