Endure


City: Pompano Beach
Years Active: 1992-1993
Type of Music: Hardcore
Myspace or Website: n/a

This is a big one. Ive had alot of people ask me about this and here it is (special thanks to Mark Clap) finally. Endure featured members that would go on to start Strongarm and Tension. If you are a fan of Strongarm you may recognize the song "Together" which is a hidden track at the end of "The Advent of a Miracle". Well now you can hear the original version in all its glory. As far as I know, this is the only thing the band recorded before disbanding and starting their next bands. Its a shame that more people hadnt heard this because it really is a great demo. It was released on First Street Records which also released the first Tension 7 inch (Im pretty sure Mike, the singer, ran the label). Anyway, check it out and continue to check back.

God damn, did I love this tape!!
(Can I say "God damn" when talking about Endure?)

I bought this at Open Records in 1993, and fell in love.
