Emerging from the heart of the Orange County hardcore scene,
Strength Behind Tears has been at the cusp of musical progression since their conception. Don't be fooled, Strength Behind Tears is no ordinary "hardcore" band. Each member of the group brings their own unique influences into the mix to ensure a sound unlike that of any other traditional hardcore band. While the notable heavy guitars, thundering bass, blistering drums and angst driven vocals are in place, it's the breakdowns, harmonies, thought provoking lyrics and well thought out instrumental parts that take these songs and this band into a direction that could be crossed over into any number of other genres.
If the music doesnt speak for itself then Strength Behind Tears have made sure to always place themselves a cut above the rest when it comes to their stage presence and high energy performance every time they play. They have shared the stage with such national acts as: Scars Of Tomorrow, Death Star, Undying, If Hope Dies, Animosity, The Hoods, The Program, As Hope Dies and many more. Willing and able to play at any and all costs they have spent the last couple of years filling gigs and tours with all genres of bands and building a fan base that most bands would take a lifetime to acheive. Having done a national tour in the Summer of 2006 as well as venturing into Mexico to an overwhelming respose. Strength Behind Tears signed with Basement Records in December 2006 and have embarked on a spring tour to wet the appetite of their growing fanbase in anticipation of their debut full length "Bridges Between Us".
Having completed the new 10 track disc, a full summer tour and numerous other activites (recently landing a sponsorship from Nephlam clothing) 2007 is sure to be a busy year. The band recently finished shooting their first music video for the song "On Your Back Or On Your Feet" Strength Behind Tears is completely devoted to the music they create and those who take time to listen. You will not find a band as passionate or devoted to what they do as Strength Behind Tears.
