Melodic hardcore from Bournemouth here in the UK.
The vocalist used to be/is in Trigger the Bloodshed I think, never listened to them though.

Thoughts?

Bunch of dickheads with a terrible attitude playing bad music. Shit live too.

Definitely Hardcore, Sounds promissing. Still for as far as i hear it, It sounds like: "Been there, done that". In my opinion it sounds decent only thing is they have to stand out a bit more. more of an unique and original sound.

I'm not really a big fan of this.

Its sounds too much like he's yelling the entire song in Only Memories. Like I actually think that the first semi-scream that he actually does is at like 1:28.

Sorry, it's just not something that I can see myself getting into.

i quite like them, i played with them a couple of times in stoke and they came back to my house for a party and we ended up in the front room watching porn it was sick
i remember first listening to them the day we stare at mirrors split up and i was proper stoned and getting married in vegas played and i loved it
they've found their own sound definitely, albeit taking influences from metalcore so there's some parts which are kind of 'eh' but i generally think they're a good band. becoming too 'trendy' though which is going to ruin them i think. their new album has some sick songs on it, although ghosts and indelible mistakes are definitely the best they've done

Even though you're obviously trolling, I'm going to go ahead and explain myself anyway.

They came up here with It Prevails and played a really shitty set during which their singer got really pissy because nobody was going mental for them (probably because they weren't that good). I felt a little sorry for them though, so when the singer and his friend with really skinny arms who follows him around the country came up to my friend and I outside we were nice to them and said they were good etc, and he just went into a big rant about how "if this was in Southampton there would have been kids going nuts for that set. fuck this place" while still trying to act like we were best friends. Everyone has bad shows, but there's no excuse for being a dick and expecting every show of a tour to be like playing in your hometown.

Either way, we pointed them to the club they were looking for, and they all went out, got in fights (probably for keeping up that attitude), got arrested and had to cancel shows because half of them were held in custody in Aberdeen.

Bullshit band, and their music is nowhere near hardcore punk.

You'd think that considering this is a hardcore forum, people would know the difference between hardcore and chuggy nu-metalcore bullshit trying to cash in on hardcore culture without having any facets of it.

But obviously not. Also, this band sucks.

I thought the whole idea of post-hardcore was to mix techno and hardcore.....

Living down near Bournemouth/Southampton I can honestly say they wouldn't get a massive crowd. I know a lot of guys (and girls) who are into hardcore and such, none of them like this band.

Personally, I think the instrumental is alright but the vocals are lacking, but I can see why they aren't hugely popular.

I have heard that they get a lot of shit at home from people I know down there, but regardless, I'm not going to assume they don't draw a crowd. They're just about the most hyped band in the UK and they have a huge amount of 15 year old girls going nuts over them. So....

Agreed. Personally I find their presence to be quite annoying as many people seem to think Heart In Hand are the best Bournemouth has to offer in terms of the hardcore scene. I've seen quite a few bands who've been around only a few months that sound a lot better than HIH but they don't get much credit for what they do.

not being an arse, but when hardcore punk came about it was possibly the most violent thing to go and see!
you also can't really burn them for taking someone on tour with them. when i went on a weekender we took one our mates and we take him to nearly all our shows out of the hometown. guarantees someone there will actually know the music and try to get things going, as gay as that sounded. and also he's useful for selling merch

I don't have a problem with them taking their friend on tour, most bands do that. My problem is that said friend just follows Charlie around literally everywhere and seems to be there just to nod in the background and laugh at his jokes. And he did nothing at the show except stand around near the band while they played trying to look important. I think he did do merch, but still - he acted like a twat the whole night.

Also, how violent some strains of hardcore punk may be or may have been is irrelevant: when a scene kid nu-metalcore band goes out and acts like a bunch of dickheads and ends up in a fight, that doesn't make them become a hardcore band.

Danny is spot on in this thread, Heart in Hand are absurdly overhyped for what they are, and just attract the current wave of "scene kids". The music is generic and chuggy, the vocals are airy and weak, and the band are about as tight live as an XXXL tee on a 4 year old dwarf.

I like Heart in Hand, but also realize that they're trying to be a Ghost Inside meets It Prevails rip off.
