Aggression and melody have been staples of both pop-punk and hardcore since the late 1980s. Connecticut's the Distance have this edict etched onto the backs of their instruments, and it shows on their album, THE RISE, THE FALL, AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. Adopting elements of the lockstep sound championed by Bad Religion, as well as some of the palm-muted avant-hardcore chunks of groups like Drive Like Jehu and Hot Snakes, the Distance holds such stylistic touches at arm's length, allowing them to color, if not dominate, their tried-and-true formula of forceful, angsty melodic punk rock.
The Distance was a Connecticut hardcore band from 2001 to 2008 founded by Jay Reason (Voice Of Reason, Blackened). The Distance released a variety of music on Takeover Records, Bridge 9 Records, ThinkFast! Records & Abacus Records. While The Distance had its share of members, the definitive line up consisted of Jay Reason, James Ward, John Dobyns (Twitch The Ripper) & Lonn (Twitch The Ripper).
This is their only full length release.
