Revered Philly independent label Innerstrength Records is proud to announce the signing of Alabama based rock quintet West Means Home. The band joins an eclectic roster of rock, metal and punk bands, including rising acts like 156/Silence, Rig Time and Machinist among others. The label will kick off the partnership with the release of the band’s first full length album, Hope This Reaches You, in Spring 2019. Additional details to follow.
“We crossed paths with Innerstrength hundreds of miles from home on one of our northeast tours. They’ve done so much to help us build this new record. Hope this Reaches You is the sum of the places we’ve been, emotionally and physically this past year. Our new music represents the extreme highs and lows we’ve experienced as we’ve transitioned into adulthood. Conceptually and musically, this is our most authentic release yet. For us, this album was less about writing a song, and more about creating something tangible that we could be proud of.” – West Means Home

Based in Florence, AL, West Means Home combines an electrifying passion and soulful guitar riffs to create a “wall of sound,” that translates from record to stage seamlessly. Appealing to fans of All Get Out, Microwave and Taking Back Sunday, among others, the band’s influences range from early emo alternative to classic Southern rock for a completely original sound.
Following their formation in 2015, West Means Home experienced swift momentum after the independent release of their debut single and music video which garnered thousands of views and the attention of Dashboard Confessional frontman Chris Carrabba who touted the band on Facebook. To date, West Means Home has released an EP Something From Nothing (2016), a live “Sanctuary Session,” a music video for the track “Invitation” and a split record with Boxer Joy, that have all led to the anticipated album debut in the spring.
