BLOOD & INK RECORDS is very happy to welcome NEW HEART to the Blood & Ink Records family. NEW HEART‘s Time Is Running Out EP will be available May 26th via Blood & Ink Records. Pre-orders are now available for limited edition tape and shirt packages at


Formed in 2013, Indianapolis, Indiana’s NEW HEART quickly grabbed Blood & Ink Record’s attention with their passionate, energetic style of hardcore-punk. Their debut EP, Time Is Running Out, is a total onslaught of fast, positive, old school-style straight edge hardcore. Bold references to the mid-’90’s Boston youth crew revival (Ten Yard Fight, In My Eyes) blend effortlessly with influences from earlier bands like Sick of It All and Youth of Today. Don’t sleep on this band, as NEW HEART are sure to make waves in the coming year.

NEW HEART Time Is Running Out will be available everywhere May 26th via Blood & Ink Records. Pre-orders are currently available for limited tape and shirt packages at
