Founded on beliefs that are in short supply within the current underground music scene, BANE has established themselves as one of the most influential and relevant bands in hardcore today. Since their inception, they've become one of the scene's hardest working bands touring the world over and releasing the full lengths, "It All Comes Down To This" and 2001's critically acclaimed "Give Blood," an album that breathed life into the then-stagnant hardcore scene. Returning with their first album in three years, Bane offer up "The Note" - an album that embodies the spirit, the community, and the love of traditional hardcore that Bane has become synonymous with. In stark contrast with many of its contemporaries "The Note" is not laden with trends but with powerful, energetic and passionate performances that serve as a wake up call for modern day hardcore.

"Throughout my fifteen years as a drummer, I've had a number of different kits. Volume and tone are significant factors, as I play fast and hard. Noble & Cooley drums provide the ultimate in durability, volume, tone, and - to top it all off - great look." -Bob Mahoney
