Massachusetts-based Have Heart have been bringing their blend of straight-edge and metalcore to the table since 2003, but their second full-length album, SONGS TO SCREAM AT THE SUN, finds them perfecting their marriage of punk purity and thrash theatrics. Patrick Flynn's soul-baring scream and equally intense lyrics lend a fair amount of emotional heft to the band's hard-hitting sound throughout this release.
Alternative Press (p.154) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- SONGS TO SCREAM AT THE SUN allows room for the songs to breathe and brood. The tempos are substantially slower, lending anvil-like weight to the mammoth riffs and cavernous drums."
Kerrang (Magazine) (p.50) - "These 10 tracks of perfectly executed emotional hardcore are powerful and genuinely stirring, laced with drama, rage and pushed forth via the raw and potent vocals of Patrick Flynn."
