New DIY label Division Street Sounds has teamed up with Not Like You Records for a new exciting release from NY band called TOO MANY VOICES. Their second LP “Catch Me If You Can” comes out on January 31st (pre-order HERE or HERE) and today we’re giving you the first listen of their new track called “Head And Heart”, a perfect example of their fresh blend of sounds inspired by Dag Nasty, 7 Seconds and the vibes of DC’s Revolution Summer.
“Hardcore for Life!”….”True ‘til Death”…..words often spoken but rarely practiced. Too Many Voices is a band that embraces its past, featuring veterans of the Long Island and New York City punk and hardcore scene with a laundry list of previous bands, while also creating music for the present and looking towards the future. Combining those LIHC and NYHC influences with the melodic hardcore that sprang from the Revolution Summer movement of the Washington, D.C. hardcore punk scene, Too Many Voices looks to move forward with something new – music with an edge and a melody – music that bites and music that moves. Music for those who know that you can’t outgrow the youthful spirit and inspiration of hardcore if you don’t let it. Music for the generation that is now.
Recorded and produced by Matt Storm at Studio G, Brooklyn and JRock Studios, NYC; 27 test presses, 80 black vinyl, 110 on color vinyl. Too Many Voices are:Eric Svirida – Vocals/guitar, Ivan Gonzalez – guitar, Jeff Kaplan – Bass, Jerry Carbone – Drums, DJ Meisse – current lead vocals.
We’re both running so fast it’s left me breathless
Throwing caution to the wind on this rainy avenue
Reaching out for a past just to be forgotten
A heart that needs to run but has only lost it’s way
How long must I battle my head and my heart?
Feeling so far from home as I’m connecting with the sky
When dissolution begins will I feel regret?
When all is said and done will we be given the chance to say goodbye?
I’m left all alone with my head and my heart

“Think Dischord Records, The Get Up Kids, Dag Nasty, and hardcore based tunes that have the right hook or groove to get your head nodding. ” – In Effect Fanzine
