1 min read

State of Mind Recordings is excited to welcome Canadian melodic hardcore punk band TWIN RIVALS to the family. The label just put their 2016 demo up on Bandcamp (listen below) and will be releasing a limited cassette very soon. Expect to see pre orders go up in a couple weeks at this location. The band will be doing a couple of shows in March and April, so be sure to check them out if you’re near (see the details below).

TWIN RIVALS is a melodic hardcore band from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Taking influence from the 90’s era of hardcore and bands like COMEBACK KID, STRIFE, and DEAD HEARTS, these guys succeeds where so many fail, in both conveying emotion, and creating a varied record and a truly engaging experience!
