If you're familiar with the Minnesota metal and rock scene, you just might recognize a few of these faces.

About a week ago, Minneapolis drummer Alex Carlson reached out to me because he was excited about a new project he'd be working on. I quite literally took it as a prank when he said he'd be releasing "more information" on April 1st.

That was yesterday. We learned he wasn't joking. Check out Minnesota's newest metal band!

Steadfast is; Joseph Marshall - Guitar, Alex Nikolas - Guitar, Alex Carlson - Drums and Shawn Primrose - Vocals. You'll probably recognize those faces if you're from Minneapolis. Individually, they've toured with other bands before.

Right now, they're holding a lot back as far what they'll sound like. We know they're a confirmed hardcore four piece, but that's about it. However, I'm told we'll be getting a taste of more "soon". Keep updated on their journey by giving them a "like" on Facebook!

More to come!
