Test of Time’s first proper full-length will be coming this summer from Bridge Nine. Titled By Design, this album was recorded via a partnership between the band themselves for guitars and vocals and Q Division Studios for drums. Songwriting topics on By Design include similar themes to the band’s previous work: vegetarianism, perseverance, and one’s own personal growth and change. By Design is Test of Time’s landmark effort and will be available July 22nd on all formats from Bridge Nine Records.
Test of Time was formed just about two years ago by a group of friends with mutual admiration for both straight edge and hardcore punk music. Their mission early on was simple: to create music a little different than what was dominating the Boston hardcore scene. Test of Time succeeded in doing so, and wrote and released their debut EP Inclusion and followed that up with their Bridge Nine debut EP The Price in September of 2013. In conjunction, Test of Time played high-profile shows along the Eastern Seaboard and went on to tour Central America in the Fall of the same year.
Test of Time will also be heading over to Europe later this summer – shows are listed below with more to be announced soon. Stay tuned to Test of Time’s blog and bandcamp page for more news coming soon.
