Hoist the Colours! is a band from the small town of New Port Richey, FL. HtC! has influences from Rise Against, A Day to Remember, and Senses Fail. Starting out in early 2011, Josh Hensley had the idea to make a "one-man" hardcore band. He wrote songs like, Fall of King Arthur", and "3 Strikes, Your Out!!!" and few more off the demo on his own. Meeting up with Kenny Day to borrow some equipment for recording, Kenny heard the scratch tracks and immediately wanted to start a full band. Josh declined and recorded his solo project. A few weeks after completion, Kenny's demands finally sunk in with Josh and HtC! was born. In need of a bass player, long time friend Thomas Bigler stepped up and became the new bassist, and after a few drummer auditions, Jeff Durso became the full time drummer. Eventually, after some try-outs, HtC! found Mike Manning who became the bands full time vocalist. Now, HtC! is tearing up stages all over Florida and hopes to continue on to a Nationwide tour!
