Since their formation in the spring of 2005, Heart-Set Self-Destruct has quickly become a staple in chicago\'s hard rock scene. Melodic lead vocals combined with elements of punk and metal influence the band\'s heavy
driven sound. With a buzz following the band after playing a string of shows in Chicago at the Double Door, the band released the Ordinary E.P. at the end of 2005. In Febuary 2006 Heart-Set Self-Destruct made their debut on commercial radio when the song \"Unlock the Razorblades\" was featured on Q101\'s Local Mailroom after being voted on by the station\'s listeners. Three months later the band hit the road for the summer of 2006 with a successful midwest tour in support of the \"Ordinary\" E.P. before coming back home to work on their first full-length record. \"Victims Like Me\", the new full-length record by Heart-Set Self-Destruct was recorded at the Soundmine Recording Studio in East Stroudsburg, PA in January 2007. The album was successfully released on May 1st, 2007 with the band independently selling over 500 copies within the first month of release. A show at the House of Blues closed out the month with Heart-Set Self-Destruct playing in support of Lucky Boys Confusion. By November 2007, Heart-Set Self-Destruct had played over 50 shows, shot
a music video for their song \"Burn the Sky\" and sold over 1,000 copies of \"Victims Like Me.\" The success of \"Victims\" paved the way for the band to make an appearance on several Van\'s Warped Tour dates in the Summer of 2008. After several short tours of the midwest the band returned home in the Fall of 2008 to play a couple of shows before heading back into the Studio to record a follow-up to \"Victims\". The yet to be named record will be recorded in January 2009 at the Soundmine Recording Studio as the band teams up once again with producer Dan Malsch.
