Hailing from all over Southern California,
Force of Change is a straight edge hardcore band, built on the ideals
and ethics of the bands that came before them. Paying tribute to
all those that inspired them over the years to pick up instruments,
book shows, X up, scream their lungs out, sleep on stranger's floors,
and then wake up and do it all over again the next day.
xForcex was born in the summer of '05
when singer, Dave Richardson, and guitarist, Ryan Nelson, decided
that there was a lack of fast heavy straight edge hardcore in the
vein of bands that got them into this music like Judge, A Chorus
of Disapproval, and Strife. Too many bands were concerned with "crossing
over" or collecting shoes and that exciting feeling and message
that had once encompassed hardcore was rapidly escaping a scene
moving forward while forgetting where it came from.
Quickly assembling a group of close friends
who shared the same ideas and values the group was rounded out by
guitarist, Nick Piunno; bassist, Sam Robertson; and drummer, Rollie
Ulug. The band started writing, recording, and playing shows right
away so to not loose any time. As a result, that sense of urgency
can be felt in their music. It is also conveyed in their lyrics
about friendships, personal struggle, and social issues.
xForcex is a fast heavy hardcore band
reminiscent of past greats. Their goal is to play, have fun, and
keep the spirit alive.
