Hostage Calm Think Big On “A Thousand Miles Away From Here”

Premieres

Connecticut’s Hostage Calm has never been a band to rest easy creatively. Starting as a hardcore band in the vein of Turning Point with the politics of Trial, the band has undergone an evolution since 2010’s album Hostage Calm that continued with Please Remain Calm. In their third record for Run For Cover, Die on Stage, the band has taken an even bigger leap. We saw the band’s growing Britpop sensibilities on their first single, “Your Head/Your Heart,” and on “A Thousand Miles Away From Here,” the song channels, at different moments, late 90s post-hardcore like Rival Schools and maybe even some mainstream pop, yet still remains one of the most focused and direct tracks the band has ever written.
