Authenticity is key. Be yourself is the mantra.
Started in the later half of 2015, by Chris Lane (vocals) & Tom Boyd (guitar), Headrush was created for the purpose of making real & honest hardcore. Not to be dramatic. Not to be tough. And certainly not to be cool.
The duo of Boyd & Lane recorded a five song demo by themselves that would be the “Say What You Mean” EP, released October of 2015 through Delayed Gratification Records. After gaining drummer Mike White & bassist Joey Fisher, the band started playing Columbus and surrounding areas regularly. Fisher eventually departed, which brought in Trey Myers to the fill the position in the summer of 2016.
Prior to Myers addition to the band, Headrush self-released the 3 song EP titled “The Dream” on May 1st 2016, with a cassette release later on via Bum Rush Records. Following the release, the 4 piece starting embarking on weekend run and tours with the likes of Off Center, Carev Dvor, & Waste; gaining a following & a growing presence through the Midwest & the South.
In this time, Headrush signed with Little Heart Records, slated to do a release some time in 2017. Unfortunately, due to the shocking & sudden death of label owner Brian Puckett, these plans never came to fruition.
Following this period, the band pushed forward by playing more & more. Booking runs & tours with Near Death, The Jig, Insited, Waste & Capitol Offense, Headrush pushed themselves in to new areas of the country.
