Roadrunner Records may have just won the award for signing the worst band name in 2012. Heartist, who seems to have only been a legitimate band since early 2012, have joined the legendary rock label’s roster with plans to release their debut EP later this Fall. Their sound is a concoction of the progressive heavy sing/scream sound that Warped Tour kids have clung to in recent years mixed with what sounds like a watered down version of Periphery. You can stream their debut single, “Disconnected,” via a Youtube clip found after the jump.
After you give Heartist a moment of your time, comment below and let us know if you feel these guys have a future in hard rock.
