Honor Bright Syracuse, New York's Honor Bright is a pop punk-leaning five-piece rock collective with huge aspirations and a band that's definitely in it for all the right reasons. You see, rather than try and cash in on the latest trends in order to make a quick buck, Honor Bright are focused on longevity; they want to play music for music's sake. And from the sound of the band's previous offering, 2008's "If This Was a Movie," their forthcoming Triple Crown Records debut, "Action! Drama! Suspense!" is sure to prove that these guys will make every note count. Honor Bright - who've drawn comparisons to bands liek Taking Back Sunday, Mayday Parade, and All Time Low - began in 2006, following a short-lived hardcore stint between founding front man Liam DiCosimo and guitarist/vocalist Tim Paige. "We didn't want to just call it quits, so we decided we were going to start playing the kind of music we grew up listening to, like Green Day and MXPX. Something closer to a pop-punk sound," explains DiCosimo. "But, because we all came from rock & roll and hardcore bands, we wanted to still have that rock edge to it." By the close of 2006, bassist Anthony Merritt, drummer Curt Henry, and guitarist Ryan Gilmore joined the fold, solidifying the band's lineup.
