Build Hearts from Stars (Deluxe Edition)
Formed in Syracuse, New York in 2006, pop-punk rockers, Honor Bright, performed at numerous local and regional venues, quickly developing a large fanbase with their energetic and fan-friendly live shows. They were originally known as Trouble On The Dance Floor, but changed their name to Honor Bright to avoid confusion with the similarly-named Panic At The Disco. Their first recording, a self-titled, 5-song EP, was released in 2006. They opened for several well-known rock acts including Cartel, Anberlin, Boys Like Girls, and Bayside.On June 3, 2007, the band self-released their first full-length album Build Hearts From Stars. Honor Bight took a large step when they were voted on to the Vans Warped Tour in 2008, playing the Ernie Ball Stage at the Buffalo, NY (Darien Center) show on July 24 of that year. That performance led to the band being chosen to play on MTV's high profile program Total Request Live (aka TRL), on July 30. They performed an acoustic version of 'Home Is A Heartache', a track from their EP, If This Was A Movie, released two days after the MTV performance. On August 11, 2008, the band was selected as the front page Featured Artist on PureVolume, where they topped the 'Rock', 'Emo', 'Pop' and 'All Genre' charts. In October 2008, Honor Bright signed with The Artery Foundation which manages several popular rock bands including Alesana, A Day To Remember and A Static Lullaby. On December 1, 2008 the band re-released 'Build Hearts From Stars' on Aux Records, with two bonus tracks, at a show in Syracuse while opening for Forever The Sickest Kids. Guitarist Tim Paige formed a solo side project, The Brilliant Light, which has also signed to Aux Records. In early 2009, they were featured in the unsigned band sections of both Alternative Press (AP) and American Music Press (AMP) magazines. For the second consecutive year, Honor Bright won a spot on the Van's Warped Tour. This time winning AP's AP&R fan vote for the opportunity to play the Cleveland date. On July 11, 2009, Honor Bright announced that they had signed with Triple Crown Records. They recorded their first album for Triple Crown in November/December 2009 in Florida with Tom Denney, formerly of A Day To Remember, and Jason Lancaster of Go Radio and formerly of Mayday Parade. The album is slated for a Spring 2010 release. In March, 2010, Honor Bright was named one of the '100 Bands You Need To Know' in Alternative Press' highly-anticipated, annual feature. That accolade earned the band a slot on AP's stage at SXSW in Austin, TX.
