GETTING INTO: Victory Records, As Chosen by High Hopes

Victory Records

Chicago-based Victory Records has been a crucial platform for rock, emo, ska and metalcore bands since it’s creation back in 1989.

Although ‘Tragedy Will Find Us’ is an aptly titled slice of bellicose hardcore misery from Ontario five-piece Counterparts, this typically bleak affair boasts a healthy amount of the melodic sensibilities and uncompromising aggression essential of the band’s upward ascent. Couple this with some nods towards an emerging anthemic streak and some deft songwriting touch ups, and this fourth full-length missive is a more than convincing step in the right direction.
