Take This To Heart Records have announced the signing of Locket from Austin, TX. “Locket’s brand of post-punk/hardcore/rock is something we have yet to delve into here at Take This To Heart Records and we are beyond excited to do so!”
You can grab Locket’s self-titled EP for free on Bandcamp here (stream below), and catch them Wednesday, February 3rd playing with Capsize (Equal Vision Records) at Dirty Dogbar in Austin, TX.
Austin, Texas based rock/post-punk band Locket take influences from an extensive amount of bands. Ranging from the harder side of La Dispute and Mewithoutyou but, not limiting themselves to more melodic driven bands such as Glassjaw and Brand New. Locket’s all out vocal assault and driving guitars blend eloquently with their pulsing drums as they seamlessly switch from loud to quiet and then back again.
These longtime friends intend to capture the raw emotion of the music that helped shape who they are today. Formed in 2014, and with only word of mouth, DIY booking, and no actual release of music, the band quickly filled local and regional lineups and built relationships and networks with bands and fans. An honest excitement was being built that was reminiscent of bands that helped build our youth.
