Post-hardcore outfit Secrets has been steadily on the rise with a dynamic hybrid sound that combines the ferocity of metalcore with the melodic sensibility of pop punk. In the span of a single song the band manages to cover a staggering range of territory, blazing through soaring and emotional verses before plunging headfirst into distorted, snarling hardcore breakdowns. Whether they're playing the thrash-worthy "Ready for Repair" or the anthemic "Somewhere in Hiding", Secrets deliver their complex yet catchy songs with a tautness and energy that always leave ticket buyers wanting more.
San Diego, CA-based Secrets formed in 2010 when several former members of the band A City Serene joined forces with singer and rhythm guitarist Richard Rogers. The band hit the ground running, signing with Rise Records in 2011 and releasing their debut album The Ascent the following year. The record peaked at No. 3 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart, drawing the band out for extensive touring alongside acts like Sleeping With Sirens and Escape the Fate. They followed up in 2013 with their sophomore album Fragile Figures, which reached No. 13 on the Independent Albums chart thanks to several high-octane singles. A hotly anticipated stint on the 2014 Vans Warped Tour followed, and the band's adrenaline-filled performances on the road further boosted their popularity. With their stellar blend of hard-hitting technical chops and radio-friendly hooks, Secrets are well on their way to post-hardcore stardom.
