Featuring vocalist Joe Nelson (IGNITE, TRIGGERMAN, THE KILLING FLAME), drummer Pat Longrie (UNIFORM CHOICE, UNITY), bassist Mike Kenyon and guitarist Joe D. Foster (UNITY, IGNITE, SPEAK 714, LASTLIGHT), expectations are certainly high for WINDS Of PROMISE, the latest band to come out of the Orange County, CA hardcore scene.
WINDS Of PROMISE’s origin story actually goes back to the mid-’80s when Longrie and Foster’s previous band, UNITY, broke up. They wrote some new songs and chose their new moniker, but the material would end up landing on records by UNIFORM CHOICE and NO FOR AN ANSWER. While the first attempt of the group didn’t last, Longrie and Foster remained friends throughout the years. They rekindled their musical connection in 2017, eventually bringing in Nelson and Kenyon to the fold.
Fusing their love for ’80s DC-styled hardcore with their California punk roots, WINDS Of PROMISE write and perform the kind of tunes that have equal amounts of melody and grit. The band released their self-titled debut album in fall 2018.
