The band, consisting of vocalist/guitarist Ed Starcher, guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Andy Cook, bassist/vocalist Connor Johnson and drummer Joey Regets – recorded Existent with Eric Cronstein (Struck By Lightning, The Sidekicks, Lemon Sky) in Columbus, OH.
Existent will be the follow-up to 2011’s Hither & Yon, which was Reverse The Curse’s debut for Paper + Plastick Records. The record brought the band some critical acclaim, as Alternative Press editor Scott Heisel wrote that the band decidedly turned away from the popular trends in post-hardcore, creating a new sound, experimenting with new techniques, and ultimately pulling them off remarkably. “…The band’s most unexpected tones and turns feel the most accomplished and gripping,” Heisel wrote. “Reverse The Curse are taking a popularized punk sound they’d already honed well and breaking it apart for something new and exciting. If that’s the new trend, they’ve effortlessly spearheaded it.”
