Inner Turmoil - Trapped At Birth CDEP Digipack
Inner Turmoil is a quintet hailing from Harrisburg Pennsylvania. Located in Central Pennsylvania, which is not typically known for its heavy hitting presence in hardcore, they are aiming to change that. Based in the Capital City of Pennsylvania and playing out of state they often get asked “Is that near Philly or Pittsburgh.” Unfortunately it isn’t near either, and traveling to play shows is a very normal occurrence for the band. They have brought a lot of bands to their area too trying to build up Central PA’s Hardcore scene. Though they have only been playing shows from 2019 they have already shared the stage with bands like Integrity, In Cold Blood, Departed, Gloves Off, and Dissent.
Band members :
James - Vocals
Pat - Guitar
CJ - Guitar
Todd - Bass
Jeff - Drums
After releasing their first single One Choice Left (a song about the struggles of addiction leading to the final choice of recovery or suicide) in August of this year, the band headed directly back to the studio to record the Trapped At Birth EP.
"We live in "Coffin County" (Dauphin County’s nickname due to its high rate of drug overdose deaths) and all have struggled with addiction, too many deaths to count, mental illness, homelessness, and countless struggles that they have pulled through and needed to get out in music”
This 6 track "Trapped At Birth" EP is filled with everything they have experienced. From growing up in mentally, physically, and sexually abusive families, putting friends in the ground all to often, depression and suicide. They all have experienced true hopelessness in moments yet keep moving forward and pushing to achieve what they were told they could never accomplish.
