Facedown/Strike First signs We The Gathered

Official press release:

Strike First Records is proud to welcome We The Gathered to the family.

We the Gathered formed in 2010 and have been touring on sheer tenacity for the past year. Now, having been added to the Strike First roster, the band plans to continue touring after releasing their debut full length album Believer.

The full-length delivers melodic hardcore inspired by acts like Misery Signals, The Chariot, and early Underoath; but it's the underlying, and surprising moxie that elevates this band from the throng. Hailing from Johnstown, PA, a former steel industry and city dubbed "Least likely to attract newcomers," We the Gathered have developed a posi-attitude to combat the depression of their hometown. They channel that earnestness into their live show to produce and intense, dynamic performance.

We the Gathered will release Believer on October 25.

You can hear three songs from the new album now on the band's Facebook page.
