One Step Closer (US), Magnitude (US), Next Step Down (D), Belief (D) und Force Of Denial (D).
In just five short years, One Step Closer have become a modern Hardcore mainstay. One Step Closer formed in 2016 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, with Ryan Savitski and his bandmates - currently guitarist Grady Allen, drummer Tommy Norton, bassist Brian Taliban, guitarist Ross Thompson - revering the unusually melancholic, forward-thinking youth crew Hardcore acts of both the genre’s classic era and ones later into the mid-2000’s.
The quintet soon dropped a raw demo, then made a splash with a self-titled EP in 2017 and gathered buzz amid regional touring. But it was 2019’s “From Me To You“ that truly took the contemporary Hardcore world by storm. The fiery EP countered existing trends in exchange for a more melodic sound, essentially completing the band’s progression from scrappy, growling you crew act to a well-rounded, heartstring-tugging emotional Hardcore powerhouse - an evolution not unlike that of their beloved genre ancestors Turning Point. It was the type of dramatic-yet-aggressive Hardcore largely not heard in over a decade: musically heavy and well-recorded, but also poetic and progressive in feel and subject matter. The band were suddenly being tapped for every notable Hardcore fest in the U.S., receiving the crowd reactions to warrant it, and finding themselves on tours supporting major acts like Have Heart, Turnstile, Knuckle Puck and Defeater.
