Take Warning is charging full speed ahead with their debut release "Leaving Here Tomorrow". This EP is like a candle in the dark, something very unexpected in the genres of hardcore and punk. In a sea of single file robotic hardcore and punk bands that seem to all produce the same output as every other band, Take Warning has set out to defy the status quo and create something new, or rather to re-create the individualistic integrity of punk rock greats of the past. "Leaving Here Tomorrow" will challenge you to believe a band is trying to sound like themselves. You'll hear many classic styles all wrapped up in one short and sweet 5 song EP. You'll catch chords and picking patterns that closely resemble what The Ramones did 20 years ago, and you'll be able to pick out the heavy chord chugs of todays hardcore bands like Terror and Comeback Kid. If you like fast classic hardcore, you'll get hooked by raging chord progressions in the vain of Minor Threat and Dag Nasty. For those who are more into bands like Samiam and Jimmy Eat World listen for the melodic riffs and musical vocals. To conclude this bit, we're going to have to disclose that Take Warning can sound way too similiar to hardcore legends Ignite. There aren't many bands that can pull off playing hardcore at a million miles an hour while keeping melodic vocals leading the rage. Order this record now- you will not be let down!
Take Warning is a Melodic Punk/Hardcore band from Santa Cruz, CA. Their sound draws from a vast array of punk sub-genres from pop punk bands like The Ramones to heavy hitting stage leveling hardcore bands like Terror. The vocals stay melodic, ever-changing and in your face, capturing your spirit through every punk soundscape the band moves through. The most common band Take Warning is said to sound like is Ignite, or Strung Out. TW prefers to state that they pull ideas from these bands, but mostly from bands like Lagwagon, Dag Nasty, Fury66, Samiam, Comeback Kid, Lifetime, Terror, Minor Threat, Cro-Mags, Bouncing Souls, Gorilla Biscuits, and Good Riddance. In a time when its hard to listen to a record all the way through without feeling like you're listening to the same song over and over, Take Warning will clear the path, tearing down all boundaries to set a new standard in writing and performing as a punk band. These kids set out to do something original while paying tribute to all who came before them.
