Strike Hard is a five-piece melodic hardcore band founded in Connecticut in 2010. Originally a four-piece, the band started off with a 3 song demo and immediately began playing shows all over New England. From appearing with local favorites like Manners, Currents and Endless to sharing the stage with larger acts such as Emmure, The Acacia Strain and Hatebreed, Strike Hard has endured a music scene which has seen many others come and go. In October 2014, the band officially signed their first deal with Purebred Records.
Over their 5+ year span, the band has seen a significant shift in musical style from a heavier beatdown sound to a faster, more melodic and authentic blend of hardcore genres. Citing influences such as Bury Your Dead, The Ghost Inside, Stick To Your Guns, the band headed into the studio in late 2013 and well into 2014 to complete the recording for their latest release and first full-length album "The Antagonist".
To date, Strike Hard has released 2 EPs, 1 full length record and has played over 200 shows. In late 2015, the band will be planning their official album release for "The Antagonist" and will be looking to tour soon after.
