Facedown Records signs Take It Back!

Official press release: Facedown Records has officially announced the signing of Take It Back! from Fayetville, Arkansas. It's rare to find a band that can successfully balance the immense responsibility of a self-imposed 'grand design' with the endless pursuit of entertainment. The ministry-minded Arkansans of Take It Back! are surely no strangers to fun as evidenced by their brand of high-energy posi-hardcore. Taking inspiration from bands such as Comeback Kid, Bane, Dogwood and Stretch Armstrong, Take It Back!'s sound strikes a chord of candor in this synthetic and often insincere industry, and honesty is what they aim for. Through their lighthearted approach to life on the road and their fun, youth-crew sound the band takes on a matter very dear to their hearts. They are here to fulfill The Great Commission; their hope is to reach people of every walk and faith. Vocalist Zack McKim says, "Our only hope for this record is that people see the love of Jesus and know that He is willing to take them at their worst." Take It Back! are always drawn back to the nucleus of their ministry and what they consider to be the touchstone of the band's formation. It was this essential quality that lead the band to Facedown Records. On signing to Facedown, McKim noted, "We've always really respected the label's bands and the stances they took in the heavy music community so we jumped at the opportunity to work with Facedown." Take It Back expect to release their Facedown debut in the summer of 2008. In the meantime, you can check them out online here.
