"Torn From Red - The Heart Beat EP"

"We all die young" is the lead off single for this E.P. It's a great combination of Emo/Rock and Alternative music. The guitar is placed well throughout the disc. The vocals are pretty crisp. He has a bit of a raspy nature that borders on dirty and climbs the fence of clean at some points. It's a good match. There are plenty of things to take from this disc as well. I'll let you take them yourself. However, I can say that it's a great listen! - The Doctor's Office - Mechanicsburg, PA

"Heart Beat EP Review"

With heavily charged guitars and loud and fast drumming, this four piece from York, PA, showcase a sound that lies somehwere between MxPx, Story of the Year, and The Early November. And be warned, it's a grower, for sure. My first few spins found nothing spectacular, just another energetic punk-infused rock group with moderately loud vocals but a reasonably accessible sound. But, as I gave it one last close listen to write this review, I somehow tapped into the deeper potential of this EP. Maybe it was the great gang vocals and lead guitar on "Not Tonight" or maybe it was the slightly slower and passionate sing-along "Heart Beat". Then again, it could have been the epic crescendo at the end of "Forever" or the southern rock flavored guitar licks in "This Love". Either way, it's not a big deal what it was. What matters is only THAT it was! And, oh, how it was! For those of you who wish Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance hadn't sold out, maybe you can find a combined replacement in Torn From Red.

Take an infectious rock medley and layer it with head bangin' instrumental hooks. Add a thundering beat and match it with a highly entertaining and energetic live show and you'll see why this Pennsylvania based band keeps it's fan base growing!

As their music matures, this group of talented musicians from York, PA are going through changes with the loss of one of their original members. Bandmates Brett Shoffner and Nate Jones formed Torn From Red in 2003 and found front man Mike Landis shortly thereafter.

In early 2007, the band made it's way to Sound Mine Studios to work on what was to become their Heart Beat EP. After weeks of working on tracks such as "We All Die Young" and their title song "Heart Beat", the EP was released with a live show at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster, PA. The songs contained on the EP are powerfully driven with strong rhythms along with positive and powerful lyrics that when combined, do more than just tell a story. "The EP turned out amazing and we really found a studio that could capture the feeling of the band" says Nate Jones. "We couldn't be happier with the outcome!".

After an already impressive response to the Heart Beat EP and a change in management, this is one band to watch for in 2009! The boys have cut back severly on their show schedule as they work on new music which their fans will find reflects a return to their more traditional rock roots. They will be releasing several new songs in the first quarter of 2009 with a new - full length - CD to following later on in the year. A new deal with godiyrecords will have them at the House of Blues in May 2009!
