Hailing from sunny San Diego, CA, SECRETS has already made an impact as one of the most promising up and coming acts in the scene. Armed with irresistibly catchy choruses, soaring vocals, and mercilessly dynamic breakdowns, its no wonder the post-hardcore five-piece has seen such success since signing to Velocity/Rise Records in the spring of 2011.
Velocity Records' Dave Shapiro says, "When I heard these songs, I knew San Diego had yet another band that would be at the forefront of their genre." Rise Records' founder Craig Ericson is equally pumped on the signing, explaining, "Dave showed me the band and I immediately knew these guys were keepers."
SECRETS released their debut full length The Ascent in January of 2012 to rave reviews. The record debuted at #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and became the first Velocity Records release to crack the Billboard Top 200, debuting at #185. SECRETS toured heavily in support of The Ascent, supporting acts such as Sleeping With Sirens, Attack Attack!, Escape The Fate, Silverstein, as well as appearing on the entire Scream It Like You Mean it tour in 2012.
After seamlessly making a change by adding new vocalist Aaron Melzer to the lineup in March 2013, SECRETS released their follow up to The Ascent, Fragile Figures, on July 23rd 2013. The album turned heads of fans and critics alike, ultimately debuting at #57 on the Billboard 200. After supporting the release with a two week stint on the Vans Warped tour in the summer of 2013, SECRETS is poised to return to the tour with a full run in the summer of 2014.
