After their succesful debut album "For The Cause" and playing numerous shows, they did two split 7"es, one with Bloodpact from Detroit and later on with one of the biggest bands in hardcore, Ensign from New Jersey, all released on Reflections Records.

No matter what the next trend in hardcore may be, no matter what style is popular, Reaching Forward doesn't care. From the time that they decided to start a band, they wanted to play hardcore as they felt hardcore should be: fast, positive and hard. After their succesful debut album "For The Cause" and playing numerous shows, they did two split 7"es, one with Bloodpact from Detroit and later on with one of the biggest bands in hardcore, Ensign from New Jersey, all released on Reflections Records.

Having influences from both skatepunk and the hardest New York City-style hardcore they manage to combine both sides of the spectrum without ever leaving that typical hardcore sound. Singer Johnny bursts out his most personal feelings in their lyrics where also their combined belief in Straight Edge is still standing strong. With their album "Burning The Lies" Reaching Forward was ready for the next step. Having Boston's based label Bridge Nine (American Nightmare, Shark Attack…) releasing the record in the US.

In 2002 they called it quits and played one last (legendary) show (available on dvd through Reflections Records) and a final 7". Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
