Secrets are an up-and-coming band that have recently been signed to Velocity records. Since forming in 2011, the group has already gained a dedicated fan following and have toured with popular acts such as Attack Attack, Sleeping With Sirens, Escape the Fate and The Word Alive. When the guys recently stopped by Toronto, ON, I got a chance to talk to vocalist Xander Bourgeois and drummer Joe English about the “This World Is Ours Tour”, their debut release and what the future has in store for Secrets.

Released on January 17, 2012 via Velocity/Rise Records, The Ascent is the debut full-length by San Diego, CA based band Secrets. I will admit that I hadn’t heard anything about these guys prior to listening to this album. That said, I am quite impressed! Every song is solid, catchy and heavy. You can’t help but want to sing-along, bob your head, and punch someone in the face all at the same time!
