WITH HONOR will be reuniting for one of the 2 benefit shows to raise money for the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting victims. The gig will take place on February 9th at the Hungarian Club in Wallingford, Connecticut.
Also on the bill will be MY HEART TO JOY!
Formed in 2002 in the hardcore breeding grounds of Connecticut, the members of With Honor banded together to “start a fast energetic band that had something positive to say. We wanted to keep the music modern, but using older influences as well,” said guitarist Jay Aust. With Honor immediately established a solid team which consists of vocalist Todd Mackey, guitarists Jay and Jeff Aust, bass player Jack Caron and Jon Ross on drums. The band originally teamed up with Stillborn Records and released 2004’s Heart Means Everything which was extremely well received by punk and hardcore scenes alike. With Honor toured incessantly in support of the aforementioned release with bands like Hatebreed, Sick Of It All, and Comeback Kid and gained numerous fans by playing festivals like New England Metalfest, Hellfest, and Skatefest, gaining the attention of several large independent labels.
With Honor broke up in 2006, played various reunion shows/tours in 2008 and 2010, and are now reuniting once again in 2013 for this cause.
