Many albums that I love are celebrating anniversaries this year, some older than others. These next few weeks I will review some of my favorites and share my love for all kinds of music.
The now defunct Have Heart was formed in 2002 by vocalist Patrick Flynn, guitarist Ryan Hudon, and bassist Ryan Briggs. After releasing a demo in November 2003, the trio was slowly climbing the ranks within the Boston hardcore scene. By 2005, they signed to a bigger label and added drummer Shawn Costa alongside guitarist Kei Yasui. Their first EP titled “The Things We Carry” was released in 2006, cementing Have Heart into the center of not only Boston hardcore, but the entire hardcore scene.
